Choose the longer route. Climb higher mountains. This smooth-riding endurance road bike is purpose-built to help you tackle long-distance road rides on all types of roads. Handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite material, the Defy Advanced is engineered with tube shapes that are optimized to absorb road shocks and vibrations. Even with its smooth ride quality, it still delivers a lightweight, stiff and lively feel when you’re climbing, accelerating and cornering. It’s made with a specific carbon layup to give it an efficient, high-performance ride quality that helps you push new limits of endurance. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system also help reduce road vibrations, adding to its smooth, compliant feel on the road. A tubeless Giant WheelSystem and tires boost speed and efficiency with a reduced risk of flats. And for added control, it features integrated disc brakes with flat-mount disc brake tabs and 12mm thru-axles. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Engineered compliance - Advanced Composite frame is specifically engineered for endurance road riding, delivering a smoother ride quality and less fatigue on long rides. The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar system works seamlessly with the frame to absorb road shocks and vibrations. Total control - Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads. Versatility - Endurance road geometry, added tire clearance (up to 32c) and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions, from smooth pavement to rugged backroads and mountain passes.
Training, racing, pushing it to the limit. Whether you’re attacking the field or digging deep for a new PR, the new TCR Advanced Disc is lighter, stiffer, and faster with strategic aero tube shaping, added tire clearance, and integrated disc brake technology. Reengineered with updated aerodynamic tube shaping in the headtube, downtube, and fork, plus added clearance for larger diameter tires (up to 32mm), the new TCR Advanced Disc delivers outstanding on-the-road efficiency. The Variant seatpost adds just enough compliance to give it a balanced, race-tuned feel on the road. And with its integrated disc-brake technology, including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, it’s an all-weather, all-conditions race machine to keep you at the front of the pack. Class-leading efficiency - With an impressive stiffness-to-weight ratio and updated aero tube shaping, this frameset is engineered to give road racers and riders superior climbing capabilities, aerodynamic efficiency, and sprint 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. The result is a TCR that’s faster than ever in sprints and solo situations. 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. - Frame: Advanced-Grade Composite, disc - Fork: Advanced-Grade Composite, OverDrive steerer, disc - Wheels: Giant SLR-2 42 Carbon Disc WheelSystem (F:42mm, R:42mm) - Shifters: Shimano Ultegra - Crankset: Shimano RS-510, 36/52
Those who live on a strict diet of road require a bike that can deliver the ultimate all-round ride. From cobbles to concrete, coasts to climbs, the R is engineered to provide maximum performance and rideability. As standard, the R is a pro-level machine. Raced in the Hell of the North by Team Sunweb, it proves that nothing we make is anything less than high performance. Light and stiff, it retains compliance where you need it for long days in the saddle. The geometry is designed for responsive and stable handling without sacrificing comfort. This is a bike you can trust, whether attacking out of the saddle or on the inside of a downhill corner. Elite Fit Our Elite Fit is based on extensive observations and analysis of riders' positions. It offers a wide range of positions for all athletes, from endurance riders to Pro-Tour racers, without compromising handling, comfort, or performance. Squoval Max Squoval Max tubes are part of a library of tube shapes that combine the attributes of a square with an oval but with a more aerodynamic leading edge. With these unique shapes, we dial-in the ideal balance of stiffness and weight in specific areas of a frame while reducing aerodynamic drag. BBright Cervelo developed BBright to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. With the BBright system, larger-sized tubes are used in the seat tube, down tube, and left-hand chainstay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedaling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright is compatible with all major crank standards. - R-Series full carbon frame and fork - Shimano Ultegra drivetrain - DT Swiss P1800 32 Spline wheels - Cervelo SP19 carbon seatpost
WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN R5 has one job—get to the top, fast. But for all the glory and fanfare that comes with a summit finish, they're rarely the only climb of the day. And while a race isn't usually won on a descent, they can certainly be lost. A climbing bike that can't carve a hairpin is a bit like a cup of decaf coffee. This is the fourth iteration of the R5, and while weight and stiffness have varied over the years, the handling, poise, and unmatched prowess on a descent have been consistent since day one.
The Via Nirone 7 is where it all began for Bianchi—the address of Edoardo Bianchi's first workshop in milan. Start your own cycling story with our entry-level aluminum bike, designed around the proven Bianchi endurance geometry.
