The Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 offers a Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset and Giant Power Pro double sided powermeter as upgrades over the TCR Advanced SL 2.
Giant's TCR Advanced SL range uses the very best composite and construction techniques to create an amazing all round race machine with class leading stiffness to weight ratio. Giant use their in house woven Advanced SL (T800) composite with CNT resin technology and continuous fibre technology to create one of the most responsive framesets available offering an excellent blend of low weight, pedalling stiffness and vertical compliance. Advanced SL frames use an integrated seatmast which minimizes weight and maximises comfort. A full Advanced SL composite fork with an Overdrive 2 keeps weight down and steering ultra precise. Advanced SL models come complete with a RideSense ANT+ speed/cadence sensor (sensor fitted upon request) and use Giant's complete wheelsystems.
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 is designed for all round riding combining low weight, compliance and lateral stiffness courtesy of the Advanced SL composite, MegaDrive downtube and integrated 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.
For 2019, Giant are including their new Power Pro double sided power meter with this model. Power measurement is a great way to help you understand your riding and is relevant for all types of riders. Data is transmitted by Bluetooth and ANT+ and can be used with Giant's App or other third party software. Similar double sided power meters can cost over £1000 and by including this great piece of kit with the bike from new you can reap the rewards of power measurement for a relatively small cost.
The TCR Advanced SL 1's drivetrain is courtesy of Shimano's brilliant Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting components which offer low weight and a sublime gear shift which is superior to mechanical systems. Gearing covers a wide range with 52x36 at the front and 11x28 at the rear.
Giant's excellent SLR 1 42mm wheel system offers a full carbon rim laced into the hub using Dynamic Balanced Lacing spokes which maximize responsiveness and durability. The superlight carbon clincher rim has been developed to provide consistent braking performance no matter what the conditions and have been shown to tolerate much higher braking temperatures than almost any competitor's products and the 42mm deep rim offers a great balance of aero and stability. The SLR1 wheels and Gavia AC tyre are tubeless which offers a superior ride quality and puncture protection over a traditional inner tube setup.
The Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 is a true pro level race weapon and offers an ultra responsive ride for riders looking for all round road performance.
Please note: This bicycle features an integrated seat post which requires cutting to suit the rider's required saddle height. Once cut, adjustment is still possible (typically 20-25mm). We strongly recommend performing this task for you in store.
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.
