Magazine announced its 2016 Editors’ Choice Award winners last week during an industry event at the Sea Otter Classic cycling festival in Monterey, California, and the TCR Advanced SL was one of four Giant bikes to earn this prestigious award.
The Editors’ Choice Awards, given out annually, represents the highest honor for Bicycling, the world’s largest cycling magazine. This year the Bicycling testing staff started with more than 100 nominations, and the TCR Advanced SL was one of just 21 road bikes from various categories and price points to make the final cut and win the award.
Some of the comments that Bicycling’s testers used to describe the performance of this year’s TCR Advanced SL included: “a razor blade,” and “astonishingly finished.” It is “the most balanced of the ultra-high performance race bikes,” wrote one tester. Another said the bike is “supremely confident in any conditions.”
Summing it up, Bicycling wrote: “This bike is, simply, exceptional.”
