Giant Propel Advanced Pro Frameset (2016) (Matte Composite/Gloss Blue)
It starts with AeroSystem Shaping Technology, engineered and refined through extensive wind-tunnel analysis. Those sleek shapes and tube profiles are then handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite material to produce an aero road machine thatís both stiff and light, with a sharp, responsive ride quality. The OverDrive 2 steerer tube and PowerCore bottom bracket give it precise steering and efficient power transfer. And its purpose-built aero road technologies, including SpeedControl SL brakes and a Vector seatpost, all add up to a well-rounded performer that really shines in sprints and solo flyers.

Features: Giantís 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 youíre sprinting for the finish or cornering hard in the most demanding conditions, you can ride with more power and confidence.
- 1 1/4-inch top bearing
- 1 Ĺ-inch bottom bearing
- 1 1/4 Ėinch stem
- Tapered steerer-tube
- Custom OverDrive 2 expansion wedge
Through CFD and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
Giant's Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in our own composite factory to create the most cutting-edge frames available today. These frames feature the most advanced engineering and construction methods:
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.
