Giant TCR Advanced Pro Disc 2 Road Bike 2022
Climb, corner, and descend with speed and efficiency with the Giant TCR Advanced Pro Disc 2 Road Bike. From the mountains to the flats, in all types of conditions, this lightweight composite road racer takes you to the next level.
Key Performance Factors of the Giant TCR Advanced Pro Disc 2
- Class-leading efficiency
With an outstanding stiffness-to-weight ratio and updated aero tube shaping, the Giant TCR Advanced Pro Disc 2’s frameset is engineered for superior climbing capabilities, aerodynamic efficiency and sprint stiffness for race-winning performance.
- Advanced aerodynamics
This is where the Giant TCR Advanced Pro Disc 2 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 Composite Technology
Giant’s High Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in or own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and moulded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
- Overdrive 2
The most advanced steerer tube technology in today’s Giant bikes. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
- Compact Road Design
Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
- Tubeless System
Fewer flat tyres. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
- Hookless Rim Design
Hookless rim design enhances overall durability, offers a wider inner rim width without adding extra weight and also helps create a more round tire shape providing superior grip and handling as well as added sidewall support when cornering. Additionally, without the rim hook to “push” the tire bead inward, hookless rim design offers a more seamless airflow between the tire and the sidewall of the rim, resulting in less drag and improved aero performance when compared to standard hook-type rims.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedalling stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimetre wide bottom-bracket design (92-millimetre wide for off-road bikes). Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
- Ridesense Ready
This frame comes prepared to accept the Giant RideSense sensor and accompanying hardware.
- Variant seatpot
This proprietary seatpost design offers an optimised balance of light weight, superior ride quality and simple adjustment to enhance the total race performance of the TCR road range.
