Possible Trade Opportunity, Looking for Advice

I have 2010 Giant Defy Advanced 3. Its got Shimano 105 10S and is in great condition but this year I am looking to begin racing crits and have put it up for trade or sale. I was offered a 2009 Kestrel Talon SL which is full Ultegra 10S and supposedly a more race oriented geometry than the Defy.

Is this a good trade? Assuming of course that both bikes are in equal excellent condition. I haven't heard much about Kestrel's road bikes.

Yes, Kestrel would be an upgrade.

Kestrel has always made great bikes. I'd go for the trade.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
