The Giant Defy Advanced Pro 3 is a true endurance road race bike, designed to help you ride faster...and further. Built around an Advanced Grade Composite frame matched to race proven geometry and confidence inspiring disc brakes, the Defy is an all-round performer.
Giant Alpecin rider John Degenkolb rode his Defy to win the One Day Classic races, Paris-Roubaix and Milan-San Remo - so you know you’re getting race pedigree.
You can buy the 2016 Giant Defy Advanced Pro 3 endurance road bike through a 0% interest Tredz Finance package.
Frame & Fork
The Defy is constructed from high performance grade raw carbon fibres, chosen for their high stiffness to weight ratio. The resin uses vibration damping particles to reduce fatigue on long-distance epics.
A modified monocoque construction where the front triangle is built as one piece, then joined to the rear stays eliminates the need for the outermost composite sheet. This reduces weight without sacrificing ride quality, strength or stiffness.
Key to the ride feel is the proven geometry with a taller head tube and shorter top tube that puts you into a more upright riding position.
The Defy is an endurance bike, and as such is built with compliance enhancing features such as ultra thin and flattened stays, These are vertically compliant to absorb road buzz. A D-Fuse SL seatpost offers more fore/aft movement than traditional round profile for added comfort. This compliance does not make the Defy Advanced Pro 3 sluggish. Lateral and torsional stiffness are maintained for efficient power transfer and precise handling.
Improving stiffness upfront is a full composite fork with OverDrive 2 steerer that greatly improves steering precision. An oversized PowerCore bottom bracket improves lateral stiffness so more of your power goes straight through to the wheels.
Equipped is the performance level Shimano 105 11 speed groupset with a wide range cassette and 105 compact cranks, so you can tackle any climb you face. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes are power and reliable in all weather conditions. These brakes also have great modulation so you can manage your speed with precision.
The Defy rolls on lightweight Giant SL 1 disc specific wheels which are durable for longevity.
The Defy Advanced Pro comes with Giant’s chainstay integrated wireless data transmitter - RideSense. This removable transmitter sends wheel speed and cadence information directly to any ANT+ compatible computer.
