The Giant Defy Advanced 2 is a comfortable endurance model with disc wheels and plenty of zip for days when speed is of the essence
Giant’s Defy range has always been enormously popular. Perhaps not as racy as its more senior Giant TCR line, it’s still zippy enough to feel fast but brings all day comfort to boot.
The Giant Defy Advanced 2 is no different, and the fact we wanted to push further and further every time we rode it is exactly why it’s on the Cycling Weekly Editor’s Choice 2017 list.

NEVERS, France (VN) — When Giant Bicycles first launched their Propel aero bike four years ago the only weak spot
in an otherwise fantastic, fast package was the brakes, a pair of mushy
mini-Vs that served to decrease both drag and the ability to stop. That
issue is now behind us. Giant’s all-new, completely redesigned range of
Propel bikes is equipped with Shimano disc brakes, and Giant says
they’re faster than ever — and faster than the competition.
The Giant Propel Advanced Disc range has been in development for
three years and the new disc bike was first spotted in July at the Tour
de France under Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb). Matthews sprinted to
third on stage 7 at the Tour atop the new Propel Disc.
Giant started with the discs and built the bike around them. That
means the Propel has an entirely new geometry and tube shaping compared
to the old model. The company brought nothing from the previous
generation rim-brake Propel, it says. Leaving those v-brakes behind is
just fine, but did they hit the mark elsewhere?
With new Kona models arriving over the
next couple of weeks, we’re doing a series of posts here to
introduce the new bikes. Keep an eye here for rad new bikes and
updates to current models. Next up: the updated (and damn sweet if we
