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. - 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 work 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 35mm) and disc-brake integration allow you to tackle a variety of roads and conditions, from smooth pavement to rugged backroads and mountain passes.
Veltrix is a carbon monocoque frame born for competition: quick, easy handling and high performance. Its easy handling makes it suitable for multiple uses. This bike is perfect for the pro but also suitable for those who want to ride at a less competitive pace. These wise uses of carbon fiber along with an optimal sizing of the sections of the frame elements make it a particularly high performance vehicle. About Cinelli: Founded in 1948 by Cino Cinelli, an Italian road cyclist who became a professional racer between 1937 to 1944. Cinelli won the Milan–San Remo in 1943, the Giro di Lombardia in 1938, and the Tour of the Apennines in 1937. Cino became interested in bicycle technology after experiencing mechanical failures during races. He began developing innovative new product designs, but failed to gain manufacturer support from others in the bike industry. So Cino partnered with his brother Giotto, who was producing steel stems and bars in Florence. He soon moved the company to Milan, which had become the center of the Italian cycling industry…and art. In 1978, Antonio Colombo, owner of the world-renowned Columbus tubing, assumed presidency of the company, and in 1997 Cinelli became a division of Gruppo S.r.l. The company is still—to this day—run very much like a family business. And like all lovers of cycling, Antonio still very much enjoys riding bikes.
The Gan S benefits greatly from trickle-down technology from Pinarello's top-tier frames. Made from T700 Carbon, the Gan S delivers the stiffness-to-weight ratio that serious racers demand and the long-ride comfort that more casual riders need. All the requirements of a high-end frame are here, like fast aero tubing, internal cable routing for mechanical and electronic drivetrains, and an integrated, tapered head tube. And of course, the Pinarello feel and styling. Something that can't be qualified really, you just have to ride one for yourself. Once you do, you'll know. This build includes a full 11-speed Shimano Ultegra gruppo, Fulcrum Racing wheels, and a featherweight carbon bar and post.
Prince is the latest evolution of an all-around bike from Pinarello designed for a wide range of users. Its design comes from a wealth of experience and technologies developed for top range models that have been adapted for a less-extreme use, maintaining the unmistakable riding style of the most successful company in the Tour de France. The frame is built with extremely light carbon fiber that's aerodynamically shaped, allowing the bike to slip through the wind. Progressive designs on the fork and seatstays result in a smooth and compliant ride, while the oversized downtube and chainstays keep the bike plenty stiff so it maximizes power transfer from every pedal stroke. The Think2 System allows for seamless integration of electronic shifting controls, and when paired with the internal cable routing results in one of the cleanest setups around. The standard Prince version features a more docile frame intended for those who want high performance as well as a slightly more forgiving ride.
