First Look! 2013 Giant Propel Aero Road
Here is our first look at Giant’s new aero road bike, the 2013 Giant Propel SL!
Cutting edge, high modulus carbon. Giant has mastered the art of shaping carbon tubing to match its form to its function.
The Propel is one of the most aerodynamic bikes in its class, but still maintains a wide and stiff bottom bracket area.
The aero seatpost mast is very narrow, as is the juncture between the seat tube and seat stays. These sections make for a comfortable riding frame despite the stouter tubing found elsewhere.
The careful positioning of the rear brakes keeps them out of the airflow. The hourglass shaped headtube still houses oversized 1 1/2″ lower and 1 1/4″ upper headset bearings.
