The Giant ToughRoad SLR is the bike that defies categorization. Equal parts rigid MTB, touring adventure road, and flat bar CX bike, it manages to be everything all at once. With its superlight ALUXX SLR-grade aluminum frame and a lightweight yet smooth-handling composite fork, this quick and efficient go-anywhere bike is ready for adventure. Built around fast and stable 700c wheels and flat-bar positioning, ToughRoad SLR boasts a number of frame features to serve its rugged yet sporty nature. The D-Fuse seatpost smoothes out choppy roads or trails. The disc brake technology gives you all-weather control. And the geometry offers a stable, comfortable, flat-bar position for confident handling in variable conditions and 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.
