Innovative design and cutting edge tech make Giant's Defy 1 an excellent choice for riders who want to go the distance, but don't want to compromise their comfort. Giant's ALUXX SL aluminum frame and Advanced composite fork with an OverDrive steerer let the Defy laugh at the climbs while soaking up road vibration for a super-smooth, refined ride. This rocket is more than just fast though, you'll love the tall head tube and stable geometry that allows for a more comfortable, back-friendly position so you feel great through every mile. This Defy boasts Giant's lightweight P-R2 rims, Shimano's awesome 11-speed 105 drivetrain for crisp shifting, and Tektro brakes for confident stopping. A selection of high-quality Giant components rounds out the build.
