For 2021, Giant’s TCR Advanced SL is a legend reborn. Boasting class-leading efficiency and unrivalled aero advantage, a bike that has been at the leading edge of road racing innovation is back for the ultimate performance obsessed rider.From materials, to tube shapes, to cutting-edge engineering and production, The TCR Advanced SL 0 Disc is more aerodynamic and efficient than ever before. Kitted out with state of the art Cadex components, the TCR Advanced SL 0 Disc has been updated and improved in every single aspect of road racing performance.Boasting a previously unobtainable stiffness-to-weight ratio for faster climbing and sprinting, plus new aerodynamic gains for all-around efficiency, it’s not hard to see why it’s the number one choice of CCC Team WorldTour racers like Greg Van Avermaet on challenging road courses that demand uncompromised performance in the pursuit of victory.New aerodynamic tube shaping on the headtube, downtube and fork makes it a killer on breakaways, sprints and solo chase efforts. The new TCR Advanced SL Disc also builds on its proven climbing capabilities, boasting the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio ever seen in a TCR.That’s not all, additional key updates include added clearance in the frame and fork to fit larger diameter tyres of up to 32mm, the latest integrated WheelSystem technology, and a new aero-engineered Contact SLR composite handlebar to make it even faster against the wind.Class-leading efficiency - With the highest pedalling stiffness-to-weight ratio of any bike in its class and updated aero tube shaping, this frameset is engineered to give Giant pro road racers superior climbing capabilities, aerodynamic efficiency and sprint stiffness for race-winning performance.Advanced aerodynamics - 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 yawangles. The result is a TCR that’s faster than ever in sprints and solo situations.Total control - Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful stopping power and modulation for added control in variable weather and road conditions. Flat mounts and new thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, while added frame and fork clearance allows for larger diameter tyres up 32mm.
