Description

This Giant TCR Advanced SL 2 2020 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

The Giant TCR Advanced SL 2 offers an Advanced SL composite frame and fork as upgrades over the Advanced Pro models.

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.

The TCR Advanced SL 2's componentry is based around Shimano's excellent Ultegra 22 speed groupset which offers many developments from the Dura Ace groupset and great ergonomics. The TCR Advanced SL 2 is fitted with an 11-30 cassette and a compact 52-36 chainset to give you a great spread of gearing which is suitable for both fast flat riding and steeper climbs too.

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 Cadex Races tyre are tubeless which offers a superior ride quality and puncture protection over a traditional inner tube setup.

The Giant TCR Advanced SL 2 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 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. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.

Sizing information is provided as a general guide only. This is based on the average rider riding the bicycle in the style for which it is intended. This takes no account of a rider's personal proportions, physique, flexibility and biomechanics. If your height places you on, or near, a bicycle size step then we recommend you consider both sizes. All bicycles offer a range of handlebar and saddle adjustment which will enable you to fine tune your riding position once the correct size has been established. If you are unsure on sizing, we strongly recommend you visit our store so we can assist you. Pedal On offers advice and information on sizing in good faith, the final decision and responsibility on which size to purchase is yours.
