After overhauling the TCR Advanced for 2016, Giant has quickly moved on to create a disc brake version for 2017. While disc-equipped race bikes are yet to be approved for use in competition, Giant is testing the water with three models and Australian tech editor Matt Wikstrom spent a few weeks riding one of them for this review.

Giant’s TCR Advanced road bike has been growing and evolving with the company for over ten years. There have been numerous revisions, the most recent of which was unveiled for 2016 and featured a slimmer frameset that saved weight and increased the stiffness-to-weight ratio. At the same time, Giant unveiled a new carbon clincher wheelset dubbed the DBL (Dynamic Balanced Lacing) WheelSystem.
