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
