Whatever the race situation, the legendary TCR Advanced SL gives you an advantage. It’s  built on the lightest road frameset ever produced by Giant, and it  boasts an unrivaled stiffness-to-weight ratio for pure speed and efficiency. The Variant integrated seatpost design delivers an improved ride quality for comfort during even the longest races. And its proven Compact Road Design gives it the perfect blend of razor-sharp handling and confident control. From the mountains to the flats, start to finish, TCR Advanced SL is a legendary all-rounder with a long list of race  wins to prove it.

Advanced Composite SL Technology

Giant’s Professional Grade raw carbon material is woven in their own composite factory using their most advanced engineering and construction methods including: Continuous Fiber Technology to add strength while reducing weight; Carbon Nanotube Technology resin to improve impact resistance; and Fusion Process for lighter, stronger frame junctions.

Compact Road Design

Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.

OverDrive 2

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.

Lightweight efficiency

With the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any bike in its class, this  frameset is engineered to give Giant pro road racers superior climbing  efficiency, sprint stiffness and all-rounder capabilities.

Pro Pedigree

Proven  geometry and precise steering stiffness makes this frame a top choice  among pro road racers who have ridden it to victories at the Giro  d’Italia, Tour de France stages and other major races around the world.

Speed and Compliance

The Variant integrated seatpost and Giant WheelSystem with tubeless tires combine for a smooth ride and low rolling resistance.
