Product Details

Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1 2018 Carbon Road Bike

The Pro 1 version of Giant's classic TCR road bike features a Shimano Ultegra groupset (inc chainset and brakes) and tubeless tyre-shod SLR 1 composite wheels.

  • Shimano's latest 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
  • The Shimano Ultegra Hollowtech crankset saves weight
  • Another upgrade UItegra riders particularly appreciate is that it offers a firmer shift than 105, delivering a quicker downshift onto the smaller ring under pressure
  • Giant SLR 1 WheelSystem wheels weigh just 1,650g and are system built. Why this is good
  • To make the most of these wheels, they now come with tubeless tyres for an even smoother ride and for extra puncture resistance
  • Pro-spec full Advanced Grade Composite fork with OverDrive 2 (inch and a quarter to inch and a half) tapered steerer
  • RideSense ANT+ cadence and speed transmitter - compatible with Ant+ cycle computers and home trainers
  • The Advanced Grade Composite frame delivers an optimal balance of speed, responsiveness and shock-damping comfort
  • Classic road bike geometry (73 degree head and seat tube angles in M and L sizes) for speed and confidence-inspiring handling
  • The Variant Integrated carbon seatpost balances compliance and efficiency for a superior race-tuned ride quality

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.

Here's how Giant describe the TCR Advanced Pro 1 2018

FROM DAILY TRAINING RIDES TO YOUR BIGGEST RACE OF THE YEAR. TOTAL RACE PERFORMANCE, MADE FOR YOUR PODIUM QUEST.

Attack the climb, chase down a break, accelerate out of a corner in the final kilometer. With its Advanced-grade composite frame, which minimizes weight without sacrificing its best-in-class stiffness, the TCR Advanced Pro puts you in position to win. Legendary Compact Road race geometry blends quick, precise handling with aggressive positioning, and the OverDrive 2 front end delivers razor-sharp steering performance. The Variant seatpost helps smooth out the ride, giving you a well-rounded machine that flies from start to finish. Tubeless Ready.
