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.
Advanced Composite Technology
Cyclocross Specific Tubing
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was used to create tube shapes that enhance the performance and ride quality for cyclocross racing including a flattened and smoothed toptube shape for easier shouldering.
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.
Internal Cable Routing
Integrated ports and a tool-free bottom bracket guide in the frameset make cable installation easier. The internal routing of cables saves weight and creates a cleaner look and performance.
Most TCX Advanced Pro models come with a new D-Fuse SLR seatpost that’s 20 percent more compliant than the existing D-Fuse SL.
Invisible Seatpost Clamp
New frame design allows you to switch from the proprietary D-Fuse seatpost to a standard round 30.9mm seatpost. This enables riders to choose any type of seatpost, including a dropper seatpost, depending on riding style and terrain.
Modified Monocoque Construction
Eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet (found on heavier framesets) to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.
The frame and fork are engineered with flat-mount disc-brake technology for powerful, consistent braking performance in all conditions. New front (12x100mm) and rear (12x142mm) thru-axles boost stiffness and steering precision.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86.5mm wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Giant Tubeless System
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing, an all-new composite WheelSystem and tubeless tires (up to 45mm) deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
