Lots of bike for rides with lots of miles. That's the whole idea behind the Defy Advanced 3.

The Defy series puts the emphasis on rider comfort and stability when traversing rough and choppy pavement. Hills and valleys along the way? The Defy Advanced 3 has your back with value and performance in the same package. For starters, a lightweight Advanced-grade Composite carbon fiber frame and Advanced-grade carbon fiber fork. Not only does the frame and fork keep overall weight low, but it also soaks up fatiguing vibration to keep you fresher for longer, even after hours in the saddle. The PowerCore press-fit bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery at the crankset, while the tapered head tube adds an extra dose of precision to the Defy's handling. The overall fit of the Defy Advanced 3 is more upright than traditional high-performance road bikes, allowing it to fit a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilties- for long distance rides and centuries. Internal cable routing gives the bike a sleek look while keeping brake and shifter cables running clean.

Shimano has been producing 10-speed Shimano Tiagra components for awhile now, making mid-range road bikes feel like ProTour racing machines. The adjustable-reach dual-control levers, front derailleur, long-cage rear derailleur, 50/34T compact crankset and 11-32T cassette all work in concert, bringing crisp shifting, smooth operation and long service life to the Defy Advanced 3. Tubeless-ready alloy Giant S-R2 wheels are shod with 700x25c Giant Gavia AC1 tires, adding easy acceleration and confident grip to the bike, especially in high-speed corners and descents. Giant's own Conduct hydraulic disc brakes bring confident stopping power to the Defy Advanced 3 in all conditions, rain or shine.

The Giant Defy Advanced 3 features a clever way to soak up road chatter and impact called D-Fuse. The Composite carbon fiber seatpost has a D-shaped profile, allowing it to flex backwards slightly over rough and choppy tarmac. Cool, huh? The D-Fuse shape also extends down the Advanced-grade carbon fiber seat tube, adding some vertical give to the bike it otherwise wouldn't have. A Contact Neutral saddle, alloy Connect stem and alloy Connect road handlebar finish off this excellent century challenger.
