These will be interesting when/if they arrive.

A

Benefit: Reduced weight and superior ride compliance for long days in the saddle. The Inside Line: Both made possible through the implementation of a composite upper structure. Vibrations that normally would be transmitted to a rider?s hands and backside are dissipated by the composite structure.

 

B

Benefit: Virtually seamless junctions for increased strength and smooth appearance. The Inside Line: By wrapping each composite/aluminum union with carbon filament, Alliance frames feature nearly seamless junctions for superior strength and smooth appearance.

 

C

Benefit: Alliance aluminum sections feature radical butting for minimal weight, maximum stiffness and outstanding strength. The Inside Line: Butted, hydro-formed ALUXX SL aluminum tubing allows Giant engineers to place the precise amount of aluminum in critical-stress areas.

 

D

Benefit: Outstanding vibration absorption for a supremely comfortable ride. The Inside Line: Thanks to a unique composite insert co-molded to the inside of the aluminum seattube, Alliance frames are able to dissipate significantly more road vibration than a traditional aluminum seattube. Say goodbye to numb hands, forearms and backside.

 

E

Benefit: Unyielding lateral stiffness for highly efficient power transfer The Inside Line: Outstanding power transfer is achieved through the lower aluminum sub-structure, but without the drawback of a harsh ride?just right for high-intensity sprints and power climbs.

Your'e right Christie, If no one has noticed Giant has no Alu TCR this year, My step brother (works at Giant in the states) says that this is just to fill the gap between the OCR and TCR carbon

Looks like other manufacturers is beginning to copy the Cannondale concept of the best of both worlds in the Six Therteen and System Six.
