Giant Propel Advanced 0 Pro Disc 2022 Carbon Road Bike

5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Giant have used their Advanced-grade carbon to create a machine that's lightweight and stiff while remaining comfortable, with a super responsive and smooth ride feel. Pairing this with their AeroSystem tube shaping technology, Giant have crafted the Propel Advanced to deliver wind tunnel tested aerodynamic performance while still tipping the scale at an impressively low figure.

Further adding to the excellent aerodynamics of this machine is integrated disc-brake technology with flat-mounted callipers and thru-axles to give you excellent wheel stiffness and optimal braking performance regardless of the conditions, giving you boosted confidence for hectic sprints and technical descents.

All these combined means the Propel Advanced Disc gets up to speed and stays there with minimal resistance

SRAM Force eTap AXS 24 speed groupset gives reliable shifting and has been tried and tested over many years proven to be one of the best groupsets on the market with a combination of excellent quality and value for money.

Integrated Aerodynamics - AeroSystem Shaping, a result of CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing, optimises aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. The truncated ellipse airfoil tube shapes and Contact SLR/SL Aero cockpit produce the best overall aero performance.

Total Control - Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful control and modulation for added confidence in all conditions. Flat mounts and thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, and an integrated WheelSystem with a 65mm rear rim and shallower 42mm front rim optimises aerodynamics and control.

Unrivalled Efficiency - Advanced-grade composite frameset features high-performance materials and proprietary manufacturing processes for optimised stiffness and the lowest weight in its category.

Our Verdict

Closing down a gap, sprinting away from the pack or riding solo, this speed machine combines complete control with aerodynamic efficiency to create a bike that gives you the edge in all conditions.
