This is Giant's best version of their TCR Advanced Pro series. They left nothing out and held nothing back.

Giant has run many of their finest road machines through the wringer of top-level ProTour racing since the late 90's. The Giant TCR Advanced Pro 0 Disc has been tested at the most demanding levels as well, ensuring performance and reliability for any rider looking for a pure speed machine.

The TCR Advanced Pro 0 Disc is built around a "backbone" built from their Advanced-level Composite carbon fiber. By customizing their own house-made carbon fiber (not from a third-party supplier), Giant is able to tune the weight, strength and ride quality of the TCR's frameset perfectly. The result is a perfectly balanced machine that takes curves with confidence, soaks up impacts without giving up road feel, and ensures flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke. The frame's tube shaping enhances torsional strength as well, with an oversized square-ish downtube, reinforced bottom bracket shell and massive OverDrive2 tapered head tube. The all-carbon Advanced-Grade fork keeps overall weight low as well, and the 1-1.25 by 1-1.5" tapered steerer gives the rider a direct connection to the bike's handling; perfect for a crit racer or Wednesday night hammer-fest rider. The TCR Advanced Pro's fit is aggressive for excellent weight distribution and precise handling. Internal cable routing keeps ther bike looking sleek, while an aperture in the left chainstay allows the installation of a RideSense speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) without the use of clumsy zip-ties.

The component group of the TCR Advanced Pro 0 Disc needs very little introduction: Ultegra 8070 Di2

OK, so that means very little to those of us who don't follow bikes like we do. Suffice it to say, the Shimano components used to built up the Advanced Pro 0 Disc are some of the best out there. Shimano's Ultegra components have been slowly closing the performance gap with their top-tier Dura-Ace group over the last few years. Now the performance differences are very small, with nearly identical shift quality. Instantaneous shifts are possible with minimal rider input. Every. Single. Time. The shift operation of Shimano's Di2 drivetrain is so quick, it even extends the lifespan of the chain. Battery life of a single charge is up to 900 miles, depending on shifting frequency. With the R8070 version of Ultegra Di2, the pro-level performance is still there, but with several updates:

 

  • Improved lever body shape and textured hoods for more comfort
  • Adjustable-reach brake levers accommodate smaller hands
  • Better shift button feedback for use with thick gloves
  • Extra accessory buttons under lever hood peaks for rear shifting from different hand positions
  • Shadow-style rear Di2 derailleur reduces aero drag and improves shifting response with a 30T max rear cog
  • Updated 52/36T semi-compact Ultegra crankset is more aero without reducing rigidity
  • 11-30T Ultegra cassette and Ultegra chain make the other Di2 components run and shift smoothly
  • Flat-mount Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes provide uniform pad wear and improved lever feedback, while heat dispersing fins extend pad life

 

The Ultegra disc brakes aren't just for predictable stopping power in the rain. They also deliver much better lever feedback in everyday riding. Repeated late braking into turns, blundering riding buddies and chaotic traffic are all good reasons to run hydraulic disc brakes on sunny days. Giant supplies the carbon fiber Composite SLR 1 DBL Disc wheelset. They're tubeless-ready, boast a 30mm aero profile, and are a generous 23mm-wide to produce a wide tire footprint. 25mm-wide tubeless Giant Gavia 0 tires are ready to roll without conversion right off the floor. Tubeless tires boast low rolling resistance and can soak up all but the worst puncture-producing debris found on the road.

Even the "furniture" on the TCR Advanced Pro 0 Disc is pretty impressive. A lightweight Composite carbon fiber Variant seatpost holds up a Giant Contact SL saddle, reducing pendular mass that can make a bike feel sluggish while sprinting out of the saddle. A lightweight alloy Giant Contact SL stem and Contact SL road handlebar completes this outstanding road warrior.

A Shimano charging cable is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
