First Look! 2013 Giant Propel Aero Road

Giant-Propel-1.1 Here is our first look at Giant’s new aero road bike, the 2013 Giant Propel SL!

Giant-Propel-1.5Cutting edge, high modulus carbon. Giant has mastered the art of shaping carbon tubing to match its form to its function.

Giant-Propel-1.3The Propel is one of the most aerodynamic bikes in its class, but still maintains a wide and stiff bottom bracket area.

Giant-Propel-1.4 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.

Giant-Propel-1.2The 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.
