Yay proprietary shock mounts :huh:


It might be the new "metric" shock sizing and mounting.

Good to see they're taking full advantage of the new metric shock standards, its nice to see a decent sized shock packaged so neatly. One piece upper rocker looks nice too.

Trances look mean.
Amazing how the new Anthems are now longer travel, longer, lower and slacker than my Trance :lol:
Stuff has evolved for the betterer in the last 10 years :thumbsup:

It's so weird though. The new anthem is like the old trance. The new trance is like the old reign. The new reign is like the old reign X.

Yeah dunno why they needed to bump up the travel to 150mm.
140mm is a pretty sweet spot.


Derp it's a 150mm fork.
Says the guy running 160mm :blush:

Rumor has it there'll be a new XC 29er released at some point in the not too distant future as well. Really interested how Giant's marketing department plans to undo their '27.5 is best for everything' doctrine :lol: :hmmm:
