The perfect blend of confident and capable. This updated all-rounder helps you expand your road riding horizons with a lightweight aluminium frame and performance parts that can handle smooth roads, broken tarmac and everything in between.
Engineered with Giant’s lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame technology, the all-new Contend SL Disc delivers a confident ride quality that’s lightweight, compliant and balanced for a wide variety of road riding enthusiasts. Seamless disc-brake integration gives you more control regardless of road or weather conditions, and the innovative D-Fuse carbon composite seat post dampens road vibrations.

KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
Balanced road geometry
Frame is specifically engineered to produce a balanced, all-rounder feel that blends confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration.
Smooth ride quality
Innovative D-Fuse carbon composite seat post design reduces road vibrations which, combined with a Giant wheel set that can take up to 32c tyres, ensures a smooth ride.
Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and on rough roads.

|Weight||The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.|
