Purely the best.

The Good:

Fast, easy to maneuver, confidence inspiring, excellent climber

The Bad:

Can make for a nerve wracking experience on only treacherous descends.

Overall Review:

So easy to blaze through the trails with the Anthem. Only a few times going down steep descend that I felt overwhelmed. Had to really position myself over the rear tire, but other than that. Great bike.

Great for all day riding

The Good:

climbs anything

The Bad:

No problems yet.

Overall Review:

Picked this bike up from my local shop after riding one at a demo event. I have been loving every minute of my riding.  the 2x10 deore system shifts smoothly even under heavy loads. the shimano brakes were great right out of the box and  their stopping power is amazing.
