Peak performance to push yourself farther. Superlight and smooth riding, this is the standard for endurance road. Centuries, grand fondos, rough roads and challenging terrain—it's the ultimate machine for your most demanding days in the saddle.
The frame is handcrafted with superlight, professional-grade Advanced SL composite that’s engineered with endurance geometry. Innovative features including flat-mount disc brake integration, 12mm front and rear thru-axles and the vibration-damping D-Fuse integrated seatpost deliver control and compliance. The oversized and tapered OverDrive 2 steerer tube boosts cornering precision. And the MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket produce sharp handling and best-in-class pedaling efficiency.
Specific composite layup and tube shaping, including ultra-thin and flattened seatstays, a low seatstay/seattube junction, and thin, slightly curved fork legs combine for a balanced, compliant ride quality and reduced rider fatigue.
The front triangle is constructed with larger, and therefore fewer, sections of composite material, resulting in lighter weight and greater strength.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Frame features unique internal cable porting for sleek, uncluttered appearance and performance.
Giant’s proprietary “D” shaped integrated seatpost design provides an exceptionally smooth and compliant ride quality, while lowering overall weight significantly.
Frame is engineered with flat-mount disc brake integration for superior braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
Designed to offer unprecedented 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.
All-new 12-millimeter thru-axles front and rear provide superior braking performance and stiffness for precise cornering and overall road control.
