Giant TCR Advanced 3 Disc 2022 Carbon Road Bike Gloss Sapphire

3.2 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Thanks to its new strategic aero tube shaping, added tyre clearance and integrated disc-brake technology, the features of the TCR Advanced 3 Disc’s frame combine to deliver novice and expert riders a versatile road performance every time. The headtube, downtube and fork have been re-engineered with updated aerodynamic tube shaping, plus Giant have added clearance for larger diameter tyres (up to 32mm disc brake, 28mm rim brake), the new TCR Advanced Disc delivers outstanding all-round on-the-road efficiency.

 

The updated, more aerodynamic Variant seatpost adds enough compliance to give it a balanced, race-tuned feel on the road, and with its integrated disc-brake technology, including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, it’s an all-weather, all-conditions race machine to keep you at the front of the pack.

 

Regarded as the entry-level model in Giant’s TCR Advanced Disc Series, despite this the Advanced 3 remains a demonstration of a race-tuned performance road bike with its eyes firmly set on victory. The Advanced 3 features a full Shimano Tiagra 10-speed groupset to ensure excellent power transfer at a great price, a set of Giant P-R2 wheels that when combined with its Giant Course 1, tubeless 25mm tyres produce finely-tuned ride quality.

 

  • Super adaptable - great aerodynamics, with optimal comfort and climbing capabilities
  • Disc brakes for full control in all weather
  • Shimano 10-seed Tiagra gearing

Our Verdict

Giant's latest and greatest iteration of the TCR Advanced 3 Disc to date gives road riders of all levels, from Tour de France professionals to aspiring enthusiasts, an all-round finely-tuned all-weather racing machine.
