Fully-loaded spec for Giant’s racing legend and our Performance Bike of the Year

2021 Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1 Disc review: detail-driven and race-ready - CyclingTips

Dave Rome

There's a whole lot of value (and plenty to love) in this mid-tier racer.

  • Well-rounded attitude and ride quality, low weight, simple servicing, included power meter, wheelset quality, new Fleet saddle, a lot of bike for the money.

  • Reach (including stock stem) on the long side, some flex in front-centre of frame, compatibility issues of hookless rims, thru-axle handle rattles, press-fit bottom bracket (although Giant do theirs with great tolerances).

Vern Pitt

We tested out the Ultegra equipped TCR Advanced Pro Disc 1, and held it in higher regard than the pricier TCR SL

  • Lighter than much of the competition

  • Great value wheelset

  • Excellent handling

  • External cable routing

  • Lack of aftermarket stems

  • Saddle may not be for everyone

Giant TCR Advanced SL 0 review

Josh Croxton

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

  • Weight (sub 7kg, size large)

  • It holds speed over flat and rolling ground well

  • Power transfer is similar to a dedicated aero bike

  • 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
