Defy Advanced 2, Cycling Plus 2013 Bike of the Year!

Defy Advanced Wins Cycling Plus Bike of the Year!

March 1, 2013

The British magazine Cycling Plus has named the Giant Defy Advanced 2 its 2013 Bike of the Year. The Defy Advanced 2 beat out a long list of 40 finalist bikes priced between $2,350 and $3,150 to take the coveted title.

“Every one of the 40 bikes we put through their paces would make a modern road cyclist happy, but the Giant Defy Advanced 2 has the edge,” said Cycling Plus editor Rob Spedding on the publication’s sister website, Bike Radar. “It’s just so versatile—comfortable enough to spend all day on it; light enough to help you fly up hills, but as satisfying a bike to fling around corners you’ll find.”
