Boosting your fitness has never been this fun. With a sleek composite frameset, flat handlebar positioning and all-road capabilities, this lightweight flyer goes from city streets to bumpy backroads with speed, comfort and control. A lightweight, smooth riding Advanced Composite frameset with a flat handlebar creates a more upright position that combines speed and stability. The composite fork further minimizes weight and helps absorb road shocks and vibrations. Dropped seatstays and a D-Fuse composite seatpost add more compliance in the rear, and ergo grips keep your hands comfortable on longer rides. The lightweight, durable wheels are fitted with high-volume 40mm tubeless tires for a smoother ride, more grip, and a reduced risk of punctures. Integrated rack mounts make it a smart choice for commuting, fitness riding and weekend adventures. Lightweight efficiency Advanced Composite frameset and sleek shaping make this model more than 200 grams lighter than the aluminum version. A stiffer bottom bracket area improves power transfer so you can accelerate and climb faster with less effort. Smooth, stable ride quality Flat handlebar frame geometry creates a more upright riding position for confident handling. Powerful disc brakes offer added control in all conditions. And the combination of a D-Fuse composite seatpost and ErgoMax saddle helps smooth out rough roads. All-road capabilities With clearance for high-volume tubeless tires (up to 42mm), riders have the freedom and versatility to ride smooth roads, bumpy bike paths or gravel. Single or double chainring setups are available on different models to suit individual riding style and terrain.
Handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite material, the Defy Advanced is made with a specific carbon layup to give it an efficient, high-performance ride quality that helps you push new limits of endurance. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system also help reduce road vibrations, adding to its smooth, compliant feel on the road. A tubeless Giant WheelSystem and tires boost speed and efficiency with a reduced risk of flats. And for added control, it features integrated disc brakes with flat-mount disc brake tabs and 12mm thru-axles.

CHOOSE THE LONGER ROUTE. CLIMB HIGHER MOUNTAINS. THIS SMOOTH-RIDING ENDURANCE ROAD BIKE IS MADE FOR LONG-DISTANCE RIDES ON ALL TYPES OF ROADS. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Engineered compliance Advanced Composite frame is engineered for endurance road riding. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar absorb road shocks and vibrations, and its smooth ride quality means you’ll feel less fatigue on long rides. Total control Seamless disc-brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and on rough roads. Versatility Endurance road geometry, plenty of tire clearance (up to 35mm), and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions, from smooth pavement to rugged mountain passes. TECHS & FEATURES ADVANCED COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY Giant’s High-Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction. D-FUSE TECHNOLOGY The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar were designed to function as a system, absorbing road shocks, and vibrations so you can ride farther, faster. OVERDRIVE Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4" lower and 1 1/8" upper for road, 1 1/2" lower and 1 1/8" upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness. COMPACT ROAD DESIGN Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward-sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit. TUBELESS SYSTEM Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
