Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver the aerodynamic performance that Olympic triathlon champion Kristian Blummenfelt demands.
Aerosystem Shaping Technology
Vector Integrated Seatpost
Designed as a key performance factor in the overall frameset, the integrated seatpost saves up to 45 grams compared to standard composite posts, while improving aerodynamics and adding road-smoothing compliance.
Limited Edition Graphics
Created for Tokyo Olympics champion Kristian Blummenfelt with a shippo pattern design inspired by Japanese art and fashion. Overlapping circles and shapes symbolize harmony and happiness, and the five colors convey motion and speed in the pursuit of victory.
Giant’s most advanced steerer tube technology offers unprecedented steering precision. Oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and a tapered steerer tube produce superior front-end stiffness.
Advanced SL Composite Frame
Giant's Professional Grade carbon material is woven in our own composite factory using a proprietary resin formula and our most advanced engineering and construction methods including: Continuous Fiber Technology, CNT Technology and Fusion Process.
Internal Cable Routing
Frame/handlebar/stem feature unique cable porting for sleek, non-cluttered appearance and performance.
The frame and fork are engineered specifically for flat-mount disc-brakes, including front and rear 12mm thru-axles for reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
Contact SLR Bar/Stem
Composite integrated handlebar-and-stem unit improves aero performance with wind-tunnel shaped airfoil design and internal cable routing.
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.
