This Giant Defy Advanced 2 2018 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

Giant's Defy Advanced 2 offers Shimano 105 drivetrain components and Giant PR2 wheels as upgrades over the Defy Advanced 3.

Giant's Defy Advanced platform offers true endurance bike performance, a responsive ride and a disc brake specific design. Advanced grade composite used to be the preserve of much more expensive models but Giant have brought it to lower price points to offer the rider increased stiffness, lower weight and better compliance. Super thin seat stays and a D-Fuse composite seatpost gives excellent vertical compliance at the rear whilst the Overdrive fork steerer keeps the front end responsive and accurate. The Defy Advanced's acclaimed geometry gives an efficient, comfortable and sporting riding position which suits almost all body shapes. Defy Advanced frames are RideSense ready and will accept Giant's Ride Sense ANT+ Speed/Cadence sensor in the concealed chainstay port.

The Defy Advanced 2's componentry is based around Shimano's 105 22 speed groupset which is functionally difficult to beat. Super smooth shifting across the 11 speed cassette, precise front shifting and low weight make Shimano's 105 the benchmark in performance gear systems. The Defy Advanced 2 is fitted with an 11-32 cassette and compact 50-34 chainset to help you on the toughest climbs. Stopping power is provided courtesy of Giant's excellent Conduct hydraulic disc brakes which offer excellent all weather performance and modulation at a pricepoint where less powerful cable disc brakes are the norm.

For 2018 Giant's Defy Advanced bikes come with tubeless wheels and tubeless tyres pre installed. Not only does this offer a superior ride quality but also helps to minimise punctures. This is a genuine performance upgrade which Giant are unique in offering at this pricepoint.

The Defy Advanced 2 is perfect for riders looking for a smooth riding yet responsive bike for all types of road riding. With excellent all weather control and the genuine performance offered by a high grade carbon composite frame the Defy offers a super versatile and fun ride.

Please note: This model features tubeless ready wheels and tyres which offer a superior ride and less rolling resistance than traditional innertubes. This system requires tyre sealant to function correctly and this will be fitted in our workshop prior to despatch. The nature of this sealant means that the tyre may not be fully sealed until it has been ridden a short distance and therefore the bicycle may arrive with reduced pressure in the tyres. Please check the bicycle's tyres are inflated to the recommended pressure before cycling. Should you wish for the bicycle to be supplied with inner tubes fitted rather being set up tubeless please contact us after placing your order.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
