It's hard to call the FastRoad Advanced 1 a hybrid. It performs better than many road bikes!

The FastRoad Advanced 1 is a "road hybrid" in the best sense of the phrase. Giant set out to build a bicycle that would ride like a road bike and be as comfortable and as stable as a classic hybrid. It took an innovative approach to the frame material with their proprietary Advanced Composite carbon fiber, giving the FastRoad a more compliant feel than a hard-core carbon fiber racer. Lightness and performance are still to be found, especially on steep ascents and rough pavement. The flattened top tube, long wheelbase and upright fit also contribute to the FastRoad's smoother feel and comfortable character. Handling is enhanced by the tapered OverDrive head tube/steerer tube interface, bringing a more precise feel in fast turns and descents. The tapered steerer of the Composite carbon fiber fork also eliminates a rubbery feel under hard braking, boosting rider confidence during sudden stopping maneuvers. Internal cable routing adds a sleek look to the FastRoad Advanced 1, while an aperture in the left chainstay for a RideSense speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) eliminates the need for clumsy zip-ties. The D-Fuse Composite seatpost boasts extra compliance to help with bad pavement, potholes and railway crossings.

Yes, all this sounds like a road bike, doesn't it. Just more practical. There's more...

The FastRoad Advanced 1 is equipped with Shimano's excellent 11-speed 105 derailleurs normally found on performance road bicycles. Shifting under load won't be a problem, especially when faced with roller-coaster terrain! Shimano's RS700 RapidFire shifters, 50/34T alloy compact crankset and 11-32T cassette bring lightning-quick operation and long service life to the FastRoad Advanced 1. The alloy PR-2 wheels are tubeless-ready and are shod with tubeless-ready 700x28c Gavia AC 1 tires, bringing easy acceleration and confident grip. TRP supplies the hydraulic disc brakes, delivering excellent stopping power and lever feedback in all conditions, wet or dry.  The aforementioned D-Fuse Composite seatpost is topped with a Giant Contact Neutral saddle, while an alloy OverDrive Connect stem, alloy Connect handlebar and alloy bar-ends complete this lightweight machine.

Yes, it all sounds like the best version of a road bike and a hybrid. Now, go ride one!
