Giant TCX SLR 2 (2016) (Black/White/Red)
The giant TCX SLR is equally confident going for hole shots or beer hand ups. This high-performance cyclocross bike helps you conquer the most challenging courses—on dirt, sand or mud—and is also up for gravel road adventures. The superlight ALUXX SLR aluminum frame and composite fork help you get up to speed quickly. Disc-brake technology boosts control on tight CX courses or wide-open dirt road descents, while asymmetrical chainstays add pedaling stiffness, and a D-Fuse seatpost smoothes out rough terrain.

Weight: The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
Features: Giant’s 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 you’re sprinting for the finish or cornering hard in the most demanding conditions, you can ride with more power and confidence.
