10 Aug New Giant Trance X and Anthem X

Giant has unveiled 2010 lineup this week at an event in Keystone CO.

The most exciting of the new bikes are the carbon versions of the Trance X and the Anthem X.

The Anthem X frame has lost 200 grams over the alloy version, which was already a reasonably light 5 lb frame. The Trance X (their 5″ trail bike platform) has shed an amazing 400 grams, nearly a whole pound, over the ’09 alloy version.

The bikes look amazing, and are totally decked out component-wise. The 2010 Anthem X Advanced SL 0 comes equipped with Sram XX gruppo, and is out of the box at 21.8 lbs, reportedly.

Velo News has a good write up about the bikes, with an interesting lesson about Giant’s carbon processes to go with.

I am excited.
