GIANT PROPEL ADVANCED PRO 1 2020
Give yourself the aero advantage when and where you need it most. This wind-slicing road bike minimizes drag and saves precious watts in sprints, breakaways and attacks. Because small gains lead to big wins.
Developed with pro sprinters and proven in the heat of the battle, the Propel Advanced Pro combines the superior aerodynamic performance of the current Propel Disc range with the convenience of new and improved rim brake performance. Extensive CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing was used to optimize every frame tube and angle in a process called AeroSystem Shaping technology. The frame is handcrafted using Advanced-grade composite material to produce a bike that is both lightweight and stiff, with a sharp, responsive ride quality. Purpose-built aero road technologies, including SpeedControl brakes, a Vector seatpost and rim-brake technology put the new Propel Advanced Pro ahead of the pack.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
AeroSystem Shaping, a result of extensive CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing, creates the best aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. A new truncated ellipse airfoil shape and Contact SLR/SL Aero cockpit help deliver the best overall aero performance.
Integrated rim-brake technology delivers outstanding braking power in most conditions. The integrated Giant WheelSystem further improves control with a 65mm deep rear rim and a shallower 42mm front rim for added control in crosswinds.
The frameset, including the integrated stem and handlebar, features best-in-class weight and stiffness. Increased frame stiffness allows the rider to reach and maintain higher speeds with less effort.
