Product Information

 Giant Propel Advanced SL 1 2014

The Giant Propel will be a bike that surprises a lot of people.

It will surprise anyone who does the one finger lift test, as it is extremely lightweight.

It will surprise the technically minded as they survey the technology and innovation within the frame design.

It will surprise even those with aero bike experience, that this is a “normal” road bike, not some specialist time trial bike that gets used twice a year.

It may even surprise the household treasurer as it compares extremely favourably with all other similarly equipped bikes.

It will surprise the rider who will experience faster times than ever before.

It will also surprise any competitors who get left in its wake.

Everyone loves a surprise. But what won’t surprise anyone is the fact that Giant are leading the way in the race between manufacturers to have the fastest bike.

Wind tunnel tests show clearly that the Propel is far superior to any of the other aero road bikes currently available. Add this aerodynamic advantage to the Propels exceptionally light weight and the performance characteristics provided by features such as the PowerCore bottom bracket and the OverDrive 2 steerer tube and it’s easy to recognise that the Propel is one seriously fast bike.

Aerodynamic  Test Results

The Propel Advanced SL was developed with Giant’s AeroSystem Shaping Technology. Central to AeroSystem Shaping Technology is the belief that an aerodynamic bicycle should perform as well in the real world as it does in the wind tunnel. This means that every change to the design of the Propel Advanced SL was not made in isolation, but rather with a holistic eye towards how every change would impact the bicycles’ performance in the real-world—not just the wind tunnel. With this in mind, the Propel Advanced SL was tested with the aid of a dynamic mannequin which allowed for a more accurate understanding of the aerodynamic forces at work in the real-world while still controlling for the variability intrinsic to live-athlete testing. The bar charts below represent the time savings afforded by the Propel Advanced SL over a 40 kilometer time trial. These differences were calculated based on third-party wind tunnel testing conducted at the ACE wind tunnel.

The frame is only part of the deal though, however Giant have ensured the overall package remains at the same Elite level of the frame by equipping it with the latest Shimano Dura Ace 11 speed ensemble, Zipp 404 Firecrest carbon wheels and a host of other exquisite components.

The Propel Advanced SL 1 is extraordinary to look at, take one for a ride and be blown away by how well it performs.
