2023 Giant TCR Advanced SL Disc Team Frameset
From the Tour de France to your local KOM, no other road bike in the world does it all better than this legendary winner. Chosen by WorldTour pros like Simon Yates, it’s the ultimate all-rounder for the performance obsessed.
The latest TCR Advanced SL Disc builds on its proven climbing capabilities, boasting its highest stiffness-to-weight ratio ever. It features aero tube shaping in key sections of the frameset for added efficiency. Additional updates include plenty of clearance to fit high-volume tyres up to 32mm, the latest integrated WheelSystem technology, and an aero-engineered Contact SLR composite handlebar to make it even faster against the wind.
Key Performance Factors
Class-leading efficiency: Combining best-in-class stiffness-toweight with strategically placed aero tube shaping, this frameset is engineered for faster climbing, explosive acceleration and unyielding pedalling stiffness for race-winning performance.
Advanced aerodynamics: This is where the TCR’s most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analysed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles.
Total control: Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful stopping power and modulation for added control in variable weather and road conditions. Flat mounts and new thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, while added frame and fork clearance allows for larger diameter tyres up to 32mm.
Advanced SL Composite: Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in the Giant composite factory using the most advanced engineering and construction methods. Continuous fibre Technology adds strength and minimises weight.
Truncated Ellipse Tubing: Strategically engineered airfoil sections in the frame and fork, developed through CFD and windtunnel testing, improve aerodynamic efficiency, reducing wind drag at a wider range of yaw angles compared to traditional teardrop shaped tubes.
