2015 Giant Defy road bikes with TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes

Giant makes a move forward, including disc brakes in the Giant Defy road bike model, becoming the first major bike brand to use only disc brakes in the entire Defy Advanced line-up. Cheaper alloy Giant Defy models will be sold with conventional road brakes, while the Defy Advanced model will get TRP Spyre mechanical brake callipers.

The TRP Spyre is a fully mechanical disc brake calliper with dual actuated pistons thanks to a ball bearing mechanism, aiming for an effective, powerful and simple brake system.
This dual piston system allows better adjustment and alignment of the brake pads, extending the pad life.
The Spyre range is fully compatible with all existing lever and lever/shifter combinations.
Two different models are available, with an aluminium brake arch in the cheaper version, and carbon arch in the most expensive Spyre SLC version. Using this carbon arch the total weight of the calliper is reduced by 8 grams.

The TRP Spyre, Hylex and HYRD road/cross disc brakes use the same pad type (see below).
