Giant Defy Advanced 1 2014 Road Bike

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates may be given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.

FULL PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
  • Brand : Giant
  • Season : Current
  • Code : 4010452
  • Weight : 10KG
  • Designed to meet the needs of hard, fast races and long, gruelling rides the Giant Defy Advanced 1 combines an advanced grade composite frame with Giant's endurance geometry to offer the perfect blend of stiffness, weight and road smoothing compliance.

    The Giant Defy Advanced 1's frame is packed full of performance features including an OverDrive 2 steerer tube to boost front end stiffness and control to create a razor-sharp handling bike. The PowerCore bottom bracket area turns your power into positive forward motion with minimal reduction making the Giant Defy Advanced 1 one of the most efficient road bikes available.

    Equipped to the Giant Defy Advanced 1 Road Bike is a host of premium components from leading brands including a smooth, reliable and race ready 11 speed Ultegra groupset combined with a selection of Giant's premium contact finishing kit to create an affordable, professional grade racing bike.

    RideSense

    Giant’s all-new chainstay-integrated, wireless data transmitter. The removable transmitter sends wheel-speed and cadence information directly to any ANT+ compatible computer.

    OverDrive 2

    As the first manufacturer to bring the tapered headtube to market - with the 2006 Glory mountain bike - Giant knows a thing or two about inventing solutions for improved steering precision. The original OverDrive technology resulted in groundbreaking stiffness-to-weight ratios, and now Giant is doing it again with an all-new standard: OverDrive 2.

    Compact Road Design

    In 1997, when riders on the legendary Spanish pro team ONCE rolled up to the start of a race on a compact geometry Giant bike, the competition didn’t quite know what to think. For decades before that moment, the design and geometry of road bikes had remained essentially the same. Giant’s new approach was a radical departure, and we called it Compact Road design.

    Advanced Composite

    High-performance T-700 raw carbon fiber is used to produce custom composite material in Giant’s own composite factory. Extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant, these handcrafted frames feature the monocoque construction.

      Rutland Cycling - Our 30 day test ride

      All the convenience of buying online, without the risk

      When you buy a new bike at full RRP from rutlandcycling.com, you can now benefit from the added reassurance of our Rutland 30-day test ride. Once your new bike arrives, you can ride it as your own for 30 days, and we're confident you'll love it! However, if it's not right for you, we'll exchange it for another model. (There's a nominal charge of £10 for us to collect your bike - just make sure you keep the box your bike arrived in.)

      On which bikes is the 30-day test ride available?

      The Rutland 30-day test ride is available on all full price, non-discounted bikes available for home delivery on rutlandcycling.com. It is not available on discounted or special offer bikes, click and collect bikes, bikes bought on finance, bikes bought through Cyclescheme, or bikes bought in store. This offer is only available on bikes delivered to mainland UK addresses.

      How does the test ride work?

      Your 30-day test ride starts from the date your bike is delivered. You must notify us by email within 30 calendar days of delivery that you intend to return the bike within this scheme. This offer applies to all bikes purchased on or after 14th August 2014. To ensure you remain eligible, we would ask that you adopt a 'fair usage' attitude during the test ride period, and make sure there is no damage to the bike outside of the minimal wear you would expect from a bike ridden for 30 days or a few rides. Please note that any damage to the bike, including damage from incorrect assembly, will invalidate the test ride.

      How many times can I use the 30-day test ride?

      We will allow up to two exchanges within this scheme.
