Overview

A MODERN MASTERPIECE OF ADVANCED ENGINEERING. HANDBUILT TO CLIMB FASTER, RIDE SMOOTHER AND CORNER ON RAILS.

Using Advanced SL-grade composite and technical innovations including the OverDrive 2 steerer tube, which boosts front-end stiffness and steering precision, the TCR Advanced SL is the go-to choice for Team Blanco and Rabobank-Liv/giant pros that need one bike that can do it all. The MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket help boost power transfer and efficiency. The integrated seatpost saves 45 grams, improves aerodynamics, and produces a more compliant ride. And the integrated RideSense ANT+ wireless sensor lets you transmit performance data including cadence and speed. Handcrafted by Giant, the TCR Advanced SL outperforms competitor’s bikes in three key areas: Weight, Steering Stiffness, and Pedaling Stiffness.

And we can prove it. Watch this video that explains how the TCR Advanced SL frame wins when tested against the competition. Download the test results and see for yourself why you win with Giant.

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.
