The all-new TCR Advanced SL Disc gives you the ultimate advantage over the competition. The ultra-efficient frame stands out from the pack with the superior stiffness-to- weight ratio of its Advanced SL-grade composite. And flat-mount disc brakes, integrated seamlessly with the design of the frame and fork, give you added control to corner, descend and ride with more speed.
Giant’s Professional-grade raw carbon fiber is woven in our own composite factory using a proprietary resin formula and our most advanced engineering and construction methods including Continuous Fiber Technology, CNT Technology and Fusion Process.
Every tube shape in the Advanced SL-grade composite frame is engineered to minimize weight, maintain stiffness and improve overall ride quality.
Complete composite construction and a minimalist design reduces weight while increasing stiffness. The redesigned OverDrive 2 steerer tube positions the lower bearing higher in the headtube, resulting in an improved transfer of force to the frame for sharp steering and cornering capabilities plus a smooth overall ride quality.
The frame and fork are engineered specifically for flat-mount disc brakes, including front and rear 12mm thru-axles for the most reliable braking and handling in all types of weather and road conditions.
A massive rectangular-shaped downtube links together the OverDrive front end and PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered tube shape yields optimal steering and pedaling stiffness while minimizing overall frame weight.
The oversized bottom bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated 86mm wide BB design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Specifically engineered for the needs of competitive road racers, Variant’s refined shape and integrated design result in a ride quality that perfectly balances compliance and efficiency.
New internal cable routing with larger ports and a tool-free bottom bracket guide, designed for easy cable installation without any added weight.
