Giant's Defy Advanced Pro 2 brings comfort to the go-fast scene. This svelte, race-ready rig boasts a tuned composite layup, tall head tube, and relaxed geometry that offer new levels of comfort and control. Giant's full composite OverDrive 2 tapered fork nullifies road buzz and guides you with authority. The wheelset does, too, with Giant's SL 1 hoops and P-SL 1 tires loving the corners and keeping rolling resistance low. Plus, Shimano's legendary Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain provides pro-level shifting and braking. Of course, the Giant finishing kit perfectly matches a bike of this caliber.
Giant’s RideSense transmitter is seamlessly integrated into the left chainstay to wirelessly send speed and cadence information to any ANT+ compatible computer (the transmitter is easily removed if you choose).
Giant’s OverDrive 2 delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug
