Giant brings value to every performance road bicycle they make. The Defy Advanced 1 is no exception!


Can performance and value truly co-exist in a road bicycle? The Defy Advanced 1 demonstrates this with a featherweight Advanced Composite carbon fiber frame, Shimano's latest version of their Ultegra components, and tubeless alloy wheels. The closer you look at the details of this bicycle, the more it will win you over. Giant's own Advanced-Grade Composite carbon fiber is used with a specific layup to keep weight to a minimum while enhancing torsional strength. The frame design also makes every pedal stroke matter. A tapered OverDrive head tube and massive PowerCore bottom bracket anchor the faceted down tube for instant power transfer and razor-sharp handling. High-speed turns and descents can be attacked with confidence that the bike will go where you point it! Internal cable routing and flat-mount disc brake installation keep the Defy Advanced 1 looking clean and sleek. 12mm thru-axle dropouts align the brake rotors perfectly when installing wheels, as well as adding an extra dash of handling precision. Need a more upright fit? The tall head tube and relaxed geometry makes it easy for a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable on the Defy Advanced 1. Looking for even wider rubber than the 28mm stock tires? The Defy Advanced 1 will take up to 32mm tires for really rough roads or hardpan gravel.


Shimano's high-performance Ultegra components have been impressing us for years with incredible durability, lightning-quick operation and very light weight. Those components are found throughout the drivetrain of the Defy Advanced 1, including the dual-control levers, front derailleur, long-cage Shadow-style rear derailleur and wide-range 11-34T cassette. A Shimano 50/34T compact crankset does power delivery duty. Giant's own P-R2 Disc tubeless alloy wheels and 700x28c Gavia AC 1 tubeless tires. There's plenty of stopping power to be found on the Defy Advanced 1 with Giant's Conduct hydraulic disc brakes. Rain or shine, disc brakes are always better performers. A Giant Contact saddle, alloy Connect stem and alloy D-Fuse road handlebar complete this exceptional road bike.


Take a look back at the price tag and you'll agree that performance doesn't have to be expensive.
