Giant TCX Advanced SL – Just In - BikeRadar

Arriving on the BikeRadar office doorstep just as the heart of the cyclo-cross season is getting underway is Giant's TCX Advanced SL flagship, which is being raced on the World Cup circuit by Katie Compton, Bart Aernouts and Gerben de Knegt.

The TCX Advanced SL shares much of its design DNA with the road-going TCR Advanced SL, with features such as a tapered front end, rectangular-section MegaDrive down tube, extra-wide PowerCore bottom bracket with press-fit bearing cups, and integrated seatmast. Giant have made a number of adjustments to make the TCX Advanced SL more suitable for its chosen discipline, however.

Ride quality is high on the list of priorities here, with the TCX's shallower seatmast cross-section, offset seat cluster, slim seatstays, much flatter top tube and generally smaller-profile tubes throughout all intended to provide a smoother feel on rough courses. The tapered front end is also downsized from the TCR (1-1/8 to 1-1/4in instead of 1-1/4 to 1-1/2in).
