Over the past four decades, Giant has become one of the most well- known bicycle brands in the world. Giant Bicycles has won world championships as well as numerous awards online and in- print cycling magazines.

Engineering driven performance. The Defy is an award winning endurance geometry featuring an lower weight, superior stiffness, compliance and control.
For 2016, Giant designed the Defy to run disc brakes. At a glance, you'll notice Giant designed the Defy with less holes in the carbon fiber. Engineers purposefully did so to shave off grams. The D-fuse rounded integrated seat tube is taken from the TCX design and offers a streamlined and compliant design. Super thin seat stays are 1.3mm and untraditionally sit lower on the frame for compliance. For additional compliance, the top tube is also shaped to be flat up top but rounded out towards the seat post and head tube.
The Defy went through rigorous tests gleaning stiffness data to ensure the Defy offers an improved ride quality. With much research being put into an optimal frame design, Giant paired the Defy with Shimano 105 11 speed groupset. The TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes offer a superior braking experience. The Shimano RS500 crankset is compact and paired with a Shimano 105 11-28 cassette. The Defy Advanced 2 rolls on Giant's own P-R2 Disc wheelset and Giant P-R3 tires.
