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.
Lighter weight (by 45 grams), improved aerodynamics and an even greater “tuned” forgiving ride feel over a standard round composite seatpost.
A complex process involves hand weaving the toptube and seattube together, then re-moulding the area under heat and high pressure to unify the junction—resulting in a lighter, stronger junction than with traditional moulding.
Acting like miniature buttresses, CNT resin particles strengthen the layers of composite. Frames treated with CNT are 14 percent more impact resistant than those that aren’t.
Continuous Fibre Technology
Giant is able to construct the front triangle of Advanced SL bicycles with larger—and therefore fewer—sections of composite material resulting in lighter weight and greater strength.
The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedalling stiffness.
Free of alloy tips, Giant’s composite fork and frame dropouts save 15 grams over their predecessors.

|Weight||The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.|
