You can ride farther and faster with an all-new composite frameset that’s engineered with endurance geometry and built-in compliance. Firstly the frame and fork are handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite material. The Defy Advanced 2 is engineered with tube shapes that are optimised to absorb road shocks and vibrations. Likewise, the frame is still stiff in all the ways that matter. Above all, this increases pedalling efficiency as well as steering and cornering precision. Furthermore it’s made with a specific carbon layup to give 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 seatpost and handlebar system also help reduce road vibrations. As a result this adds to its smooth, compliant feel on the road. Colour: Matte Grey/Gloss Gun Metal Black
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
ENGINEERED COMPLIANCE: Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding. It delivers a smoother ride quality and less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost 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 produces more consistent braking power. Thus giving better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
VERSATILITY: Endurance road geometry, added tire clearance (up to 32c) and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions. From smooth pavement to rugged back roads and mountain passes.
