The latest Giant TCR Advanced SL, the flagship model from Giant, is the bike to be used by the Team Sunweb’s men’s roster in the 2017 road season.
Shimano remains as the team’s drivetrain and wheel supplier, with the new 9150 / 9170 Dura-Ace Di2 systems.
“The Giant TCR has superior efficiency,” said Tom Davids, Team Sunweb’s R&D Expert. “It delivers the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any production road bike and is perfect for the hilly races and mountain stages. It allows our riders to attack steep climbs and perfectly manoeuvre technical descents.
“It easily reaches the 6.8kg UCI weight limit and still has the needed stiffness for fast accelerations, making it a perfect addition to the team’s equipment.”
“The combination of the latest carbon-fibre technology, the world’s most advanced manufacturing processes and an enormous amount of research and data analysis have led to what we believe is the world’s most competitive bike. We also believe that this machine gives us the competitive advantage that we have been aiming for, and specifically those races in which our team is targeting.”
