TCR ADVANCED SL DISC WINS VELONEWS ROAD BIKE OF THE YEAR AWARD!Catarina Almeida
VeloNews published its 2020 Gear Awards and one of the most hotly contested categories, Road Bike of the Year, went to the new Giant TCR Advanced SL Disc.
VeloNews Technical editor Dan Cavallari reported on the updates to the flagship model in the TCR Advanced SL Disc series. “Giant got the revamp train rolling by making its TCR Advanced SL 0 lighter, more lithe, and frankly, more fun to ride,” he wrote. “[It] still features aerodynamic tube shapes, though you wouldn’t know it at first glance. Aero aside, Giant placed its attention on light weight (my test bike weighed 14.46 pounds), increased stiffness, and ultra-responsive handling.”
Describing its performance on the road, Cavallari wrote: “The handling is the special sauce here. The TCR feels laser-focused in tight corners, and it feels stable and confident in wide, high-speed sweepers. More importantly, the focused handling makes it a blast to ride.”
