Details

Super sleek and undeniably aerodynamic, Giant’s Propel Advanced SL Frameset is ready to beat one of your biggest competitors—the wind—at all times, from every angle. Honed in the wind tunnel and constructed from Giant’s Advanced SL-Grade composite, this rocket is destined to increase your speed. The electronic drivetrain-ready frame boasts an integrated seatpost for compliance, and hidden, tucked-in brakes to reduce air turbulence. Balancing aerodynamics with ride quality and rigidity, the Propel’s incredibly beefy bottom bracket delivers stiffness where you need it and the oversize steerer ensures pinpoint cornering. To top it all off, Giant's RideSense sensor is integrated into the chainstay to give you speed and cadence with any ANT+ compatible device.

Giant Propel technology

  1. Aerosystem shaping technology: engineers used extensive wind-tunnel testing research with various tube shapes to optimize the shape of every tube and junction for overall system aerodynamics.
  2. Giant's Contact SLR Aero Integrated Bar/Stem: an oversized stem designed for torsional stiffness is paired to a composite handlebar with an aero top profile.
  3. SpeedControl SLR brakes: made from a molded composite, these provide solid stopping power, stay tucked out of the wind and allow for easy maintenance.
  4. Integrated seatpost: it's aero, it's light weight, and it delivers a superb ride feel. An adjustable saddle clamp offers 10 or 23mm of offset for precise position.
  5. Advanced SL-Grade composite technology: high-performance, T-800 raw composite material is woven in Giant's own factory.
  6. OverDrive 2: an oversize, tapered fork steerer tube increases stiffness and enhances cornering performance.
  7. PowerCore: a massive, 86mm-wide press-fit bottom bracket ensures stiffness at the pedals. The asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
  8. RideSense: integrated, removable wireless data transmitter that sends wheel speed and cadence information to any ANT+ compatible device.
  9. Internal cable routing: keeps the bike sleek and clutter-free.

Giant’s RideSense transmitter sends speed and cadence information to any ANT+ compatible computer. The transmitter is seamlessly integrated into the chainstay, though it can be easily removed.

Comments:

I am an up and coming racer, who was ready to take the next step to a top of the line machine. Moment Bikes built this frame up with my HED Ardennes Wheelset and Ultegra Di2 groupo. What a fantastic ride! After the fitting process (conducted by Vince) we had no trouble selecting the right frame for my size and needs. As a rouleur, excelling mainly on flat courses, with rolling hills, and short, punchy climbs, the aero prifile of the Propel is a perfect fit for my riding style. The aero tubing provides a noticeable benefit in all wind conditions and descents. At race pace, on the front of the group, these aerodynamic properties allow me to hold the same speed with less power output, saving precious energy for the final. The bike is also very laterally stiff and responds well to out of the saddle efforts at full gas. I could not be happier with this bike, it performs at a top level that I would never have dreamed was possible. I am very satisfied.
