The Giant TCR Advanced 1 is a true performance bike which was given a 5/5 review by Bike Radar in 2018 being described as the "the best bike possible for the price". The TCR Advanced 1 offers a Shimano Ultegra groupset as an upgrade over the TCR Advanced 2.
Giant's TCR started the compact frame revolution over 15 years ago and almost all manufacturers have now followed suit taking advantage of the weight saving, stiffness and fit benefits given by the sloping top tube design. The TCR was a game changer back then and the latest TCR brings the bike back up to date taking advantage of all the latest technologies whilst retaining the great all round capabilities of this modern classic. Giant's TCR has race geometry and a race fit making it the perfect tool for riders looking for all round performance.
Giant's TCR Advanced 1 uses Advanced grade composite and has an Overdrive Advanced composite bladed fork. This level of carbon composite was formerly only available on higher models but Giant have used their manufacturing might to bring this quality of carbon to a much lower price point. Advanced models feature a RideSense ready chainstay which accepts Giant's concealed ANT+ speed/cadence sensor.
Giant's TCR is designed for all round riding combining low weight, compliance and lateral stiffness courtesy of the Advanced composite, MegaDrive downtube and Variant seatpost. It's perfect for riders who ride on varied terrain and want a responsive, fun ride with excellent handling and efficient power transfer. Team Sunweb-Giant rider Tom Dumoulin used his TCR Advanced SL to great effect by taking overall victory in the 2017 Giro.
The TCR Advanced 1's componentry is based around Shimano's all new Ultegra 22 speed groupset which has been revised for 2018 offering many developments from the Dura Ace groupset and revised ergonomics. The TCR Advanced 1 is fitted with an 11-30 cassette and a compact 52-36 chainset to give you a great spread of gearing which is perfect for varied terrain. The Giant TCR Advanced 1 features tubeless wheels and tyres for a superior ride quality and better puncture protection when compared to a traditional inner tube setup.
If you want a complete, all round, performance road riding machine with a race fit then the Giant TCR Advanced 1 is the best you can get at this pricepoint.
Please note: This model features tubeless ready wheels and tyres which offer a superior ride and less rolling resistance than traditional innertubes. This system requires tyre sealant to function correctly and this will be fitted in our workshop prior to despatch. The nature of this sealant means that the tyre may not be fully sealed until it has been ridden a short distance and therefore the bicycle may arrive with reduced pressure in the tyres. Please check the bicycle's tyres are inflated to the recommended pressure before cycling. Should you wish for the bicycle to be supplied with inner tubes fitted rather being set up tubeless please contact us after placing your order.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.
