Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in our own composite factory using our most advanced engineering and construction methods including: Continuous Fiber Technology to add strength while reducing weight; Carbon Nanotube Technology resin to improve impact resistance; and Fusion Process for lighter, stronger frame junctions.
ADVANCED SL COMPOSITE
TRUNCATED ELLIPSE TUBING
Strategically engineered airfoil sections in the frame and fork, developed through CFD and wind-tunnel testing, improve aerodynamic efficiency, reducing wind drag at a wider range of yaw angles compared to traditional teardrop shaped tubes.
VARIANT INTEGRATED SEATPOST
Specifically engineered for competitive road racers, Variant’s refined shape and integrated design result in a ride quality that perfectly balances compliance and efficiency.
CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSITE ASSEMBLY
Up to 150 small individual composite swatches are placed using robotic layup assembly. The swatches are laser-cut so that smaller, ultra-precise sections can be used, resulting in lighter weight framesets. Carbon Nanotube Technology resin improves impact resistance, and Fusion Process creates lighter, stronger frame junctions.
FULL COMPOSITE FORK
Advanced SL-grade composite fork features a symmetric design and aero shaping, along with disc-brake integration and increased clearance for tires up to 32mm. This new design makes it lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic.
CONTACT SLR HANDLEBAR
New Contact SLR handlebar features modified cable routing to provide a smart balance of aerodynamics, rider ergonomics and hassle-free setup and maintenance.
The most advanced steerer tube technology in today’s Giant bikes. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
A massive rectangular downtube forms the link between the OverDrive 2 headtube area and the PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered, rectangular shape yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness while optimizing aerodynamic flow over a standard water bottle.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Symmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
GIANT TUBELESS SYSTEM
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing, a composite WheelSystem and tubeless tires for improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
DISC BRAKE INTEGRATION
The frame and fork are engineered with flat-mount disc-brake technology for powerful, consistent braking performance in all conditions.
