Product description

Hit the roads with the award winning, Giant Defy 3 - an endurance road bike for cyclists who want a fast and comfortable ride to clock up the miles on. Created by the World’s leading aluminium frame engineers.

Race pedigree oozes through the Defy. Winner of the Paris-Roubaix and Milan-San Remo One Day Classic races with Giant Alpecin rider John Degenkolb.

Frame & Fork

Key to the ride feel is an Aluxx aluminium frame which is strong, light and stiff for eating up the miles. Beat the morning traffic during the week, and discover the open road at the weekend, the Defy can take you anywhere.  

Endurance road geometry with a slightly more upright riding position (taller head tube and shorter top tube) than you find on a pure road bike reduces fatigue on long rides. All models feature the same geometry.

Upfront you get a carbon bladed fork. Carbon composite is very light and stiff for improving steering precision - ideal in a sportive ride. Composite also helps to soak up road vibrations that travel up the frame, into your limbs, leaving you less fatigued.

Components

You get a Shimano Sora 9 speed drivetrain including Sora compact chainset offering a wide range of gears for tackling any climb you test yourself against. Small steps between gears makes it easier to find the right option for your pedalling speed (cadence).

Giant’s quality S-R2 wheels are the same you’ll find on the next level up Defy 2 model and are wrapped is 25mm tyres with added puncture protection.
