 As gravel events got more popular, the bike industry realized that innovative riders were building up their bikes as lightweight performance machines, not ponderous pack mules. Now Giant has released the TCX Advanced SX, giving riders the chance to obtain a lightweight machine for day-long adventure races without all the tedious mucking about in the basement.

The TCX Advanced SX begins with a sturdy frame built with Giant's own Advanced composite carbon fiber. Light weight and high strength were a priority when building the TCX Advanced SX, but smoothness played a big role in development as well. The tapered seat stays and composite D-Fuse seatpost do an excellent job of soaking up rough surfaces and broken pavement, keeping the rider fresher. With a tapered OverDrive steerer tube and carbon fiber fork, the TCX Advanced SX boasts a precise handling quality, especially on rough surfaces. A 12mm thru-axle front hub adds to that handling precision as well. Out back, the rear hub is also a 12mm thru-axle, aiding in power transfer by anchoring the rear triangle better than a plain skewer. The PowerCore press-fit bottom bracket anchors the crankset without power-robbing flex. Internal cable routing and flat-mount brake caliper mounts keeps the TCX Advanced SX looking clean, too. The frame's clearence is wide enough for knobby 700x40c Maxxis Rambler tires; a perfect choice for ugly gravel, jeep doubletrack, broken pavement or even cobblestones.

Simplicity is king in 200+ mile gravel adventures, and that's why Giant chose SRAM's single-chainring Apex 1 components for the TCX Advanced SX. The SRAM Apex 1 rear derailleur features a roller bearing clutch for lightning-quick operation and minimal chain slap in rough conditions. The massive 11-42T SRAM cassette and 30T SRAM X-Sync crankset brings a massive gearing range to the bike while eliminating the extra weight of the front derailleur, extra chainrings, longer chain and second shifter. Cool, huh? The Apex 1 levers also operate the SRAM Apex 1 hydraulic calipers, adding excellent stopping power and lever feedback for safe braking in all conditions, rain or shine. Giant's own 32-spoke alloy PX-2 wheels are ready for miles of terrible surfaces, especially with the previously mentioned Rambler tires. An alloy Connect stem, Connect road handlebar and Contact saddle complete this adventure-ready machine.
