The wait is finally over! Giant has launched the latest version of its dedicated aero road bike, the Propel. As you’ve probably guessed, the 2023 Giant Propel is claimed to be lighter, stiffer, more compliant and more aerodynamically efficient than its predecessor, the 2018 Giant Propel. Giant also says its new OverDrive Aero cable routing system makes the new Propel easier to adjust, while still effectively hiding any cables from the wind. We have already got our hands on a top-spec model and can confirm it weighs less than 7 kilograms for a size medium / large – that’s got to be one of the lightest disc-brake aero road bikes we’ve ever seen! We bet you know a lighter disc-brake aero road bike, so if you do, let us know in the comments!

Another silly over priced and cheaply fabricated Far East sweatshop made CF stock cookie cutter bike. Gullible suckers are born every minute. 😀😀
You should weigh the bike without saddle. It would be event lighter! And unrideable as without pedals. 🤣
Looks much better than the previous one - the frame geometry, the paintjob, everything! Just not sure about that stem being 'open' along the bottom though.. Aero bikes I guess find their use in the peloton, me as a mere amateur I enjoy exposed cables and older non-aero classic frames.
Probably cost an eye watering £12k in that spec😅😅
Cheap composite frame
It's not a bike without pedals. Put pedals on the bike then weigh it again. Then go back and change your description to say it weights 7.3kg
@ gReMHnVAcGM&t=2m30s 2:30 they said over 2018 propel? So I guess they just didn't compare against 2022. As expected...
Propel goes mainstream. Lol.
GIANT PROPEL 🌞 # 1 Chicago 🇵🇱🚲
Bought the “previous” 2022 propel advanced pro disc 0 last week, kinda annoyed they didn’t say this one was about to drop, but glad too because I honestly love the chunkier look of mine over this slimmed down version thats giving me Bulimia vibes, the old version has character and more technology than anyone needs, oh and it’s down to $7600… win win
This is exactly what I wanted. Better stem and lighter.
Just purely based on what we know about aero and optimal tube design to achieve highest aerodyanamic benefits... how on earth can this be labeled 'aero' ?? If the gold standard for aero is TT bikes and very fast sprint bikes, this just cannot be in that category. It's a pretty normally shaped 'one size fits all' type of bike. Not that that is bad, but I get tired of all these 'aero' claims all the time.
Giant went back to TCR from 2010-2014 gen and came up with this! It should have been done long time ago! Great design!!
As a former rider & since team mechanic over many years.
GIANT absolutely make high quality & great value frames, bikes & wheels, but guys & gals...don't be swept along in all manufacturers marketing quoting improvements on past models etc etc.
You the rider, the engine, is what matters in the real world.
Put a high level rider on a 20yr old bike & he/she will still perform at the high level.
Put a low lever rider on the very latest, lightest, most expensive bike & he/she will still perform at a low level.
Use your brains & common sense.
Hmm do I buy a Ducati Panigale or a f**** bicycle for the same wonga?
In Denmark the top end SL cost no less than 19 K AUD 😂
I like it!
The last version just didn't look right, especially that sharp looking stem cap. I'd actually consider buying this one for sure.
Basically a Giant TCR put in a wind tunnel without a sloping top tube. I'll keep my TCR thank you.
If they really cared about customers they would focus in having 2-3k bikes in stores for regular people but no. They would rather spend their time developing bikes no regular human can buy.
