Choose the longer route. Climb higher mountains. This all-new endurance road bike is purpose-built to help you tackle long-distance road rides in all types of conditions. Here’s a look at the key technologies that make Defy Advanced a smooth, efficient machine for endurance road riding.
From bare thread to finished frame, every Giant composite bicycle is designed, engineered and hand-built in our own factory. Using state-of-the art materials and manufacturing
techniques, Advanced-Grade Composite framesets offer outstanding weight, stiffness and compliance characteristics.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise frontend steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8”
upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Proprietary D-shaped composite seatpost and handlebar work together to dampen vibrations and absorb road shock, resulting in a smoother, more compliant ride quality.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Frame comes prepared to accept the Giant RideSense sensor and accompanying hardware.
Frame/handlebar/stem feature unique cable porting for sleek, non-cluttered appearance and performance.
The frame and fork are engineered specifically for flat-mount disc-brakes, including front and rear 12mm thru-axles for reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
Integrated tubeless wheels and Gavia AC 1 28c tubeless tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
