When every second counts, you need an aero road race bike that’s been proven in the pro peloton. The Giant Propel Advanced SL 2 is the pinnacle of what advanced frame engineering can deliver. A killer on the sprints with an exquisite ride quality overall.
Team Giant-Alpecin riders Marcel Kittle and John Degenkolb have both won sprints in le Tour de France and in other prestigious races. Third party wind tunnel test show the Propel is more aero from every yaw angle compared to leading competitors. This translates into savings of 12-36 seconds over a distance of 40km at 40kph against other key aero bikes.
You can buy the class leading Giant Propel Advanced SL 2 through a 0% interest Tredz Finance package.
You’re getting one of the most advanced composite frames around. Giant’s Advanced SL-Grade composite frame uses only pro grade raw carbon fibres with the ultimate stiffness to weight ratio. Pro grade resin with Carbon Nanotube technology (CNT) strengthens the frame with a 14% increase in impact resistance, compared to frames without it.
Both the top and seat tubes are grafted together using a complex remoulding process called Fusion Process for stronger and lighter frame junctions. Large fibre sheets are chosen which mean fewer pieces are needed to shave extra weight off the frame.
Also reducing weight the integrated Vector seatmast which has been aero designed to minimal air turbulence. Slight deflection in the mast improves your comfort on longer races.
The Propel Advanced SL 2 is a race ready aero road bike with a frame that’s designed and refined with CFD and wind tunnel data. Tube profiles are aero optimised for explosive speed.
All these features combine into a frame which is up to 100g lighter and significantly stronger than Giant’s Advanced frames.
Down low is the rock solid PowerCore bottom bracket area. This oversized junction will not budge, even when you’re putting the power down. Upfront front is an OverDrive 2 steerer and full composite (advanced grade) carbon fork for ultimate stiffness and knife edge steering.
Equipped is the pro level Shimano Ultegra 11 speed groupset with mid compact cranks. Aero shaped handlebars help you slip through the air and a carbon stem with Ti bolts are essential to shaving off extra grams.
Giant’s SLR 1 Aero wheelsystem feature a deep 55mm rim profile helps you slice through wind in an extremely lightweight carbon composite rim. The tyres are specifically made for these wheels. These wheels are 160g lighter than the SL version.
The Advanced SL 2 comes with RideSense, a chainstay integrated wireless data transmitter. This removable transmitter sends wheel speed and cadence information directly to any ANT+ compatible computer.
