Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
Aerosystem Shaping Technology
Advanced Composite Frame
High Performance Grade raw carbon fiber and Giant’s proprietary resin formula is used to produce custom composite material in our own composite factory that is extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
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.
This full-composite, lightweight and highly aerodynamic seatpost is engineered specifically for performance road riding.
Internal Cable Routing
Frame/handlebar/stem feature unique cable porting for sleek, non-cluttered appearance and performance.
The frame and fork are engineered specifically for flat-mount disc-brakes, including front and rear 12mm thru-axles for reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
Aero Bar and Stem
Contact SLR aero composite handlebar and Contact SL Aero alloy stem are designed to reduce overall drag while minimizing weight.
