Giant TCR Advanced SL 0 review

Josh CroxtonJun 2020

The latest race bike from Giant claims to offer class-leading aerodynamics, weight and stiffness. We take a look at how that translates to real-world riding

Pros
  • Weight (sub 7kg, size large)

  • It holds speed over flat and rolling ground well

  • Power transfer is similar to a dedicated aero bike

Cons
  • Handling confidence takes time to build

  • The integrated seatpost makes flying with the TCR difficult, but not impossible

  • No Shimano builds available at Advanced SL level
