2017 Giant Defy Advanced SL 1

The ultimate bike to ride smoother, faster and stronger. This is the new standard for endurance road performance. Centuries, gran fondos and rough roads—there is no better road machine for long, demanding days in the saddle. The frame is handcrafted with Giant’s superlight, professional-grade Advanced SL composite with endurance geometry. Innovative features including flat-mount disc brake integration, 12mm front and rear thru-axles and the vibration-damping D-Fuse integrated seatpost deliver control and compliance. The oversized and tapered OverDrive 2 steerer tube boosts cornering precision. And the MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket produce sharp handling and best-in-class pedaling efficiency.
