When looking for a new bike almost all riders are looking to check all of the boxes: comfort, handling, stiffness, weight, aesthetics, and of course price. When Giant was developing the line of 2017 TCR Advanced models they put all that on the board. We have brought in several models across the lineup to satiate the wants/needs of nearly every rider.
Giant's TCR Lineup For Every Rider
TCR Advanced 2 ($1,650)
Coming in at $1,650, the TCR Advanced 2 is spec'd as good as other bikes almost a $1k more! What does that price get you? For starters a full Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain and a carbon frame with all the trickle-down tech from its pricier brethren. You get Giant's OverDrive tapered head tube and MegaDrive downtube that gives you agility when you stomp on the pedals. This machine is equally at home in a punchy crit or all day adventure through varying road conditions.
TCR Advanced Pro 1 ($3,150)
A true Workhorse the TCR Advanced Pro 1 boast several key upgrades reserved for bikes well above its modest price tag. A full carbon frame and carbon OverDrive sheds the weight and improves stiffness in the front end. You also get a set of full carbon clinchers wrapped in tubeless ready tires. Top that will a full Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain and this bike is ready to race right of the box.
TCR Advanced SL 2-KOM ($4,125)
Taking off where the Pro 1 left off, the SL 2-KOM utilized Giant's Advanced SL carbon fiber layup. It gets the KOM moniker for a reason. Giant's Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in their own composite factory to create the most cutting-edge frames available today. These frames feature the most advanced engineering and construction methods to allow for the lightest and stiffest frames Giant offers. The integrated seatpost further reduces the weight and improves ride compliance. The eye catching flo-red paint of the SL frame is equipped with an Ultegra 11-Speed group, and Giant's own DBL 30mm carbon clinchers that feature a 23mm wide brake track and are tubeless ready.
The 2017 lineup of TCR's offers something for everyone. The compact frame geometry is easily digestible and allows for a comfortable setup. Come by any Bicycle World and let our knowledgeable staff set you up with a test ride.
