Engineered to climb, corner and descend with an unbeatable stiffness-to-weight ratio, this ultra-efficient race machine is the choice of top pros including Giro d'Italia championTom Dumoulin of Team Sunweb. A legendary pro road machine, the TCR Advanced SL does it all and does it faster.
The TCR Advanced SL has earned its reputation as the ultimate all-around race bike. This is the lightest road frameset ever produced by Giant, and it boasts the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any road bike on the market. The new Variant integrated seatpost delivers an improved ride quality for more comfort on the longest, hardest rides, and the Advanced SL-grade composite frame makes the most of its proven Compact Road Design.
Giant’s Professional Grade raw 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.
A completely redesigned TCR Advanced SL frame optimizes every tube shape to shave weight, maintain stiffness and improve ride-quality.
Complete composite construction and a minimalistic design shave weight while increasing stiffness. The redesigned OverDrive 2 steerer tube positions the lower bearing higher in the headtube, resulting in a more efficient use of material and improved transfer of force to the frame.
A massive rectangular downtube forms the link between the oversized OverDrive 2 system and the PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered, rectangular shape yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness while minimizing weight.
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.
Specifically engineered for the needs of competitive road racers, Variant’s refined shape and integrated design result in a ride quality that perfectly balances compliance and efficiency.
Giant’s hollow composite frame dropouts save weight over both aluminum and solid composite dropout designs without sacrificing strength or stiffness.
All-new internal cable routing with fewer, yet larger ports and tool-free bottom bracket guide, ensures easy cable installation while minimizing frame weight.
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing, Giant’s all-new SLR WheelSystem offers the highest lateral and transmission stiffness-to-weight ratio of any competitor—helping the TCR Advanced SL deliver unbeatable efficiency.
