FAST GRAVEL IS FUN GRAVEL. THE RACE BIKE OF CHOICE FOR GIANT GRAVEL RACING PROS IS SUPERLIGHT, SMOOTH OVER RUGGED ROADS, AND ADAPTABLE TO ALL TYPES OF CONDITIONS AND RIDING STYLES. RACE IT, RIDE IT, LOVE IT.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
Advanced composite frame and Advanced SL composite fork save a combined 200 grams compared to the previous generation. Updated geometry includes a lower bottom bracket, longer reach, and steeper head tube angle for improved acceleration and climbing.
A lowered seatstay junction with smaller diameter tubes absorbs road shocks and vibrations. The Contact SLR XR D-Fuse carbon handlebar and D-Fuse seatpost work as a system to optimize compliance without sacrificing stiffness while cornering, sprinting, and climbing.
Adaptable to the terrain
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase: short for quicker handling, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting also allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can choose the included D-Fuse SLR composite seatpost for maximum compliance, or switch to a 30.9mm round or dropper post.
TECHS & FEATURES
ADVANCED COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY
Giant's High-Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
ADVANCED SL COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY
Professional Grade raw carbon fiber is woven in our composite factory to produce our lightest, stiffest, and highest-quality frames. This is the technology used by Giant's pro racers in almost every cycling discipline.
The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar were designed to function as a system, absorbing road shocks, and vibrations so you can ride farther, and faster.
The most advanced steerer tube technology in today's Giant bikes. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system's oversized headset bearings (1 1/2" lower, 1 1/4" upper) and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant's Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
FLIP CHIP - DROPOUT
Allows riders to quickly adjust the geometry and rear-wheel tire clearance with eccentric, offset two-position hardware in the rear wheel dropouts.
