April 2018 - Giant TCR Advanced 2 awarded Bike Of The Year by Cycling Plus!!
The Giant TCR Advanced 2 is a perfect entry point into all round performance bikes and offers a Shimano 105 groupset and Giant PR2 wheels as upgrades over the TCR Advanced 3.
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 2 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 2's componentry is based around Shimano's 105 22 speed groupset which offers its renowned level of performance and dependability. The TCR Advanced 2 is fitted with an 11-28 cassette and a compact 50-34 chainset to give you a great spread of gearing which is suitable for the steepest of climbs. The Giant TCR Advanced 2 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, road riding machine with a race fit then the Giant TCR Advanced 2 is perfect for the job.
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. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
