Cycling Active Calls Defy "A Sportive Classic"!

18 May 2016

The new Defy endurance road bike is featured in the June issue of the U.K.-based magazine Cycling Active, receiving a fantastic 9/10 ranking and being commended for looking and feeling “like a much more expensive bike than it actually is.” 

The Cycling Active feature looked at affordable road bikes around $1000 or less. 

The Defy series offers a smooth ride for long days in the saddle. The endurance geometry is perfectly suited to sportive riding, and one tester noted that it was the “most comfortable bike on test” compared with similar road models from B’Twin, Specialized, Planet X and Forme.

Overall, the Defy was lauded for offering a great ride at a superb value, summed up as “a sportive classic that punches well above its weight”.

To read the full review, pick up the June issue of Cycling Active magazine. Or go to their website to access a digital version.
