Overview

PRO-LEVEL PERFORMANCE WITH A SMOOTHER RIDE. THE ULTIMATE ENDURANCE MACHINE ALSO LOVES TO CLIMB AND SPRINT.

The Rabobank team asked for a lightweight, stiff, alternative-geometry bike for longer distances and rougher roads. The all-new Defy Advanced SL is the answer. Built with Advanced SL-grade composite, and system-engineered with the new oversize OverDrive 2 headtube and fork-plus the RideSense ANT+ sensor for wireless data transmission-it takes the endurance road bike beyond integration. A MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket add unmatched stiffness, precision and pedaling efficiency.

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.
