Giant’s all-new oversize fork steerer-tube technology. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system’s oversize headset bearings and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
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 all-new adjustable saddle clamp offers -5 or +25 millimeters of offset for precise saddle position.
Advanced SL toptubes are “grafted” to the seattube using filament winding and co-molding. This complex process involves hand weaving the two tubes together, then re-molding the area under heat and high pressure to unify the junction—resulting in a lighter, stronger junction than with traditional molding.
Carbon Nanotube Technology refers to a microscopic polymer added to Giant’s custom-blended resin. Acting like miniature buttresses, CNT particles strengthen the layers of composite. Frames treated with CNT are 14 percent more impact-resistant than those that aren’t.
Continuous Fiber Technology
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 pedaling stiffness.
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.
Composite Bottom Bracket Shell
No longer using aluminum inserts, Giant’s all-new composite bottom bracket shells save 15 grams over its alloy-reinforced predecessor. High compression, multi-directional composite ensures long life.
A MODERN MASTERPIECE OF ADVANCED ENGINEERING. HANDBUILT TO CLIMB FASTER, RIDE SMOOTHER AND CORNER ON RAILS.

|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.|
