Rolling over roots and rocks, leaning through S-turns, taking jumps – every obstacle you encounter when riding the Giant Anthem Advanced 27.5 0 Team feels puny. The bike combines the company's revered rear-suspension system with the new 27.5-inch wheels, as well as a very fast-to-spin-up drive train. In fact, the moment you hit the pedals, the 22-pound Anthem leaps, but you'll never feel unsteady: Its carbon frame holds taut through corners like a stiff race ski. Fun and fast, it's everything a modern race bike should be. [$8,250; giant-bicycles.com]
