Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
Aerosystem Shaping Technology
Vector Integrated Seatpost
Designed as a key performance factor in the overall frameset, the integrated seatpost saves up to 45 grams compared to standard composite posts, while improving aerodynamics and adding road-smoothing compliance.
Advanced SL Composite
Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in our own composite factory using our most advanced engineering and construction methods including: Continuous Fiber Technology to add strength while reducing weight; Carbon Nanotube Technology resin to improve impact resistance; and Fusion Process for lighter, stronger frame junctions.
Giant’s most advanced steerer tube technology offers unprecedented steering precision. Oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and a tapered steerer tube produce superior front-end stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86mm wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Internal Cable Routing
Frame/handlebar/stem feature unique cable porting for sleek, non-cluttered appearance and performance.
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 and stem are designed to reduce overall drag while minimizing weight.
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology, this aero WheelSystem delivers superior efficiency, pinpoint control and supreme aerodynamics.
