The technology behind Giant's Advanced SL frame.

Giant's Advanced SL features the highest-quality carbon formed into a frame through cutting-edge construction techniques. Top-end, raw T-800 carbon is carefully woven in Giant's own composite factory, then handcrafted into framesets utilizing Giant's most advanced construction technique, Fusion. This produces what may be the lightest, stiffest and most compliant framesets ever to roll on two wheels.

In addition to the superior carbon construction, Giant's Advanced SL frames boast the following technologies to make your ride better than ever!

1. Integrated seatpost - in addition to saving weight, Giant's integrated seatpost improves aerodynamics and allows a more compliant ride.

2. Fusion - by utilizing an intensive 2-step molding procedure, Fusion junctions are stronger, lighter and far more precise than the traditional co-cured junctions or monocoque construction.

3. Overdrive 2 - Giant's head tube and fork steerer tapers from 1 1/4 inch at the the top to 1 1/2 inch at the bottom for pinpoint steering, lateral stability and superb torsional stiffness.

4. Megadrive - Giant's massive rectangular down tube combines with their oversize top tube to provide unprecedented stiffness, handling and acceleration.

5. Powercore - through the use of an integrated 86mm wide bottom bracket and asymmetrical chainstays, the Advanced SL frame features fantastic pedaling stiffness so every watt of effort rockets you forward.
