ON THE ATTACK, IN A SPRINT, OR CORNERING AT SPEED. AERO SPEED MEETS TOTAL CONTROL IN THIS ALL-NEW Disc-BRAKE SOLO FLYER.
This all-new aero road bike minimizes drag so you can accelerate and sprint faster. It also introduces full disc-brake integration for more confidence and control in all types of weather and conditions. Engineered with AeroSystem Shaping technology and Advanced-grade composite, it delivers proven aero performance and one of the lightest frames in its category. New integrated disc brake technology includes flat-mount calipers and thru-axles for wheel stiffness and streamlined performance. The lightweight, easily adjustable Vector composite seatpost further minimizes drag. It all adds up to a race-ready machine that helps you leave the competition behind. Tubeless Ready.

The 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.

Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
Advanced Composite Technology
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 most advanced steerer tube technology offers unprecedented steering precision. Oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and a tapered steerer tube produce superior front-end 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.
Giant’s chainstay integrated, wireless data transmitter. The removable transmitter sends wheel speed and cadence information directly to any ANT+ compatible computer.
This full-composite, lightweight and highly aerodynamic seatpost is engineered specifically for performance road riding.
Integrated Giant WheelSystem
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology, this composite SLR Aero WheelSystem features different rim depths front and rear to minimize drag without compromising stability. The rear has a 65mm rim for uncompromising aero performance and power transmission. The front has a shallower 42mm rim for added control in crosswinds. The wheels are integrated with Giant Gavia tubeless tires for added rolling efficiency and a reduced risk of flats.
Internal Cable Routing
Frame/handlebar/stem feature unique cable porting for sleek, non-cluttered appearance and performance.
Disc Brake Integration
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.
Giant’s High Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
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 for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
