Winning race bikes have just the right balance of light weight, stiffness and smooth compliance on the road. TCR Advanced delivers on all three and adds updated aero performance.
Lightweight composite materials and tubing shapes result is a lively ride quality, explosive acceleration and improved climbing efficiency with greater torsional frame stiffness than key competitor bikes.
This is where the TCRs most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analysed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles.
A composite fork delivers torsional stiffness for sharp handling and steering precision. And a Giant WheelSystem with tubeless technology allows you to run lower tyre pressures for increased grip and a reduced risk of punctures.
Giants High Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
Giants original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the systems oversized headset bearings (1 1/4 lower and 1 1/8 upper for road, 1 1/2 lower and 1 1/8 upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design (92-millimeter wide for off-road bikes). Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
This frame comes prepared to accept the Giant RideSense sensor and accompanying hardware.
This proprietary seatpost design offers an optimized balance of light weight, superior ride quality and simple adjustment to enhance the total race performance of the TCR road range.
