AeroSystem Shaping Technology

Exhaustive Computational Fluid Dynamics research and wind-tunnel tests conducted with a dynamic mannequin produced data revealing how various tube shapes and assemblages affect each other in a broad range of realworld yaw angles. Engineers used that data to optimize the shape of every tube and junction for overall system aerodynamics.

SpeedControl SLR

Proprietary braking system offers powerful, aerodynamic stopping power. A composite reverse-position front brake and seatstay-mounted rear brake are hidden from the wind. The system also features strategic trailing edges that further improve aerodynamics.

Integrated Seatpost

As the pioneer of the integrated seatpost, Giant continues to improve its original design with lighter weight (approximately 45 grams of weight savings, compared to a standard composite seatpost), improved aerodynamics and an even greater “tuned” forgiving ride feel. An adjustable saddle clamp offers 10 or 23 millimeters of offset for precise saddle position.

Advanced SL-grade composite Technology

The highest-performance T-800 raw carbon-fiber material is painstakingly woven in Giant’s own composite factory to create the most cutting-edge frames available today. This is the technology used by Giant’s world championship caliber racers as they compete in the most demanding events on the planet. These frames feature the most advanced engineering and construction methods.

OverDrive 2

Giant’s innovative oversized fork steerer-tube design increases front-end stiffness and enhances steering performance. The tapered steerer and oversized bearings (1 1/4-inch top, 1 1/2-inch bottom) boost torsional steering stiffness so you can sprint and corner with supreme precision.

PowerCore

A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.

RideSense

Giant’s all-new chainstay integrated, wireless data transmitter. The fully integrated, removable transmitter sends wheelspeed and cadence information directly to any ANT+ compatible computer.

Internal Cable Routing

Frame features unique internal cable porting for sleek, non-cluttered appearance and performance.

Overview

SPRINT FINISHES. SOLO ATTACKS . BREAKAWAYS . YOU LIVE FOR THESE MOMENTS. SO DOES THIS BIKE.

Years of research, development and testing in the wind tunnel and on the roads led to the all-new Propel Advanced SL, the world’s fastest aero road bike. Its wind-slicing new innovations include AeroSystem Shaping technology, the integrated SpeedControl SLR brake system and Contact SLR Aero handlebar. The Advanced SL-grade composite frame, with best-in-class light weight, OverDrive 2 steerer tube for front end stiffness and control, and integrated seatpost for aerodynamics and compliance, help make Propel Advanced SL faster from every angle.

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.
