Elbow-to-elbow battles for position. Screaming spectators. Sprints for victory. This pro-level cyclocross bike has seen it all and has been on pro podiums at the highest level. With a lightweight composite frameset and integrated components, it’s a champ in all conditions.
Key Performance Factors
Light and agile
Advanced-grade composite frame offers a perfect balance of light weight for climbing and accelerating, plus stiffness for precise handling on rough cyclocross terrain.
Integrated disc brake technology with flat mounts and thru-axle hubs, combined with tubeless ready Giant WheelSystem, delivers added control in variable conditions and all types of weather.
Smooth ride quality
D-shaped composite seatpost reduces shocks and vibrations, minimizing fatigue so you can stay strong to the finish.
When you’re launching an attack, chasing the break or railing turns in sketchy cyclocross conditions, every advantage counts. Pros settle for nothing less than perfection, and this is the machine that meets their demands. The TCX Advanced Pro features a superlight Advanced-grade composite frame that’s handcrafted with race-proven geometry and asymmetrical chainstays for optimal power transfer. The innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost, first pioneered for this very bike, adds compliance without adding weight, so you can pedal smoothly no matter how rough the course. Other innovations include a lightweight composite WheelSystem and tubeless tires right out of the box, flat-mount disc brakes, and a 12mm front and rear thru-axle for total control cornering, sprinting or climbing in all conditions.
The proprietary D-shaped composite seatpost dampens vibration—resulting in a smooth, compliant ride.
Internal Seatpost Clamp
Lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides clean, confident clamping power where it is needed most.
Cyclocross Specific Tubing
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was used to create tube shapes that enhance the performance and ride quality for cyclocross racing including a flattened and smoothed toptube shape for easier shouldering.
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.
Modified Monocoque Construction
Eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet (found on heavier framesets) to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.
Frame is engineered with flat-mount disc-brake integration for superior braking performance in all types of on- or off-road conditions.
All-new 12mm front and 12mm rear thru-axles provide superior braking performance and stiffness for precise cornering and overall control.
Techs & Features
Advanced Composite Technology
Giant’s 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 of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
Internal Seatpost Clamp
A lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides confident clamping force with clean performance and aesthetics.
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.
Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
