For sharp handling, proven geometry, and super-efficient road performance, it’s hard to beat the feel of the lightweight aluminum TCR SLR. Giant’s world-leading alloy engineering team achieved 20 percent thinner tubing walls for a superlight frame that doesn’t compromise stiffness or strength. Crafted from top-end ALUXX SLR aluminum with proven design features including Giant’s Compact Road geometry and OverDrive 2 tapered steerer tube, it’s light, it’s fast, it’s ready to rip. The Variant seatpost helps smooth out the ride, and our tubeless WheelSystem boosts speed and efficiency while reducing your risk of punctures. It’s a well-rounded machine that flies from start to finish.
Aluxx SLR Aluminum
Formed from premium raw materials in Giant’s own forging facility, this ultra-lightweight proprietary alloy features 20% thinner butted tubing to create best-in-class weight savings.
This proprietary seatpost design offers an optimized balance of lightweight, superior ride-quality and easy adjustment to enhance TCR’s total race performance characteristics.
OverDrive 2 / OverDrive
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
Internal cable routing with fewer, yet larger ports and tool-free bottom bracket guide ensures easy cable installation while minimizing frame weight.
ALUXX SLR Aluminum Technology
This superlight Pro level aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any Giant aluminum frameset. State-of-the-art microscopic grain manipulation and advanced butting allows for 20 percent thinner and lighter tube shapes than ALUXX SL framesets.
Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
Internal Seatpost Clamp
A lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides confident clamping force with clean performance and aesthetics.
This proprietary seatpost design offers an optimized balance of light weight, superior ride quality and simple adjustment to enhance the total race performance of the TCR road range.
