Defy Advanced SL Frameset

$4,499

Award Winning Bikes

Go long. Go fast. Superlight and silky smooth, the flagship frameset of the new Defy range represents the pinnacle of endurance road performance. The frame and fork are both crafted from Giant's pro-level Advanced SL-grade composite, and the new SLR D-Fuse seatpost adds a small amount of flexing action (up to 7mm) for road-smoothing compliance.

Ultralight Carbon Endurance Road Bike Frame

With greater lateral stiffness and a superlight weight of just 785g (size medium, frame only), this is the lightest, most efficient Defy frame ever. It's paired with a new Advanced SL-grade fork that weighs 350g, 15 percent lighter than the previous generation Defy fork. This frameset also includes the new D-Fuse SLR seatpost, which adds 40 percent more road-smoothing compliance compared to the previous generation, and two bottle cages.

  • Weight
    The 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 our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
