ULTRALIGHT CARBON ENDURANCE ROAD BIKE FRAME With greater lateral stiffness and a superlight weight of just 785g (size medium, frame only), this is the lightest, most efficient Defy frame ever. It's paired with a new Advanced SL-grade fork that weighs 350g, 15 percent lighter than the previous generation Defy fork. This frameset also includes the new D-Fuse SLR seatpost, which adds 40 percent more road-smoothing compliance compared to the previous generation, and two bottle cages. ADVANCED SL COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY - Professional Grade raw carbon fiber is woven in our composite factory to produce our lightest, stiffest and highest quality frames. This is the technology used by Giant's pro racers in almost every cycling discipline. COMPACT ROAD DESIGN - Introduced by Giant with the professional Team ONCE in the 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit. D-FUSE SEATPOST - The proprietary "D" shaped composite seatpost damps vibration, resulting in a smooth, compliant ride. OVERDRIVE AERO - Found inside the head tube of the all-new Propel range, the D-shaped fork steerer tube and corresponding spacers provide an extremely aerodynamic, easier to service system of internally routed brake and derailleur cables. POWERCORE - A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design (92-millimeter wide for off-road bikes). Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside. *38mm max tire size*
Unleash your sprint with 200 meters to go. Close a gap, chase back, launch a solo attack. This new aero road machine is made for the moments that count. More aero, more adjustable, more ways to win. INTEGRATED AERODYNAMICS - AeroSystem Shaping, a result of CFD analysis and dynamic wind-tunnel testing, optimizes aerodynamic performance at every yaw angle. The truncated ellipse airfoil tube shapes produces outstanding overall aero performance. EASIER ADJUSTABILITY - All-new cable routing through the handlebar and frame makes it quicker and easier to adjust or change cockpit components and fine-tune performance and riding position. RACE-WINNING EFFICIENCY - Advanced SL-grade composite frameset features Giant's pro-level composite materials and manufacturing processes. The result is 225 grams of weight savings compared to the previous generation and an even greater stiffness-to-weight advantage. ADVANCED SL COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY - Professional Grade raw carbon fiber is woven in our composite factory to produce our lightest, stiffest and highest quality frames. This is the technology used by Giant's pro racers in almost every cycling discipline. AEROSYSTEM SHAPING TECHNOLOGY - Through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance. OVERDRIVE AERO - Found inside the head tube of the all-new Propel range, the D-shaped fork steerer tube and corresponding spacers provide an extremely aerodynamic, easier to service system of internally routed brake and derailleur cables.
From the Tour de France to your local KOM, no other road bike in the world does it all better than this legendary winner. Chosen by World Tour pros like Simon Yates, it's the ultimate all-rounder for the performance obsessed. CLASS-LEADING EFFICIENCY - Combining best-in-class stiffness-to-weight with strategically placed aero tube shaping, this frameset is engineered for faster climbing, explosive acceleration and unyielding pedaling stiffness for race-winning performance. ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS - This is where the TCR's most quantifiable gains can be found compared to previous generation models. Every tube shape was analyzed, engineered and tested to create an overall structure with significantly lower drag at a wider range of yaw angles. TOTAL CONTROL - Integrated disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful stopping power and modulation for added control in variable weather and road conditions. Flat mounts and new thru-axles boost stiffness and improve overall handling, while added frame and fork clearance allows for larger diameter tires up to 32mm.
This is a no-holds-barred triathlon machine—no restrictions, no limitations. The CADEX Tri frameset is designed, engineered and put to the test by the world’s fastest triathletes in a bold quest to push the sport forward. Created in conjunction with Ironman World Champion Kristian Blummenfelt’s attempt to break the seven-hour mark for the Ironman distance, a project dubbed Sub7, it features a radical monocoque frame, wide-spread fork legs and horizontal seatstays. The massive down tube doubles as a race-ready storage system, making hydration and nutrition easily accessible. And its wide-ranging adjustability makes it quick and easy to dial in over 1,000 fit configurations for personalized performance PERSONALIZED FIT - The CADEX Tri frameset makes it easier for athletes of all heights and body dimensions to achieve a perfect fit. Using real-world dimensional as well as stack and height data collected from pro and amateur triathletes, CADEX created five frame sizes and then configured ways for any rider, no matter what frame size they choose, to easily adjust critical fit factors. ENDURANCE AERODYNAMICS - Aero performance goes beyond wind-tunnel data. Using AeroSystem Shaping Technology to create a radical wide-spread, bladed fork, horizontal seatstays and other drag-reducing frame features—along with optimal rider position for Ironman racing—CADEX Tri is about achievable real-world gains. RACE-READY INTEGRATION - The unique chassis of the CADEX Tri frameset—a massive down tube with no top tube—offers a complete hydration, nutrition and tool storage solution fully integrated into the frame. This design lets riders hydrate and refuel quickly and conveniently from the seated aero riding position while remaining totally self-sufficient on the course. TOTAL EFFICIENCY - Engineered with the highest grade T1000 carbon fiber and cutting-edge layup techniques, the CADEX Tri frameset boasts class-leading pedaling and torsional stiffness with a total weight of just 4577 grams. Combined with ultra-adaptable fit, groundbreaking endurance aero technology, and a completely integrated hydration and nutrition system, the result is zero watts wasted. COMPLETE TRAVEL SOLUTION - The CADEX Tri frameset minimizes the amount of disassembly and reassembly needed and comes with a purpose-built, high-impact resistant Topeak travel case featuring airport-friendly wheels, a full interior protection system and built-in work stand.
