Giant Defy Advanced Pro 3 2021

Stu Kerton

Ditch the tyres and you have a fast, sweet-handling endurance machine that doesn't panic at speed

  • Great ride quality from the frameset
  • Decent tyre clearance
  • Geometry gives smooth handling
  • Tyres feel a little 'wooden'
  • Not the greatest value spec-wise

Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1 review

Peter Stuart

Giant’s latest Defy is future-proof, versatile, fast and far less expensive than equivalently specced alternatives

  • Fast
  • 32mm tyres
  • Predictable handling
  • Well priced
  • Slightly heavy
  • Fiddly seatpost bolt

Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1 review

Warren Rossiter

A gloriously accomplished blend of smoothness and speed. Buy if you want a bike capable of the longest rides, on any terrain, that’s as capable going up as it is confident coming down

  • Comfort in spades and handling finesse
  • Saddle is just okay and bigger bikes need a 160mm rotor on the front
