The Giant Defy Advanced Pro 0 is $5999.

What does this mean for you? The Defy (or aluminium Contend) can take the intrepid cyclist off the smooth tarmac and onto the 2WD dirt roads that stretch far and wide.

And the Defy and Contend are bikes that are well-suited for adventurous road rides, seeking images to light up your Instagram account.

The Giant Contend SL 1 Disc is $1999

New for 2018 is a complete move to disc brakes for the Defy Advanced and Contend SL ranges. Only the Contend 1 and 2 will be rim brake models.
