    2016 Anthem SX 2 weight

    Apologies if this has been done to death. (I tried using the search facility to no avail)

    My partner isn't the strongest, so weight is pretty important for her first bike. Does anyone know the weight of the 2016 Anthem SX (2)?


    Thanks

    I weighted the 2017 Anthem SX myself @13,08kg with flat pedals but this is a higher spec 1x11 bike so the 2x10 equipped 2016 modell should be slightly heavier

    not sure what weight you were expecting from an Aluminum bike (the Alu Anthems are all within a narrow 500g range) but bike weight is less the concern here IMO

    If your woman is a weak one buy her a LIV bike with appropriate colour and gearing to make her happy

    Strange. The 2015 XT equipped bike was 11.6kg, so that's quite surprising

    The 2015 Anthem SX weighs 28lbs without pedals (12.8kg)

    maybe you're confusing it with the Anthem Advanced SX which is indeed below 12kg

    I was going off this, definitely the Alu frame
