The magic formula for all-around road performance is a precise blend of frame stiffness and riding compliance—all in a lightweight chassis. With its Advanced-grade composite frameset, TCR Advanced delivers unbeatable versatility. The OverDrive steerer system and MegaDrive downtube help you rail the toughest corners at speed, and the Variant seatpost is engineered with just enough compliance. The result is pedal-stomping stiffness for sprints and accelerations, plus energy-saving compliance for big days in the saddle.
High Performance Grade raw carbon fiber and Giant’s proprietary resin formula is used to
produce custom composite material in our own composite factory that is extremely lightweight,
stiff and compliant.
An Advanced-grade composite fork with an OverDrive tapered hybrid steerer tube constructed for excellent handling and ride-quality.
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.
A massive rectangular downtube forms the link between the oversized OverDrive system and the PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered, rectangular shape yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness while minimizing weight.
This proprietary seatpost design offers an optimized balance of lightweight, superior ride-quality and easy adjustment to enhance TCR’s total race performance characteristics.
A lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides confident clamping force with clean performance and aesthetics.
All-new internal cable routing with fewer, yet larger ports and tool-free bottom bracket guide, ensures easy cable installation while minimizing frame weight.
The TCR Advanced frame optimizes every tube shape to shave weight, maintain stiffness and improve ride-quality.
