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 is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
Truncated Ellipse Tubing
New 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.
This proprietary seatpost design offers the perfect balance of light weight, superior ride quality, aerodynamics and easy saddle installation and adjustment.
Symmetric Composite Fork
The new Advanced-grade composite fork features a symmetric design and aero shaping, along with disc-brake integration and increased clearance for tires up to 32mm. The design makes it lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic.
Contact SL Handlebar
New Contact SL 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-drivesides.
All-New Tubeless WheelSystems
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing, all-new composite WheelSystems are set up factory tubeless and provide improved efficiency, comfort and control.
The frame and fork are engineered with flat-mount disc-brake mounts for powerful, consistent braking performance in all conditions.
Hookless Rim Design
Hookless rim design enhances overall durability, and offers a wider inner rim width without adding extra weight. It also helps to create a more round tire shape providing superior grip and handling as well as added sidewall support when cornering.
