Proven aero performance, sharp yet stable handling and one of the lightest frames in its category – you get it all with Propel Advanced range.

The lightweight, easily adjustable Vector composite seatpost minimises drag and frame technologies including the OverDrive steerer tube and PowerCore bottom bracket deliver sharp handling and pedalling efficiency for the perfect one-two punch at the finish line.

iCycle review:  ‘The Propel is one of those bikes that comes along every so many years that is really special.  In real world testing, we have found this bike descends quicker on club rides than most other bikes in the pack, even those bikes that cost twice as much.  Giant have the ability to research, design and manufacture their framesets featuring innovations that really matter to riders.  The propel is a prime example of how aero bike properties can be married up with innovative frame manufacture, to deliver amazing results to a rider in every situation’.

Giant TCR Advanced 3

Agile, efficient and engineered for all-round performance, the TCR Advanced range provides the total road racing bike.

The magic formula for all-around road performance is a precise blend of frame stiffness and riding compliance – all in a lightweight chassis. With its Advanced-grade composite frameset, TCR Advanced delivers unbeatable versatility. The OverDrive steerer system and MegaDrive downtube help you rail the toughest corners at speed and the Variant seatpost is engineered with just enough compliance. The result is pedal-stomping stiffness for sprints and accelerations, plus energy saving compliance for big days in the saddle

iCycle review: Giant has honed the TCR over some years as the Giant bike enthusiasts will be well aware.  It would seem that Giant now have a TCR, in the form of the TCR Advanced that brings together all of the key attributes the modern rider is looking for in a race orientated bike.  We like the balance between the compliance in the frame, the frame geometry and the how the feel of the bike.  The height of the headtube, the length of wheelbase and the riding position all give the feel of an outright racing bike.  It is maybe an overused phrase these days but, it is hard to find a better bike package for the price if you are looking for a road racer.
