Explore your world on two wheels with Giant's Defy 5. Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame lets the Defy zoom up the climbs while muting road vibration for a super-smooth, refined ride. Beyond just light and smooth, you'll love the tall head tube and stable geometry that allows for a more comfortable position so you feel great through every mile. This Defy boasts Giant's lightweight S-R2 rims, 16-speed Shimano components for crisp shifting, Tektro brakes for confident stopping, as well as reliable Giant components.
