TECHNOLOGIES

Class-leading efficiency: With an outstanding stiffness-to-weight ratio and updated aero tube shaping, the TCR Advanced Pro frameset is engineered to give road racers and riders superior climbing capabilities, aerodynamic efficiency and sprint stiffness for race-winning performance.

Advanced aerodynamics: 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.

Total control: Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful stopping power and modulation for added control in variable weather and road conditions. Flat mounts and new thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, while added frame and fork clearance allows for larger diameter tyres up 32mm.

ADVANCED COMPOSITE

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 is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.

TRUNCATED ELLIPSE TUBING

New strategically engineered airfoil sections in the frame and fork, developed through CFD and wind-tunnel testing, improve aerodynamic efficiency, reducing wind drag at a wider range of yaw angles compared to traditional teardrop shaped tubes.

SYMMETRIC COMPOSITE FORK

The new Advanced-grade composite fork features a symmetric design and aero shaping, along with disc-brake integration and increased clearance for tyres up to 32mm. The design makes it lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic.

CONTACT SL HANDLEBAR

New Contact SL handlebar features modified cable routing to provide a smart balance of aerodynamics, rider ergonomics and hassle-free setup and maintenance.

OVERDRIVE 2

The most advanced steerer tube technology in today’s Giant bikes. Designed to o er 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.

MEGADRIVE

A massive rectangular downtube forms the link between the OverDrive 2 headtube area and the PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered, rectangular shape yields unprecedented steering and pedalling stiffness while optimizing aerodynamic ow over a standard water bottle.

POWERCORE

A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Symmetric chain stays provide additional stiffness on the drive side and stability on the non-drivesides.

ALL-NEW TUBELESS WHEELSYSTEMS

Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing, all-new composite WheelSystems are set up factory tubeless and provide improved efficiency, comfort and control.

— HOW TO FUEL YOUR LONG RIDE —

DISC-BRAKE INTEGRATION

The frame and fork are engineered with full-composite, at-mount disc-brake mounts for powerful, consistent braking performance in all conditions.

RIDESENSE

Giant’s chainstay-integrated, wireless data transmitter. The removable transmitter sends wheel speed and cadence information directly to any ANT+/BLE compatible computer.
