Show Highlights

OverDrive 2

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.

Integrated Seatpost

Lighter weight (by 45 grams), improved aerodynamics and an even greater “tuned” forgiving ride feel over a standard round composite seatpost.

Fusion Process

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.

CNT Technology

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.

Megadrive

The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedalling stiffness.

Composite Dropouts

Free of alloy tips, Giant’s composite fork and frame dropouts save 15 grams over their predecessors.

Composite Bottom Bracket Shell

Giant’s composite bottom bracket shell saves 15 grams over its alloy-reinforced predecessor

Overview

A living legend. When it comes to pro-level performance and versatility, nothing compares. It climbs, it sprints, it wins.

What’s the secret behind this bike’s astounding number of pro race wins? Giant is the only major manufacturer that controls every stage of composite production from raw carbon thread to the bike you see here. Handcrafted Advanced SL composite material-with Compact Road geometry, an OverDrive 2 steerer tube, MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket-offers the perfect blend of light weight, stiffness and compliance. The integrated seatpost saves 45 grams and adds compliance. The Ride Sense ANT+ wireless speed/cadence sensor helps you track your racewinning data.

WeightThe 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.
