NEVERS, France (VN) — When Giant Bicycles first launched their Propel aero bike four years ago the only weak spot
in an otherwise fantastic, fast package was the brakes, a pair of mushy
mini-Vs that served to decrease both drag and the ability to stop. That
issue is now behind us. Giant’s all-new, completely redesigned range of
Propel bikes is equipped with Shimano disc brakes, and Giant says
they’re faster than ever — and faster than the competition.
The Giant Propel Advanced Disc range has been in development for
three years and the new disc bike was first spotted in July at the Tour
de France under Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb). Matthews sprinted to
third on stage 7 at the Tour atop the new Propel Disc.
Giant started with the discs and built the bike around them. That
means the Propel has an entirely new geometry and tube shaping compared
to the old model. The company brought nothing from the previous
generation rim-brake Propel, it says. Leaving those v-brakes behind is
just fine, but did they hit the mark elsewhere?
With new Kona models arriving over the
next couple of weeks, we’re doing a series of posts here to
introduce the new bikes. Keep an eye here for rad new bikes and

Last month Giant unveiled the all-new Anthem 29 range of cross-country bikes featuring new geometry and updates to its Maestro Suspension system.
Editors from some of the world’s top cycling publications and websites
got a chance to meet some of the product designers and athletes who
helped develop the new Anthem 29 during a media event in Southern
California. They also got a chance to ride the new Anthem Advanced Pro 29 on coastal California trails near Malibu to get their first impressions.
With new Kona models arriving at our bike shop over the next
couple of weeks, we’re doing a series of posts here on our blog to
introduce the new bikes. Keep an eye here all week for rad new bikes and
updates to current models. Today we bring you the first arrivals of the
freshly updated MTB Hardtail collection.
Giant’s all-new carbon 29er cross country race bike is quick as lightning
Introduced in 2005, the Anthem 29 had been the brand’s premier cross-country
race platform for a number of seasons. During that time, it has taken
on various forms in terms of wheel size and frame material seeing the
most recent update coming four years ago with a swap to 27.5-inch wheels
and 110mm of travel. During those years, the Anthem X 100mm 29er
remained in the line but the 27.5 version was considered the line's
elite model and the bike the Giant factory team raced on. Giant was at
the forefront of the movement toward the smaller 27.5 wheels, but as the
pendulum has swung back to 29-inch wheels across categories, but
particularly in cross-country racing, the 29er platform was in need of a serious update.
