SMOOTH, SUPERLIGHT AND BUILT FOR COMPLIANCE. FROM GRAN FONDOS TO EPIC SOLO RIDES, THIS NEW, REENGINEERED DEFY ADVANCED PRO REPRESENTS THE PINNACLE OF ENDURANCE ROAD PERFORMANCE.
This all-new high-performance frameset is handcrafted with Giant’s Advanced composite and specifically engineered for endurance road riding. With the perfect blend of stiffness and compliance, it delivers a smooth, fast ride quality for your longest, hardest rides. Its innovative technologies include a D-Fuse composite seatpost and Contact SLR D-Fuse composite handlebar, specially shaped cockpit components that work as a system to add compliance and reduce road shocks and vibrations. The frame is also integrated for disc brakes, with flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, plus clearance for high-volume tires up to 32c. The oversized and tapered OverDrive 2 steerer tube boosts cornering precision, while the MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket deliver precise handling and class-leading pedaling efficiency.
THE ULTIMATE TRAIL BIKE
Topstone is pure gravel goodness. With its high-volume tires, confident rider position and sporty handling, it is ready to smash out big miles on the backroads, explore routes less travelled, or smooth out the chop on your morning commute.
Slate is the bike you never knew you always wanted. It seems like a fever dream. It ain’t no dull gravel grinder, it’s a full-tilt road bike with legit off-road chops. It’s a drop-bar bike with a Lefty front fork. It’s got massive tires, yet still boasts road bike quickness. It’s like nothing you’ve seen before, and yet somehow, it’s everything you hoped it would be. Float over potholes, boost off of curbs, stick impossible lean angles, rail down trails or just bring a little excitement to the next group ride. On Slate, fun is the only mission.
There’s a feeling people get when everything just clicks on a ride, and the Roll is a bike that pulls it all together for you. Take it on a bike path and enjoy the smooth ride afforded by a lightweight frame and Ground Control Positioning. Feel the confidence a wider, more stable tire provides. And ride longer with the Body Geometry science that’s gone into the saddles, grips, and pedals. Get out there, get active, and feel it for yourself.
