Product Details

Giant Propel Advanced 2 Disc 2019 Road Bike

Speed is the name of the game, this is the Shimano 105 2x11 STI equipped version of Giant's Propel aero road bike.

This aero road bike adds convincing evidence to the case that if you want to ride as fast as possible, reducing the bike's aerodynamic drag is even more important than reducing its weight.

Add to that the comfort of knowing you have the advanced stopping power of the Shimano 105, hydraulic disc brakes for more efficient braking and again for speed being able to brake later giving a further advantage!

Thanks to Giant's unmatched experience fabricating carbon fibre bicycle frames, the Propel Advanced 2 Disc offers noticeable aero advantage while still tipping the scale at a respectable light weight

Tubeless tyres
Previously reserved for their £2K-plus Pro models, Giant believe so much in the benefits of going tubeless (such as a smoother ride and fewer flats) they have introduced tubeless tyres to most of their £1,000-plus bikes.

Aero Road Bikes
As you can guess from the name, an aero road bike is optimised to minimise speed-robbing air turbulence and thus maximise its speed potential.

Crucially, unlike a dedicated aerodynamic time trial bike, a Giant Propel aero road bike handles fine in cross winds, so can be used as a general purpose road bike, be it for training, sportives, competition, or just to enjoy the blast of riding a precision-made lightweight carbon machine with superb speed potential.

Sharing key frame design features of the Propel bikes ridden by Team Giant-Alpecin, this bike is a strong contender for 'fastest road bike for the money'.

Blistering speed potential aside, the quality that has most impressed riders about the Giant Propel Advanced's ride quality is the level of comfort, previously unheard of in an aero road bike.

Giant Propel key features

  • Shares key design features of the bikes ridden by the Giant-Alpecin pro team.
  • Their mastery of carbon frame lay-up and design enables Giant to introduce a level of comfort, previously unheard of from an aero road bike.
  • AeroSystem Shaping Technology - data compiled from Computational Fluid Dynamics research and wind-tunnel tests was used by Giant's engineer's to optimize the shape of every Advanced Grade Composite Propel frameset tube to maximise aerodynamic efficiency.
  • Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brake offers powerful braking and sleek design
  • The Giant Vector composite seatpost continues the aerodynamic theme.
  • OverDrive - Giant’s tapered oversized fork steerer-tube design increases front-end stiffness and enhances steering performance.
  • Giant Advanced Carbon Composite Frameset

    • Every Advanced frameset is fabricated in-house by Giant, from its raw performance-grade Toray T-700 carbon filament to its final lacquered finish, to create a stiffer, lighter weight and more compliant ride.
    • Blending Toray T700 carbon filament and resin with vibration-absorbing particles helps maximise rider comfort and frame strength (hence the lifetime guarantee).
    • Modified Monocoque Construction: the front triangle is assembled and moulded as one continuous piece.
    • The main frame is then joined to the rear chainstays and seatstays in a secondary process.
    • This process eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.

    AeroSystem Shaping, a result of CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing, optimizes aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. The truncated ellipse airfoil tube shapes and Contact SL Aero cockpit help produce the best overall aero performance.

    Here's how Giant describe their Propel Advanced 2 Disc

    ON THE ATTACK, IN A SPRINT, OR CORNERING AT SPEED. AERO EFFICIENCY MEETS TOTAL CONTROL IN THIS DISC-BRAKE SOLO FLYER. ENGINEERED WITH AEROSYSTEM SHAPING TECHNOLOGY, THE INTEGRATED FRAMESET IS PROVEN FASTER AT A VARIETY OF WIND ANGLES.

    This aero road bike minimizes drag so you can accelerate and sprint faster. It also introduces full disc-brake integration for more confidence and control in all types of weather and conditions. Engineered with AeroSystem Shaping technology and Advanced-grade composite, it delivers proven aero performance and one of the lightest frames in its category. New integrated disc brake technology includes flat-mount calipers and thru-axles for wheel stiffness and streamlined performance. The lightweight, easily adjustable Vector composite seatpost further minimizes drag. It all adds up to a race-ready machine that helps you leave the competition behind.

    • Advanced-grade carbon composite frame
    • Advanced-grade carbon composite fork with alloy/composite hybrid OverDrive steerer
    • Shimano 105 11-speed mechanical componentry
    • Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brakes
    • Giant P-A2 Aero wheelset with Giant Gavia Race 1 tubeless tyres
