BikeRadar recently tested the 2017 TCR Advanced SL, the same bike that Team Sunweb rider Tom Dumoulin used to conquer the high peaks of Italy and win the Giro d’Italia, and they loved everything about it. Ranking the lightweight composite flyer with a perfect 5-star score, they highlighted its feathery light weight, silky smooth ride quality and Giant tubeless wheel and tire technology.
“The TCR seems to have been around forever, but has kept evolving without losing its soul,” wrote BikeRadar editor Robin Wilmott. “A super-light bike doesn’t always guarantee a good ride, as some feel skittish, but years of carbon expertise mean that’s not the case here.”
“The tubeless wheelset and tyres are impressively feathery too. Acceleration is as easy as it is blistering. I have little doubt that being tubeless improves ride quality, grip and rotational weight, and sealant adds reliability.”
