WORLD CUP PEDIGREE, CUTTING EDGE INNOVATION. FOR FIERCE CX BATTLES IN THE DIRT, MUD OR SNOW, THIS IS YOUR WINNING MOVE.

World Cup champion Lars van der Haar demands the best. Every little advantage counts when you’re gunning for the holeshot in the most challenging cyclocross conditions. TCX Advanced Pro features a superlight sub 1050-gram Advanced grade composite frame that’s handcrafted with race proven geometry and asymmetrical chainstays for optimal power transfer. The innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost adds compliance without adding weight. The OverDrive 2 steerer tube system delivers pinpoint steering performance. Other innovations include disc brakes and a 15mm front /12mm rear thru-axle design to deliver superior control.

Tech Info:

OVERDRIVE 2:

  • FEATURES: 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.
  • BENEFIT: 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.

D-FUSE SEATPOST:
The proprietary “D” shaped composite seatpost dampens vibration—resulting in a smooth, compliant ride.

ADVANCED COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY:
Giant's High Performance-grade raw carbon fibre is used to produce custom composite material in Giant own composite factory. Extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant, these handcrafted frames feature the following materials and processes:

  • MATERIALS: High Performance-grade raw carbon material features an excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio. 
  • RESIN: High Performance formula provides excellent void minimisation (bubbles) while maintaining outstanding strength. And vibration absorbing particles are added to help disperse road shock. 
  • MODIFIED MONOCOQUE CONSTRUCTION: The front triangle (downtube, headtube, toptube, seattube) is assembled and moulded as one continuous piece. This front half is then joined to the rear chainstays and seatstays in a secondary process. This process eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.
