Giant's Defy Advanced SL 1 combines ultra-light performance and compliance for epic days and every day. 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 P-SL0 hoops and P-SLR1 tires loving the corners and keeping your rolling resistance low. Plus, Shimano's legendary Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain provides pro-level shifting and their hydraulic-disc brakes deliver incredible stopping. 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
