Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
