Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded in a space the size of a single car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz, California. Our first bike, the Tazmon, was a single-pivot dual suspension bike that rattled established sensibilities. At the time full-suspension bikes were far from the norm, and a do-it-all bike (what we’d refer to as ‘trail’ or ‘all-mountain’ now) with rear suspension was considered highly irregular. But our founder, skateboarding legend, Rob Roskopp, wasn’t hog-tied to following trends or being told how to think. Instead he could see that full-suspension was an innovation whose time had come. And ever since we’ve tried to build bikes that allow riders to go further, faster, and higher, for longer..
Designed around the proven endurance geometry of the Defy range and handcrafted with lightweight, smooth-riding Advanced-grade composite, the frame delivers speed, confidence and control. The rear triangle features ultra-thin, flattened seatstays to reduce road vibrations, and the D-Fuse seatpost helps smooth out the road. Disc-brake technology gives you more control in all types of weather. So however far you ride, Defy Advanced helps you stay strong to the finish.. to the finish.
