Giant 2017 Trinity Advanced Pro TT Frameset (Matte Comp/Gloss Black)
Fully UCI legal and ready not just to beat the clock, the Giant Trinity Advanced Pro TT will smash it. The all-new Trinity Advanced Pro TT was designed and developed with input from Team Giant-Alpecin’s top time trial specialists. Proven through major wins at prestigious events including the Vuelta a España, it’s engineered with Advanced-grade composite material featuring AeroSystem Shaping Technology. The frameset includes a UCI-legal fork setup, the AeroVault downtube water bottle,a specially designed Advanced SL composite base bar, and SpeedControl SL brakes.
- FRAME: High-performance Advanced-grade composite frame
- FORK: AeroDrive TT Advanced-grade composite fork with alloy/composite hybrid steerer
- BRAKES: Giant SpeedControl SL brakes with TT rear brake cover
- EXTRAS: Trinity composite seatpost, Trinity TT composite handlebar with composite extensions, AeroDrive TT stem, AeroVault downtube water bottle
Advanced Composite Technology:
Giant's High Performance-grade raw carbon fiber is used to produce custom composite material in our 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 minimization (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 molded 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.
Beginning in 2010 with a 3D scan of Giant test rider and former professional racer Grischa Niermann, Giant and development partner Aero Concept Engineering created a new, dynamic approach to wind-tunnel testing using an exact 1:1 scale mannequin, aptly named “Grischa.”
Designed with anatomically correct articulating legs, this dynamic mannequin allows Giant engineers to measure not only pressure drag and friction drag, but the precise aerodynamic interaction that occurs between the rider and bicycle while in motion—a feat not achievable using CFD or industry-standard wind-tunnel testing. By using a dynamic mannequin rather than a human rider, Giant is able to perform consistent testing, eliminating unwanted variables such as changes in body position or pedaling cadence.
In addition to Grischa, a one-off aluminum CNC’d prototype frame was developed to give Giant engineers the ability to quickly test different frame and component designs in the wind tunnel. Through this comprehensive process using both CFD analysis and dynamic wind tunnel development and testing, Giant engineers confidently optimized the Trinity Advanced Pro’s AeroSystem frame design for real-world aerodynamic performance.
(From left to right) The development process begins with extensive analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Dynamic testing in the wind tunnel using an aluminum prototype frame and the Grischa mannequin allows Giant engineers to test frame designs in real-world conditions. Production sample wind tunnel testing verifies Trinity’s performance before commercial release.
AeroSystem Shaping Technology :
Giant’s AeroSystem Shaping Technology is an approach to frame design that analyzes the distinct airflow conditions each area of the frame encounters to maximize the performance of the frame as a cohesive unit. Every tube profile, position and junction has been engineered, developed and tested extensively to work together to minimize drag and control airflow across all relevant yaw angles.
