With less fatigue you can ride further. The Giant Defy Advanced 3 is an endurance road bike that offers an incredibly smooth ride thanks to the engineered compliance of the carbon composite frame combined with the D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system. This all helps to reduce fatigue, especially on sportives and long rides on mixed road surfaces.

Choose the longer route. Climb higher mountains. This all-new endurance road bike is purpose built to help you tackle long-distance road rides in all types of conditions. It’s smooth, it’s efficient and it’s fast.
Engineered compliance: Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding, delivering a smooth ride quality ensuring less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system work seamlessly with the frame to absorb road shocks and vibrations.
Total control: Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and on rough roads.
Versatility: Endurance road geometry, added tyre clearance (up to 32c) and disc brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions.
Advanced Composite Technology: High-performance grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and moulded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
Compact Road Design: Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the1990s, Compact Road revolutionised the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping top tube (from the head tube to the seat tube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
Compliance Tuned Technology
Specific composite layup and tube shaping, including ultra-thin and flattened seat stays, a low seat stay/seat tube junction and thin, slightly curved fork legs combine for a balanced, compliant ride quality and reduced rider fatigue.
D-Fuse: Named for the shape of the seatpost and handlebar, the lightweight D fuse components work as part of the bike to significantly reduce road vibrations and aid compliance.
Disc brake integration: The frame and fork are engineered specifically for disc brakes for reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
OverDrive: Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Giant Tubeless System: Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tyres delivers improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
