Giant's Defy Advanced 3 2017 is made for long rides. With a lightweight advanced-grade composite frame with specially designed geometry to keep fatigue to a minimum, this road bike offers speed and endurance so you can ride in confidence.
Even in wet weather, the disc-brake technology stays ultra-responsive, with 12mm front and rear thru-axles. A D-Fuse seatpost and flattened super-thin seatstays on the rear triangle absorb road vibrations and help enhance the comfort of your ride, so you stay in control even on long commutes.
