2013 TCR Advanced SL First Look

Using Advanced SL-grade composite and technical innovations including the OverDrive 2 steerer tube, which boosts front-end stiffness and steering precision, the TCR Advanced SL is the go-to choice for Rabobank pros that need one bike that can do it all. The MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket help boost power transfer and efficiency. The integrated seatpost saves 45 grams, improves aerodynamics and produces a more compliant ride. And the integrated RideSense ANT+ wireless sensor lets you transmit performance data including cadence and speed.

WeightHow much does this bike weigh? It’s a common question, and rightly so. But the truth is, there are no industry standards for claiming bike weights—and this leads to a lot of misinformation. Variances exist based on size, frame material, finish and hardware. And as bikes get lighter, these differences become more critical. At Giant, we believe the only way to truly know the weight of any particular bike is to find out for yourself at your local retailer.
