Overview

INNOVATIVE ALLOY DESIGN MEETS ENDURANCE ROAD GEOMETRY. STAY COMFORTABLE AS YOU PUSH BEYOND YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

Brought to you by the world’s leading aluminum frame engineers, Defy redefines the performance possibilities of an entry-level road bike. Born in Giant’s own in-house aluminum forging facility and engineered with FluidForm ALUXX SL aluminum tubes, it climbs, corners and sprints better than many bikes that cost thousands more. Frame technologies include the OverDrive steerer tube for stiffness and sharp steering and PowerCore oversized bottom bracket area for stiff, efficient power transfer.

WeightThe most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
