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.
Advanced Composite Fork
The new Advanced-grade composite fork features a symmetric design and aero shaping. The design makes it lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic.
A Giant Contact aluminum handlebar provides a comfortable grip, outstanding ergonomics and minimal weight.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal 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.
Giant Tubeless System
Updated Giant tubeless wheelset and tires for improved comfort, efficiency and safety right out of the box.
