In our early season review of the 2016 Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1 we show off this incredible all-around race road bike in it’s natural environment: twists, turns, descents, and climbs. The TCR Advanced Pro 1 is nimble and reactive – a great sprinter and unreal climber. It was a pleasure to hit some fast turns and feel the firm connection this bike has to the road. The Giant TCR frame was fully redesigned for 2016 with a new advanced composite construction, redesigned Variant seatpost, and Giants own SL1 carbon wheelset. Believe me when I say this bike stuck to the road and was a rocket when you put the hammer down.
One of the most incredible things about the TCR Advanced Pro 1 is how Giant was able to maintain their position of Best In Class for stiffness to weight ratio. That means that given the weight of the frame it transfers more power to the road than any other bike on the market. What’s the takeaway? This bike is light, fast, and super reactive. It will be a pleasure to ride.
If you’re a data driven purchaser you have to check out the test results Giant summarizes on their website. Not to put a test ride down – they’re the end all of research – but when you see the numbers it’s hard to think badly of the TCR Advanced Pro 1.
Stop in a Bikes and Life store and test ride the 2016 Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1 for yourself to feel the incredible performance they pack into this very reasonably priced $3200 bicycle. Take care and have fun!
