OverDrive

Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide solid front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.

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.

Fusion Process

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.

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.

Increased Rear Wheel Clearance

Helps shed dirt and mud so the goop remains on the trail, not on your bike.

’Cross-Specific Tubing

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was used to create tube shapes that enhance the performance and ride quality for cyclocross racing. Most tube diameters are smaller, creating a more compliant, ride-tuned bike that “flows” through tight corners and constantly changing terrain. Other touches include a flattened and smoother toptube shape for easier shouldering.

Internal Cable Routing

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

Overview

CHAOTIC STARTS AND SCREAMING FANS. MUD, SNOW, SAND AND ICE. RABOBANK PROS FACE IT ALL AT WORLD CUP ’CROSS RACES. HERE’S HOW THEY HANDLE IT.

The TCX Advanced SL was developed with one goal: to win. It has earned rainbow stripes, national titles and bragging rights in all kinds of conditions. The Advanced SL-grade composite frame is built with cyclocross-specific geometry, including a high top tube for easier shouldering and plenty of clearance for larger tires and muddy conditions. The integrated seatpost reduces weight and gives it a smooth, compliant ride quality. Giant’s OverDrive steerer tube technology delivers precision steering, and the MegaDrive downtube and toptube produce sharp handling and efficiency.

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.
