Every aspect of this frame is engineered as a complete system to deliver unbeatable aero road performance. Extensive CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing was used to optimize every frame tube and angle in a process called AeroSystem Shaping technology. The frame is then handcrafted using Advanced-grade composite material to produce a bike that’s both stiff and light, with a sharp, responsive ride quality. Purpose-built aero road technologies, including SpeedControl SL brakes and a Vector seatpost further enhance this well-rounded, wind-slicing performer.
Through CFD and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
MODIFIED MONOCOQUE CONSTRUCTION
Eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet (found on heavier framesets) to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.
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
Frame features unique internal cable porting for sleek, uncluttered appearance and performance.
Advanced-Grade Composite Fork
A fork and steerer tube constructed entirely from Giant’s Advanced-grade composite for lightweight and superior ride quality and steering precision.
This full-composite, lightweight and highly aerodynamic seatpost is engineered specifically for the unyielding demands of the performance road rider.
Giant’s chainstay-integrated, wireless data transmitter. The fully integrated, removable transmitter sends wheel speed and cadence information directly to an ANT+ compatible computer.
SPEED CONTROL SL BRAKES
This proprietary braking system offers powerful, aerodynamic stopping power. A composite reverse-position front brake and seatstay-mounted rear brake are hidden from the wind. The system also features strategic trailing edges that further improve aerodynamics.
