Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1 review

Cyclist: Defy Advanced Pro "The Best of All Worlds"

The UK-based website Cyclist recently reviewed the new Defy Advanced Pro road bike, giving it a near-perfect ranking of 4.5 (out of 5) stars.

Tester Matthew Page praised the ride quality of the composite endurance road bike, writing that it “feels light and fast, encouraging you to push harder and go faster, but with a little more comfort athan most standard racing bikes.”
In the review, Page credits the purpose-built frame of the Defy Advanced Pro for its smooth handling on the road:
“Giant uses compact geometry, with a low-slung top tube giving extra clearance” Page writes. “This has a positive effect on rear-end comfort with the extra length of seatpost giving a little flex that helps smooth out the bumps. Downhill, the handling is very typical of Giant bikes. It is neutral and stable, and this is an easy bike to descend on.”
