The fastest riders in the world just got faster. Giant has once again stepped up to the challenge of making the most advanced bike for the pursuit of pure speed. The TCR Composite Time Trial.

The TCR Composite TT uses the same formulaOne computer-aided design and stress analysis techniques that are applied to the TCR Composite and TCR Advanced to form the one-piece composite frame. Additional composite is used to achieve the teardrop and bladed shapes of the main frame's tubes, yet weight is still kept to a minimum. The bike is also strengthened laterally, improving its torsional stiffness for all-out acceleration performance.

The Composite TT has had incredible success in its brief career. In 2003 it posted a number of wins under Team ONCE riders. So far in 2004, the T-Mobile Professional Women's Cycling Team has chalked up wins in several major races, including the Tour de L'Aude Feminin individual time trial. And recently, the bike delivered Jan Ullrich of the T-Mobile Team to the individual time trial win at the 2004 Tour of Switzerland. The performance allowed Ullrich to make up a full 41 seconds on the race leader, netting him the overall general classification win by one second.

The TCR Composite TT will be available at your local Authorized Giant Retailer in the Fall of 2004.
