Giant Defy Advanced 1 – 2019

LIGHTER, SMOOTHER, FASTER. COMFORT AND CONTROL SO YOU CAN RIDE LONGER. NO GIMMICKS, JUST ADVANCED ENGINEERING.

Ride further and faster with an all-new composite frameset that’s engineered with endurance geometry and built-in compliance. Handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite material, it’s engineered with tube shapes that are optimized to absorb road shocks and vibrations.

For added control, it features integrated disc brakes with flat mounts and 12mm thru-axles. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system also help reduce road vibrations, adding to its smooth, compliant feel on the road.
