After three years away, the Giant Anthem 29er has made a welcome return to the ultra-competitive XCO market. Does it have the hallmark attributes to win back lost supporters? We think so. It’s fast, versatile and appreciably well-specced for where it’s positioned in the range – not to mention its confidence-inspiring geometry, which is truly flattering in a serpentine environment. The Anthem 2 is a solid all-round package – and as such, is likely to be the volume seller, thanks to the R39 495 sticker price. – Aaron Borrill
