Giant Defy Advanced 2 Road Bike 2022
Choose the longer route. Climb higher mountains. The Giant Defy Advanced 2 is a smooth-riding endurance road bike is made for long-distance rides on all types of roads.
Key Performance Factors
- Engineered compliance
Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding, giving you a smooth ride quality and less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar absorb road shocks and vibrations.
- Total control
Seamless disc brake integration, including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
Endurance road geometry, added tyre clearance (up to 35mm) and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions, from smooth pavement to rugged mountain passes.
Technology of Giant Defy Advanced 2
- Advanced Composite Technology
Giant’s High Performance Grade raw carbon material us used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and moulded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
- D-Fuse Technology
The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar were designed to function as a system, absorbing road shocks and vibrations so you can ride further, faster.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s over sided headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
- Compact Road Design
Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
- Tubeless System
Fewer flat tyres. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
- RideSense Ready
This frame comes prepared to accept the Giant RideSense sensor and accompanying hardware
