LIGHT AND LIVELY. THAT’S HOW TEST EDITORS OFTEN DESCRIBE THE AWARD-WINNING DEFY. FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF WHY THE EXPERTS ARE RIGHT.

Pure performance from the world’s most advanced aluminum engineers. With its lightweight, stiff, ride-tuned ALUXX SL frameset, Defy breaks all the rules of what was previously thought possible for an entry-level road bike. Fitted with performance wheels and parts, it climbs, corners and sprints like bikes costing thousands more.

Key Upgrades (over Defy 3):
— Full 9-speed Shimano Tiagra shifting
— Giant Connect (composite) seatpost
— Flat-resistant Giant P-R3 tires
— Color: White/Black/Yellow

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 Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
