The 2016 handcrafted SL-grade composite TCR Advanced SL 2 is the ultimate all-round race bike. Take your riding to the next level, leave your friends in the dust and crush the competition with this podium finisher.
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.

Frame & Fork
At the core of the TCR SL is one of the most advanced composite frames on the market. Giant’s Advanced SL-Grade composite frame only uses pro grade raw carbon fibres with the best 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 that don’t feature the resin.
Engineers graft the top and seat tubes together using a complex remoulding process called Fusion Process. This provides stronger and lighter frame junctions. A conscious choice to use larger fibre sheets on the frame means fewer pieces are needed, shaving extra grams off 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 2 comes with a full composite fork and OverDrive 2 tapered steerer.
Matching the exquisite handcrafted SL-grade frame is the performance level Shimano Ultegra 11 speed drivetrain with mid compact cranks, including brakes. Crisp shifting and reliable precision from the lightweight package is the ideal setup for road racing.
Giant’s SLR 1 composite wheels are especially adept at climbing where the lightweight rims come into their own. The stiff carbon rim will also improve acceleration. These rims are 160g lighter than Giant’s SL 1 version.
Quality finishing touches like the SL alloy stem (with Ti bolts) and bars shed weight and round the TCR off well.
