This Giant Contend SL 1 2017 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Giant's Contend SL 1 features a Shimano 105 groupset and PR2 wheels as upgrades over the Contend SL 2.
New for 2017, Giant's Contend platform is designed for aspiring riders looking to elevate their experience on the road. With new geometry aimed at confident performance in variable terrain and a lightweight Aluxx SL aluminium frame Contend is perfect for novices or experienced riders alike. Featuring compact frame geometry which Giant pioneered two decades ago, offers low weight, great lateral stiffness and a great fit.
The Contend SL 1's aluminium uses Giant's Aluxx SL tubeset which uses a 6011 alloy for a higher strength to weight ration than standard Aluxx and also benefits from Double butting and smooth welding techniques.
The Contend SL 1 is perfect for commuting, spotives and all round road riding.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
