Giant Defy Advanced 2 2017

The Defy Advanced is an ideal bike for the sporty "weekend rider" who might also get out one or two times a week or the longer distance rider for who personal comfort is an important criterion when selecting a bike. This level of comfort is also welcomed by those who may ride a little less often and are not hardened to the stresses and strains placed on the body when riding. The older rider who may have lost some flexibility over time. Anyone with a back pain, or simply anyone who sees as much value in getting to their destination more comfortable rather than just at a faster rate.

This improved level of comfort is attained in 2 ways. By a frame design that allows the rider a more upright riding position, reducing the need to bend low to the handlebars, shifting the riders position on the saddle, improving visibility and minimising back, arm and neck fatigue.

The Defy frame geometry is more forgiving on rougher roads thanks to the longer wheelbase and more relaxed angles which also contribute to more relaxed handling/steering. The other is the use of carbon fibre as the frame material. Carbon fibre has many benefits, but a primary benefit is its ability to absorb road vibration, relieving the body of the need to handle it. Carbon fibre can also be laid to maximise comfort, so the actual ride of the bike can be designed to suit a particular type of rider. In this case, it suits a recreational rider rather than a racer. 

Fitted with Shimano 105 components, including compact cranks for easier hill climbing, the Defy is a bike that will satisfy the needs of many riders. We have many customers who arrive at the store with instructions from friends or workmates "Don't get anything less than 105" , well this is not necessarily the best advice as the lower level components are quite good too, but 105 is excellent and with it now being available in such a good frame at such a low price, there is no need to disregard your friends well-intentioned advice. 

This bike is also fitted with hydraulic disc brakes. Even the standard dual pivot brakes work efficiently these days, but hydraulic discs are just brilliant. Wet weather braking is just great, but all braking is so efficient that your attention tends to be on the road ahead, braking is just another function that is taken for granted. It's called confidence.

If the bike sounds appealing, why not come along and take one for a free test ride, so you can see for yourself.
