Giant Propel Advanced SL 1 Comp/Charcoal
The aero road choice of Giant pros like marcel kittel. Designed in the wind-tunnel, proven at the Tour de France.
Stiff enough to transfer power to the pedals, forgiving enough to keep you comfortable during long training efforts, and it’s the most aerodynamic frame system ever developed-that’s Propel Advanced SL.
>Lightweight Advanced SL-grade composite frameset
>Aerodynamic shaping throughout including headtube, downtube, seatstays, fork and seattube
>Integrated seatpost for superior aerodynamics and compliance
>Internal cable routing and aero brake system-no detail overlooked

Vikt The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.

Giant Overdrive 2/Overdrive
As the first manufacturer to bring the tapered headtube to market—with the 2006 Glory mountain bike—Giant knows a thing or two about inventing solutions for improved steering precision. The original OverDrive technology resulted in groundbreaking stiffness-to-weight ratios, and the newer OverDrive 2 system on high-performance road and mountain bikes offers even further advantages.
Giant Overdrive 2
Giant’s most advanced fork steerer-tube technology. Oversized headset bearings (1 1/4-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings) and a tapered steerer tube combine for unprecedented steering performance with no additional weight.

>1 ½-inch bottom bearing
>1 1/4 –inch stem

Compared to the already stiff OverDrive system, OverDrive 2 provides up to 30 percent more torsional steering stiffness. This translates into industry-leading steering precision. Whether you’re sprinting for the finish or cornering hard in the most demanding conditions, you can ride with more power and confidence.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer-tube technology. Designed to provide solid front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube provide optimal steering stiffness. Road models feature 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/4-inch bottom bearings, while the mountain version features 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings.
OverDrive provides up to 15 percent more torsional steering stiffness than straight steerer-tube designs. This translates into much more accurate steering input from a rider’s hands, through the handlebar and stem, and down to the front wheel. Whether hammering uphill or carving through a corner, OverDrive transmits input directly to the front wheel for more precise handling.
Giant AeroSystem shaping technology
Through CFD and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
Unrivaled Composite technology
With more than 25 years of experience in carbon fiber engineering, plus a long history of rigorous development and testing with professional athletes, Giant is the industry leader in composite bicycle technology. To meet the needs of high-performance riders, Giant offers two grades: Advanced SL and Advanced Composite. Both feature unique materials, resin formulas and construction techniques.
Giant Advanced SL Composite technology
Giant's Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in our own composite factory to create the most cutting-edge frames available today. These frames feature the most advanced engineering and construction methods:
>Professional-grade grade raw carbon with the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio available today.
>Professional-grade formula with Carbon Nanotube Technology (CNT), a microscopic polymer added to Giant's custom blended resin*. Like miniature buttresses, CNT strengthens the layers of composite. Frames featuring CNT are 14 percent more impact-resistant than those without it.
>Fusion process involves hand weaving the toptube and seattube together, then re-molding the area under heat and high pressure to unify the junction, resulting in a lighter, stronger frame than those with traditional molding.
>Continuos fiber technology manufacturing process allows Giant to construct the front triangle of Advanced SL bicycles* with larger, and therefore fewer, sections of composite material. With fewer pieces and junctions, the frames are up to 100 grams lighter and significantly stronger.
