Giant’s development work with their factory team in WorldTour racing has produced their most refined version of the TCR so far: The Advanced SL. Conceived as a pure road racing machine, the TCR Advanced SL emphasizes light weight, nimble handing and incredible stiffness when the rider puts everything into the pedals. The frame itself is built from Giant’s professional-grade Advanced SL carbon fiber, boasting the best strength-to-weight ratio of any bike Giant makes. The OverDrive 2 head tube is tapered (1-1/4"-to-1-1/2”) for incredibly agile and responsive handling. A press-fit PowerCore bottom bracket anchors the crankset for flex-free power delivery, especially during uphill charges and all-out sprints. The integrated seat mast not only improved ride quality, but saves 45 grams compared to a carbon fiber seatpost. Internal cable housing keeps the TCR aerodynamically clean, while the aperture in the left chainstay offers a sleek installation point for an ANT+ RideSense speed/cadence sensor (sold separately). The TCR’s fork is also a fully carbon fiber Advanced SL unit, reducing weight further.
Shimano’s latest 11-speed Ultegra components are found throughout the TCR Advanced SL, giving it cutting-edge shifting and long service life. The adjustable-reach Ultegra levers, derailleurs, redesigned 52-36 crankset and cassette all work together seamlessly for long service life and lightning-quick operation. Giant’s own P-SLR1 Scandium alloy wheels reduce rotating weight further on the TCR, and are shod with 23mm P-SLR1 tires for confident grip. The SLR Composite handlebar, OverDrive 2 stem and alloy-railed Fizik Arione R3 saddle complete this world-class racing machine.
