Giant looks set to announce a new disc brake triathlon bike, with a radically wide fork stance reminiscent of the Hope Lotus HB.T track bike.

Potentially called the Trinity Advanced Pro Disc, the new bike, spotted in a video posted on Youtube by Cadex (Giant’s premium in-house wheel, tyres and component brand), will completely overhaul the design of the current Giant Trinity Advanced Pro time trial and triathlon bike.

The ultra-wide fork uses straight legs and a double crown arrangement, presumably for increased front-end stiffness through the wide-stance legs.

The design is akin to that of the triathlon-specific Specialized S-Works Shiv Disc and Factor Hanzo , but with an even wider stance to the legs. Rather than bowing in at the dropouts, as seen on the Hope Lotus HB.T, the fork legs on the new Giant bike stay straight to the wheel dropouts and then come in at a right angle.The tops of the fork legs […]
