About the Bike
Years of research, development and testing in the wind tunnel and on the roads led to the all-new Propel Advanced SL, the world’s fastest aero road bike. Its wind-slicing new innovations include AeroSystem Shaping technology, the integrated SpeedControl SLR brake system and Contact SLR Aero handlebar. The Advanced SL-grade composite frame, with best-in-class light weight, OverDrive 2 steerer tube for front end stiffness and control, and integrated seatpost for aerodynamics and compliance, help make Propel Advanced SL faster from every angle.

Propel Advanced SL O Wins Velo magazine Aero Road Test!
Velo magazine (Sept. 2013), reviewed the Propel in their wind tunnel and reported that it was the most aerodynamic of the aero bikes tested. It blew the competition away.
“The Propel was quickest at every yaw angle in the wind tunnel, on par, or slightly better, than the Cervélo S5 from last year’s aero bike test, which set the benchmark for fast. On average, that meant a savings of nearly 10 watts across all yaw angles when compared to the second place BH, and 22 watts over both the Ridley and Trek. The Giant Propel is the first aero road bike in the history of VeloLab to score best in both the tunnel and lab. It’s a fast, stiff bike, without question.” –Velo, Sept. 2013
“The Propel is one of the slickest bikes we’ve tested in the [wind] tunnel,” Velo reported. “It didn’t so much crush the competition as it did streak past, lightning quick. It had the best scores in our deflection test, an indication of lateral stiffness; in the real world, where churning legs and carbon craftsmanship are melded into human-powered machinery, the Propel feels like it does just that—propel you to greater speed.”
There is no doubt that this is a fast bike with outstanding aero characteristics!
