Giant Propel Advanced Pro 2 2018

Award winning (Cycling Plus 5/5 aero ride bike of the year 2015) Propel Advanced Pro upgraded with £1,000-worth of Giant SLR 1 composite aero wheels & tubeless tyres.

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

Or as Cycling Plus put it: 'Not only does it share the aggressive, short wheelbased geometry of the classic TCR; it blends in the noted smoothness of the brilliant endurance-focused Defy in the process.'

Giant Propel key features

  • Weapon of choice of pro team Giant-Alpecin - Tom Dumoulin (Giro D'Italia 2017 winner) et al
  • Giant SLR 1 Aero WheelSystem - designed as a system, not as a collection of separate components - for performance, strength and enhanced acceleration potential. The benefits of system built wheels
  • Retailing on their own at around £1,000 a pair when you add the tubeless tyres, Giant's all new SLR 1 Aero WheelSystem with carbon composite rims weighs in at just 1,700g (per full wheelsystem)
  • The aero rim is 23mm wide and 55mm deep
  • SLR 1 wheels are built using Giant's Dynamic Balanced Lacing system - so spoke tensions balance out as riding forces are applied, resulting in a stiffer, more efficient wheel
  • For an even smoother ride and extra puncture resistance, the wheels are fitted with Giant Gavia SL Tubeless 700x25mm folding tyres - the benefits of tubeless tyres
  • 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 frameset tube to maximise aerodynamic efficiency
  • Giant SpeedControl SL Brakes - the front brake is mounted behind the fork crow, the rear behind the seatstays, to shield them from the wind. The brakes' trailing edges further reduce turbulence
  • The Giant Vector composite seatpost continues the lightweight aerodynamic theme
  • PowerCore - the massively oversized bottom bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86mm-wide bottom bracket to more efficiently convert your pedaling input into speed
  • Asymmetric chainstays reinforce the driveside
  • OverDrive - Giant’s innovative oversized fork steerer-tube design increases front-end stiffness and enhances steering performance. The tapered steerer and oversized bearings (1 1/4 inch top, 1 1/2-inch bottom) boost torsional steering stiffness so you can sprint and corner with supreme precision
  • RideSense ANT+ cadence and speed transmitter - compatible with Ant+ cycle computers and home trainers.
  • Shimano 105 5800 11-speed - 'Shimano's best bang-for-your-buck groupset yet.' road.cc - see review
  • Now even smoother shifting, as soon as you use 105 STI 2x11 levers, you will understand why Shimano 105 is the world's most popular road bike groupset

Giant Advanced Carbon Composite Frameset

  • Every Advanced Pro 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.

Here's how Giant describe the Propel Advanced Pro 2 2018

TAP INTO THE SENSATION OF EXHILIRATING SPEED. FOR CRITERIUMS, ROAD SPRINTS OR TRIATHLONS, THIS IS YOUR AERO ADVANTAGE.

Every aspect of this frame is engineered as a complete system to deliver unbeatable aero road performance. Extensive CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing was used to optimize every frame tube and angle in a process called AeroSystem Shaping technology. The frame is then handcrafted using Advanced-grade composite material to produce a bike that's both stiff and light, with a sharp, responsive ride quality. Purpose-built aero road technologies, including SpeedControl SL brakes and a Vector seatpost further enhance this well-rounded, wind-slicing performer. Tubeless Ready.
