Giant Contend 2

Designed and developed for aspiring riders looking to elevate their experience on the road, the all-new Contend is the result of a dedicated approach to road performance. Born in Giant’s own in-house aluminium forging facility and engineered with ALUXX aluminium technology, it features geometry that’s specifically aimed at confident performance in variable terrain and road conditions. It’s the perfect blend of speed, comfort and control.

iCycle review: This is a new offering from Giant as an entry level, but by no means unexciting road bike. The bike uses the award winning ALUXX frame with geometry to give the rider a very sure footed and great handling ride”.

Giant Contend 1

The Contend 1 uses the same frame technology as the Contend 2, but come equipped with a Sora groupset giving the rider that little bit more choice when it comes to gearing ratios.  In short, the feedback that the Sora gearing system delivers to a rider helps to increase the level of ride quality from these great all-rounders.

Giant Contend SL2

FOR AMBITIOUS ROAD RIDERS AIMING TO TAKE IT THE NEXT LEVEL. LONGER, FASTER RIDES AND MORE FUN AROUND EVERY CORNER.

This new all-rounder road bike is engineered to take aspiring road riders to new heights. Utilising lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium technology, the all-new Contend SL blends quick acceleration with stable handling and a smooth ride quality. Giant’s proven OverDrive tapered steerer tube and PowerCore bottom bracket technologies deliver precise handling and maximum pedalling efficiency. The D-Fuse composite seatpost dampens road vibration to minimise fatigue and improve the overall ride quality.

iCycle review: “We were surprised at how light, how this bike accelerates and, how well the bike flowed on the road.  The new Tiagra 10 speed shifting system on this bike feels far superior to 105 shifting system which used to hold the 10 speed tag from Shimano.  This has to be one of the best genuinely lightweight aluminium road bikes available, the choice of disc or non-disc options with this bike for the price make it an absolute winner”.

Giant Contend SL1

iCycle review:  “This is easily one of the bike packages around for the rider that wants to get the most out of the bike at all time.  The Shimano 105 system delivers silky shifting, the braking response and rebound from the brake callipers is so crisp, and along with the PR2wheelset the bike is beautifully balanced. This is definitely a bike that is made to be ridden full on”.
