Giant Defy Advanced 1
The Giant Defy Advanced 1 is an endurance road bike designed for long-distance rides. Its frame is made from advanced-grade composite and has a full-composite OverDrive steerer, with Shimano Ultegra hydraulic brakes and a Shimano GRX RX-810 max 34T rear derailleur. The Giant P-R2 Disc wheelset has a 22mm inner rim width, and the bike comes with a Giant Gavia Fondo 1, tubeless, 700x32c front tire. The bike has received top reviews from bike magazines and is equipped with good groupset components. Its Shimano Ultegra brakes are said to be the best in class.
Smooth-riding endurance bike that offers hydraulic disc brakes and plenty of value
Barring the cable routing issues, there's no doubting that the Defy Advanced 1 has one of the best ride qualities in the endurance category. It almost perfectly balances performance and comfort and the spec list at this price point is almost unbeatable.
- Cable routing
VERDICT: Giant’s latest Defy is future-proof, versatile, fast and far less expensive than equivalently specced alternatives
A brilliant bike let down by its slightly disappointing brake system
- Smooth ride, great position and good value with it
- The cable-hydraulic brake system lacks feel and adds weight up front
