It depends on where and how you ride and your capabilities.

If you are going to ride up extreamly challenging hills (mountains) and you are not in good shape you may prefer the gearing available on the bike with the triple crank.

other wise a compact gearing as available on the defy 2 with a better (read lighter) wheel set is probably going to be the better choice for you.

If you think you will be trying to go fast and climb some hills and build your fitness and skills to tackle more challenging rides go defy 2

If you think you will be climbing hills you could not comfortable attempt on a compact
gearing then consider the triple crank.

And of course how will the cost of the bike hit your budget....

Good luck, enjoy the ride and be safe.
