Details

Giant's TCR Advanced 1 makes the uphills and downhills equally fun. It boasts Giant's renowned composite construction for a feathery frame that delivers pro-level responsiveness and unprecedented efficiency. The full composite fork with a tapered OverDrive 2 steerer delivers surgical steering precision, for the fastest, tightest lines and an ethereal ride. That world-class ride is complemented by Shimano's incredible Ultegra group for lightning-quick gear selection, with your power delivered by an Ultegra crankset. To top it all off, Giant's Contact bar and stem combo, fast-rolling Giant P-SL0 wheels, and Fizik saddle complete this searing road rocket.

The technology behind Giant's TCR Advanced.

Giant's TCR Advanced features high-quality composite formed into a frame through cutting-edge construction techniques. Raw T-700 composite is carefully woven in Giant's own composite factory, then handcrafted into framesets utilizing Giant's advanced monocoque construction technique. This produces a light, stiff and compliant frameset worthy of the Giant TCR name.

In addition to the superior composite construction, Giant's Advanced frames boast the following technologies to make your ride better than ever!

1. Vector seatpost - in addition to saving weight, Giant's Vector seatpost improves aerodynamics and offers 2 offset options (10mm and 23mm).

2. Custom tubing - Giant layers over 500 individual, hand-cut composite swatches to fine tune each frame's ride quality. This results in maximum function with wonderful all-day comfort.

3. Overdrive 2 - Giant's headtube and fork steerer tapers from 1 1/4-inch at the the top to 1 1/2-inch at the bottom for pinpoint steering, lateral stability and superb torsional stiffness.

4. Less is More - Giant engineers use Finite Element Analysis so every inch of their TCR frames have exactly the perfect amount of composite for the lightest weight with the highest function.

5. Powercore - through the use of an integrated 86mm wide bottom bracket and asymmetrical chainstays, the TCR Advanced features fantastic pedaling stiffness so every watt of effort rockets you forward.

Giant’s RideSense transmitter sends speed and cadence information to any ANT+ compatible computer. The transmitter is seamlessly integrated into the chainstay, though it can be easily removed.

Giant’s OverDrive 2 delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug
