Product Details

Giant TCR Advanced 1 2019 Road Bike

Giant's long proven classic carbon road bike,with Shimano Ultegra 8000 groupset and tubeless tyres.

Based on the highly rated 2018 modelSee full bike review.

Tubeless Tyres

Previously reserved for Giant's £2K-plus Pro models: every Giant TCR Advanced model rolls on tubeless tyres for extra comfort and fewer punctures. Why tubeless is a good thing.

Shimano Ultegra 8000 groupset

Shimano's Ultegra 8000 STI 2x11 shifters, gear mechs, cranks and cassette are even closer to Dura-Ace level in terms of their smooth, slick and precise performance - whisper it but this analogue drivetrain will have you questioning the need to spend more on Di2.

Also note that this Ultegra groupset comprises not just the gear shifters and mechs. The cranks, cassette and brakes are all Shimano too, to help ensure best possible performance.

Giant Advanced Grade Composite Frame

Every Advanced composite frame is hand made by Giant at their own specialist carbon frame-building facility, using the following process.

  • Blending performance-grade Toray T700 carbon filament and resin with vibration-absorbing particles helps maximise frame strength and rider comfort.
  • 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.

Giant TCR Advanced Features

Composite frameset is engineered to offer minimal weight without sacrificing pedaling stiffness and efficiency.

  • The Advanced Grade Composite frame delivers an optimal balance of speed, responsiveness and shock-damping comfort
  • The lightweight shock-absorbing Advanced Grade Composite carbon fork legs further contribute to the Giant Defy Advanced's responsive, fast-steering, exciting ride
  • The fork's Giant OverDrive Steerer tapers from one and an eighth inch external diameter at the top to inch and a quarter at the crown
  • As well as reinforcing the front end of the bike, oversizing the bottom of the steerer helps eliminate flex-induced brake juddering
  • Classic road bike geometry (73 degree head and seat tube angles) for speed and confidence-inspiring handling
  • The Variant Integrated carbon seatpost balances compliance and efficiency for a superior race-tuned ride quality
  • As well as building their own frames and forks, Giant extrude their own rims to build their own high quality sealed-bearing wheels
  • Giant then equip their wheels with their own front and rear specific 700x25 folding tubeless tyres with sealant
  • Controlling every aspect of designing, engineering and building the wheelset ensures every component works perfectly with its partner to create a more laterally stiff wheel which will take less effort to accelerate faster

Here's how Giant describe the TCR Advanced 1

THE MOST EFFICIENT RACE BIKES HAVE THE PERFECT BALANCE OF LIGHT WEIGHT, STIFFNESS AND SMOOTH COMPLIANCE ON THE ROAD. THE TCR ADVANCED DELIVERS ON ALL THREE, MAKING IT A VERSATILE PERFORMER FOR COMPETITIVE ROAD RIDERS.

The Advanced-grade composite of the TCR Advanced frame manages to shave every gram possible—without sacrificing its pedal-stomping stiffness. The OverDrive steerer system and MegaDrive downtube are engineered for the precise handling so you can rail corners at speed. And the Variant seatpost is engineered for an ideal blend of efficiency and compliance—so you stay fresh until the finish on those big days in the saddle.

  • Advanced-grade carbon composite frame with Variant composite seatpost
  • Advanced-grade carbon composite fork with alloy/composite hybrid OverDrive steerer
  • Shimano Ultegra 11-speed mechanical groupset
  • Giant PR-2 wheelset with Giant Gavia 1 tubeless tyres
