The TCX Advanced SX is so much more than a cyclocross bike with wider tires. It was meant for longer adventures in the rugged wilderness...

Starting with a proven platform is always a good idea. Giant's own Advanced-grade Composite carbon fiber is used throughout the frame and fork of the TCX Advanced SX, giving it incredibly low weight and impressive pedaling response. With shaped frame tubes and a strategic layup schedule, the carbon fiber used in the TCX Advanced frameset will help soak up potholes, gravel washboard surfaces and railway crossings. The tapered OverDrive head tube/steerer tube helps keep the bike pointed where you want it, even when the road you're on is barely worthy of the name. 12mm thru-axles front and rear improve torsional strength even further. A press-fit PowerCore bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery, even during uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. There's room for wide tires (up to 45c) and whatever mud you've collected on your exploits. Internal cable routing keeps the TCX Advanced SX looking clean and sleek. Flat-mount brake caliper mounts improve brake feel and reduce overall weight, too.

While cyclocross bicycles are geared for short-intense efforts, the TCX Advanced SX is equipped with SRAM's 11-speed Apex 1 drivetrain featuring a massive 11-42T cassette. Yes, that's a huge pie-plate for attacking challenging grades! Up front, Giant kept things simple with a 40T single-ring SRAM crankset, reducing weight and complexity further. A SRAM Apex 1 rear derailleur and SRAM Apex 1 dual-control levers make gear changes precise and reliable.

The rolling stock on the TCX Advanced SX is ready for adventure: Tubeless-ready alloy PX-2 wheels and tubeless-ready 700x40c Maxxis Rambler tires. That combination will give you easy acceleration, a smooth feel and buckets of grip on all manner of fire roads and jeep doubletrack. SRAM Apex hydraulic disc brakes bring confident stopping power and excellent lever feedback to the TCX Advanced SX. Giant's engineers got clever with a shaped Composite D-Fuse seatpost, adding to the bike's compliace over terrible surfaces without mechanical joints or suspension. A Contact Neutral saddle, alloy Connect stem and alloy Connect XR road handlebars complete this gravel challenger.
