Product Description

Giant TCR Advanced 2 2017

A full Shimano 105 group (inc chainset and brakes) perfectly complements the Giant handcrafted carbon frame to create a road bike that rivals any for the money.

Giant Advanced Grade Composite Frame
Every Advanced composite frame is hand made by Giant in 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 2 Features

  • 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.
  • The full Shimano 105 2x11 transmission and dual pivot brakes match the frame and fork's smooth, confidence-inspiring performance.
  • 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 tyres.
  • 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.

'Giant TCR Advanced 2 2017
The magic formula for all-around road performance is a precise blend of frame stiffness and riding compliance - all in a lightweight chassis. With its Advanced-grade composite frameset, TCR Advanced delivers unbeatable versatility. The OverDrive steerer system and MegaDrive downtube help you rail the toughest corners at speed and the Variant seatpost is engineered with just enough compliance. The result is pedal-stomping stiffness for sprints and accelerations, plus energy-saving compliance for big days in the saddle.'
