Ride farther and faster with the Giant Defy Advanced 1. Firstly, its all-new composite frame-set is engineered with endurance geometry and built-in compliance. The Defy’s engineered tube shapes are handcrafted using Advanced-grade composite material. These tube shapes are optimised to absorb road shocks and vibrations. Furthermore the frame is still stiff in all the ways that matter – for pedalling efficiency as well as steering and cornering precision. The specific carbon layup gives it just the right feel. Also, for added control, it features integrated disc brakes with flat mounts and 12mm thru-axles. Finally, the D-Fuse seat-post and handlebar system help reduce road vibrations. As a result you get a smooth, compliant feel on the road.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
ENGINEERED COMPLIANCE: The Defy’s Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding. It delivers a smoother ride quality with less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seat-post and handlebar system works seamlessly with the frame to absorb road shocks and vibrations.
TOTAL CONTROL: Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles. This produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
VERSATILITY: Endurance road geometry, added tyre clearance and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions. From smooth pavement to rugged back-roads and mountain passes.
