WINNING RACE BIKES HAVE JUST THE RIGHT BALANCE OF LIGHT WEIGHT, STIFFNESS AND SMOOTH COMPLIANCE ON THE ROAD. TCR ADVANCED DELIVERS ON ALL THREE AND ADDS UPDATED AERO PERFORMANCE.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
Lightweight composite materials and tubing shapes result is a lively ride quality, explosive acceleration and improved climbing efficiency with greater torsional frame stiffness than key competitor bikes.
This is where the TCR’s most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analysed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles.
A composite fork delivers torsional stiffness for sharp handling and steering precision. And a Giant WheelSystem with tubeless technology allows you to run lower tyre pressures for increased grip and a reduced risk of punctures.

Weight: The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
