Developed with pro sprinters and proven in the heat of the battle. Extensive CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing was used to optimise every frame tube and angle in a process called AeroSystem Shaping technology. The frame is handcrafted using Advanced-grade carbon 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 Aero cockpit help deliver the best overall 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.
