In an in-depth new review on its website, road.cc test editor David Murray details all of the new technologies on the Defy Advanced SL 0 model, including its superlight, endurance-specific composite frameset and disc brakes, and he analyzes the bike's performance on the road.
“The ride is absolutely stunning,” Murray writes. “In this 7.29kg superbike build, it’s a very special bike. The performance feels like a racing bike with responsive handling but its main strength is how stable and balanced it is. It manages to offer the sort of performance you’d demand of a race bike, but with the longer wheelbase producing a wonderful planted feel at any speed, and especially through the faster corners. It’s a race bike you can ride comfortably all day.”
