Just in time for cyclocross season, the 2018 TCX Advanced Pro is featured in a new review by VeloNews.com, earning high praise for its efficiency, handling and smooth ride as a high-performance CX race machine.
VeloNews technical editor Dan Cavallari put the lightweight composite-framed bike to the test on a cyclocross track in Boulder, Colorado, and wrote: “Pushing the TCX Advanced Pro 1 up a false-flat on the backside of Valmont Bike Park felt intuitive and stable even while torqueing hard and leaning the bike over. The Giant encourages pedal-mashing, and it keeps you on an even keel as you do so.”
Detailing the bike’s handling characteristics and smooth feel in variable terrain, Cavallari wrote: “Fortunately, the Giant’s ultra-responsive feel during hard, quick sprints doesn’t translate into a jarring ride. The D-Fuse seatpost seems to make good on its claims. It flexes slightly along the flat side for a bit of compliance without straying into bouncy territory. Ultimately, the TCX Advanced Pro lies on the more comfortable end of the ’cross bike spectrum, but not to the point of being vague or soft.”
