Take your training and racing to the next level with the 2016 Giant TCR Advanced SL 1. Created from a handcrafted SL-grade composite frame the TCR is the ultimate all-round race bike.
For 2016 the all-new TCR Advanced SL is the lightest road frameset Giant has ever produced, with a claimed stiffness-to-weight ratio no other road bike on the market can match.
You can buy the swift Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 through a 0% interest Tredz Finance package.
Frame & Fork
Giant are master composite frame builders. Key to the ride characteristics and race level performance of the TCR SL is an Advanced SL-Grade composite frame. Only pro grade raw carbon fibres are used as they have the best stiffness to weight ratio. Pro grade resin with Carbon Nanotube Technology (CNT) strengthens the frame with a 14% increase in impact resistance when compared to frames that do not contain this resin.
A complex remoulding process called Fusion Process creates stronger and lighter frame junctions as the top and seat tubes are grafted together. By using larger fibre sheets the frame is constructed using fewer pieces which helps to shave excess grams from the frame.
For 2016 the integrated Varient composite seatpost reduces weight and has been aero designed for minimal air turbulence. A slight deflection in the mast improves your comfort on longer races.
To win a road bike must have buckets of lateral and torsional stiffness up-front. The Advanced SL 1 comes with a full composite fork and OverDrive 2 tapered steerer.
Equipped is the pro level Shimano Ultegra Di2 11 speed drivetrain with mid compact cranks, including brakes. Di2 offers ultra fast and precise shifting to give you the edge you need in those critical moments. Additional shift buttons can be positioned where you want them.
Giant’s SLR 0 wheelsystem is the lightest that the brand do. You save over 90g compared to the SLR 1 wheels for flying up the climbs and massive acceleration.
Rounding off the TCR is are Giant Contact SLR carbon composite bars and stem (with Ti bolts) further shaving weight.
