With an outstanding stiffness-to-weight ratio and updated aero tube shaping, this frameset is engineered for superior climbing capabilities, aerodynamic efficiency and sprint stiffness for race-winning performance.
This is where the TCR’s most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analyzed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles.
Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful stopping power and modulation for added control in variable weather and road conditions. Flat mounts and new thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, while added frame and fork clearance allows for larger diameter tires up to 32mm.
This podium-seeking road racer is engineered with an Advanced-grade composite frame that boasts an outstanding stiff-to-weight ratio, along with aerodynamic tube shaping in the headtube, downtube and fork. It also features added frame and fork clearance for larger diameter tires up to 32mm, making it a versatile race machine for all types of road conditions. With its proven Compact Road geometry, OverDrive 2 front end, flat-mount disc-brake integration and smooth-riding Variant seatpost, it’s a race-tuned performer that excels in all aspects of road riding.
