NOW EVEN FASTER, THIS AERO ROCKETSHIP IS BUILT FOR SPEED WHEN IT MATTERS MOST. THE REENGINEERED FRAMESET IS EVEN MORE ADEPT AT SLICING THROUGH WIND, AND IT’S ALSO LIGHTER THAN THE PREVIOUS GENERATION. THE RESULT? RACE-WINNING EFFICIENCY THAT’S HARD TO BEAT. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Integrated aerodynamics AeroSystem Shaping, a result of CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing, optimizes aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. The truncated ellipse airfoil tube shapes and Contact SLR/SL Aero cockpit produce the best overall aero performance. Easier adjustability All-new cable routing through the handlebar and frame makes it quicker and easier to adjust or change cockpit components and fine-tune performance and riding position. Race-winning efficiency Advanced-grade composite frameset features high-performance materials and proprietary manufacturing processes. As a result, it’s now lighter than the previous generation for an improved stiffness-to-weight ratio. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PROPEL ADVANCED PRO AERO BIKE With a frame that’s handcrafted using Advanced-grade composite, and components that are integrated for overall aero performance, the all-new Propel Advanced Pro boasts smooth lines front to back. The handlebar and frame feature internal cable routing that now allows for easier adjustability. The WheelSystem uses 50mm deep rims for the perfect balance between maximum aero performance and added control. Even the disc brakes are integrated with the frame, featuring flat-mount calipers and thru-axles. AEROSYSTEM SHAPING Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance. ADVANCED COMPOSITE High-performance grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. AERO TUBELESS WHEELSYSTEM Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology, this composite aero WheelSystem and tubeless tires deliver superior efficiency, pinpoint control, and superior aerodynamics. VECTOR SEATPOST This full-composite, lightweight and aerodynamic seatpost is engineered specifically for performance road riding. OVERDRIVE AERO Found inside the head tube of the all-new Propel range, the D-shaped fork steerer tube and corresponding spacers provide an extremely aerodynamic, easier to service system of internally routed brake and derailleur cables. FULL COMPOSITE FORK D-shaped steerer tube and legs are constructed entirely from Giant’s Advanced SL-grade composite for the lightest weight and superior handling. POWERCORE A massively oversized bottom bracket area features a fully integrated 86.5mm wide design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the drive-side and stability on the non-drive-side. NEW CABLE ROUTING Frame and handlebar feature all-new cable porting for a sleek, non-cluttered appearance and easier adjustability. DISC-BRAKE INTEGRATION The frame and fork are engineered specifically for flat-mount disc brakes, including front and rear 12mm thru-axles for reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions. AERO HANDLEBAR/STEM Aero handlebar and stem are designed to reduce overall drag while minimizing weight. AERO BOTTLE CAGES Custom-engineered down tube and seat tube-specific water bottle cages help minimize overall aerodynamic drag.
CHOOSE THE LONGER ROUTE. CLIMB HIGHER MOUNTAINS. THIS SMOOTH-RIDING ENDURANCE ROAD BIKE IS MADE FOR LONG-DISTANCE RIDES ON ALL TYPES OF ROADS. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Engineered compliance Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding, giving you a smooth ride quality and less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar absorb road shocks and vibrations. Total control Seamless disc brake integration, including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads. Versatility Endurance road geometry, added tire clearance (up to 35mm) and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions, from smooth pavement to rugged mountain passes.

TECHS & FEATURES ADVANCED COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY Giant’s High-Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction. D-FUSE TECHNOLOGY The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar were designed to function as a system, absorbing road shocks, and vibrations so you can ride farther, faster. OVERDRIVE Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4" lower and 1 1/8" upper for road, 1 1/2" lower and 1 1/8" upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness. COMPACT ROAD DESIGN Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward-sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit. TUBELESS SYSTEM Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
Handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite material, the Defy Advanced is made with a specific carbon layup to give it an efficient, high-performance ride quality that helps you push new limits of endurance. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system also help reduce road vibrations, adding to its smooth, compliant feel on the road. A tubeless Giant WheelSystem and tires boost speed and efficiency with a reduced risk of flats. And for added control, it features integrated disc brakes with flat-mount disc brake tabs and 12mm thru-axles.
Gunning for the race win or digging deep for a PR, this composite road racing bike gives you the speed, efficiency and control to push it to the limit, and then a little bit more. Reengineered with updated aerodynamic tube shaping in the headtube, downtube and fork, plus added clearance for larger diameter tires, this all-rounder delivers outstanding on-the-road efficiency. The Variant seatpost adds just enough compliance to give it a balanced, race-tuned feel on the road. And with its integrated disc-brake technology, it's an all-weather, all-conditions race machine.
