Giant TCR Advanced Pro 2 2018

The Pro 2 version of Giant's classic TCR road bike features a near-full Shimano 105 groupset (inc chainset and brakes) and tubeless tyre-shod SLR 1 composite wheels.

  • Advanced Pro means this Giant TCR boasts a full carbon composite frame and fork
  • Near £1,000-worth of Giant's lighter weight SLR 1 composite wheels
  • To make the most of these wheels, they now come with tubeless tyres for an even smoother ride and for extra puncture resistance
  • The near-full (everything but the chain) Shimano 105 groupset guarantees smooth 2x11 gear shifts and confidence inspiring brake performance
  • 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 2 2018
