Product Description

With its longer wheelbase and slightly taller headtube for endurance positioning, Defy Composite gives you a lightweight, smooth riding feel that makes the road disappear. Crafted from Giant’s Composite frame material, it features innovative technologies including the PowerCore bottom bracket and OverDrive headtube for stiff pedalling efficiency and razor-sharp handling. The frame is also RideSense-ready, for use with Giant’s wireless ANT+ data device.

Frame Technology

A Composite-grade composite frame forms the heart of this smooth and fast bike. Laid-up by hand, every Defy Composite adds road-smoothing comfort to aggressive racing performance. Whether you're sprinting for primes or launching a long solo break, Defy Composite is engineered to let you hammer out longer distances with greater ease. Each frameset features:

  • OverDrive steerer tube system for additional steering stiffness and control
  • MegaDrive downtube to tie together the massive headtube and bottom bracket
  • PowerCore bottom bracket for outstanding pedalling stiffness
  • Vector seatpost - aerodynamic and tuned for long-distance comfort

Compared to TCR, most frame sizes feature:

  • A taller headtube for more upright positioning
  • 0.5 degree more relaxed head angle for more confident cornering and descending
  • Longer wheelbase for additional comfort and control
