The 2017 Defy range includes three series of endurance road bikes. Built to give you an advantage on long rides and challenging terrain, each one features proven endurance geometry, disc brakes, and innovative features for your most demanding days in the saddle.
The new Defy Advanced SL features peak performance to push yourself farther. Centuries, grand fondos, rough roads and challenging terrain—the Advanced SL is the ultimate machine for your most demanding days in the saddle. The frame is handcrafted with superlight, professional-grade Advanced SL composite that’s engineered with endurance geometry. Innovative features including flat-mount disc brake integration, 12mm front and rear thru-axles and the vibration-damping D-Fuse integrated seatpost deliver control and compliance.
The new Defy Advanced Pro features superior engineering for a silky smooth ride. The Advanced-grade composite frame features endurance geometry with the perfect blend of light weight, stiffness and road-smoothing compliance. Disc brake technology with 12mm front and rear thru-axles gives you total control, even on rough roads and poor conditions. The D-Fuse seatpost smoothes out road vibrations, and the PowerCore bottom bracket turns every pedal stroke into positive forward motion.
From daily rides to gran fondos and epic solo adventures, the new Defy Advanced helps you stay strong to the finish. Designed around the proven endurance geometry of the Defy range and handcrafted with lightweight, smooth-riding Advanced-grade composite, this frame delivers speed, confidence and control. The rear triangle features ultra-thin, flattened seatstays to reduce road vibrations, and the D-Fuse seatpost helps smooth out the road. And new flat-mount disc brakes plus 12mm thru-axle hubs give you more control than ever in all types of conditions.
