Product Description

With less fatigue you can ride further.

  • Full Advanced Grade carbon fork for precise steering control
  • Shimano Tiagra 2x10 speed drivetrain with wide range cassette
  • Giant Conduct hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power
  • Giant SR-2 tubeless wheels and tyres for puncture free cycling
  • Sizes: Small, Medium, Medium/Large, Large, X Large
  • Colours: Carbon/Neon Yellow
  • The Giant Defy Advanced 3 is available with 0% APR finance

Choose the longer route. Climb higher mountains. This all-new endurance road bike is purpose built to help you tackle long-distance road rides in all types of conditions. It’s smooth, it’s efficient and it’s fast.

Engineered compliance: Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding, delivering a smooth ride quality ensuring less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system work seamlessly with the frame to 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 on rough roads.

Versatility: Endurance road geometry, added tyre clearance (up to 32c) and disc brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions.

Advanced Composite Technology

High-performance grade raw carbon material is 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.

Compact Road Design

Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionised the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping top tube (from the head tube to the seat tube) 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.

Compliance Tuned Technology

Specific composite layup and tube shaping, including ultra-thin and flattened seat stays, a low seat stay/seat tube junction and thin, slightly curved fork legs combine for a balanced, compliant ride quality and reduced rider fatigue.

D-Fuse

Named for the shape of the seatpost and handlebar, the lightweight D fuse components work as part of the bike to significantly reduce road vibrations and aid compliance.

Disc brake integration

The frame and fork are engineered specifically for disc brakes for reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.

OverDrive

Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized 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.

Giant Tubeless System

Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tyres delivers improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.

Great all rounder
by Mark T on 22/03/2019

Great comfy do it all bike. I generally ride 40-50 mile club rides with mixed terrain. This bike climbs like a goat and decends like a demon. 45mph decents super stable and with the disc brakes give that needed extra stopping power. The 28mm tubless tyres soak up much of the road clatter helped by the D Fuse seat post. I cruise quite happily at 20mph on our poor uk roads with no discomfort or numbness at the end of the ride. I thought it was going to be a compromise going with the Tragra gearing but Im impressed by how slick this groupset is. If I had one critisism it would be that the wheels are quite heavy and will be the only thing on this bike that I will be upgrading.
