Carefully reviewing the technical characteristics of the new Propel SL, we see that it exactly traces all the components of the 2021 model, there is no news in this regard, integrating the same SRAM Force eTAP AXS 12-speed group with Quarq power meter on the cranks. The only novelty for this 2022 is found in the aesthetic field, with new colors and a maximized GIANT logo.

This groupset replaces the old 11-speed Shimano Ultegra. No weight has been published, but it is very likely that it will maintain the 8 kg of the previous model. Also as usual, it has new colors and new typography.

Flying since 2013
The Giant Propel is an aero bike classic, with a serious reputation built on countless innovations and an eye for detail since its introduction in 2013. The disc version was launched in 2018 as a replica of the bike for Michael Matthews of the Sunweb team, with which he won the green jersey of the Tour de France that same year.
