From high alpine roads to grueling classics races, this is the choice for ultralight weight, super-stiff pedalling transmission and aero efficiency. Re-engineered to climb, corner and descend with uncompromising all-rounder speed, the all-new TCR Advanced SL is the winning choice.Whatever the race situation, the legendary TCR Advanced SL gives you an advantage. It’s built on the lightest road frameset ever produced by Giant and features new aero tube shaping in the headtube, downtube and fork for pure speed and efficiency. The Variant integrated seatpost design saves weight while also adding compliance for a smoother ride on rough roads. Proven Compact Road Design gives the TCR Advanced SL the perfect blend of razor-sharp handling and confident control, and a new aero-efficient Giant Contact SL composite handlebar and stem complete this race-winning package.
New cutting-edge composite materials, reengineered tubing shapes and advanced robotic layup techniques result is a livelier ride quality, explosive acceleration and improved climbing efficiency with outstanding torsional frame stiffness.
This is where the TCR’s most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analyzed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles. The result is a TCR that’s faster than ever in sprints and solo situations.
From composite WheelSystems with greater crosswind stability to user-friendly tubeless tyre setups, this new TCR delivers greater control in a wide variety of road conditions. An all-new composite fork boasts impressive torsional stiffness.
Professional Grade raw carbon fiber is woven in our composite factory to produce our lightest, stiffest and highest quality frames. This is the technology used by Giant’s pro racers in almost every cycling discipline.
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.
Designed as a key performance factor in the overall frameset, the integrated seatpost saves up to 45 grams compared to standard composite posts, while improving aerodynamics and adding road-smoothing compliance.
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.
The most advanced steerer tube technology in today’s Giant bikes. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering 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.
