Important lead time information
Where delivery times are stated as an ETA month this is based on the latest information from the manufacturer. These dates should be treated as a guide and may be subject to change. Due to an increase in global demand for bicycles and the disruption in supply during the COVID-19 pandemic supply chains have become very strained. Lead times are based on factory and shipping schedules both of which can be disrupted by delays in component supply and shipping/port capacity.
Should you place a future order with us for a bicycle we will monitor the bike’s ETA and keep you informed of any changes.

Size Options & Purchase
This Giant Contend AR 1 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Giant's Contend AR builds on the popularity and success of Contend but with more capabilities for riding on rough roads. With disc brake integration, added frame and fork clearance (up to 38C) and Giant Tubeless System wheels offer there's the additional control and comfort required to tackle any road.
Built around a lightweight ALUXX aluminium frame with a full composite fork the Contend AR has an incredibly light fuselage. The full composite front fork gives a smooth ride whilst at the rear a D-Fuse composite seatpost dampens road vibrations producing a more enjoyable ride experience and minimising fatigue. The disc brake integration is seamless and includes flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles for more consistent braking power and better control, even in wet weather and on rough roads. Gear cables are also integrated for a super slick look.
The Contend AR's geometry has been designed to produce a balanced, all-rounder feel that blends confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration. This is a true all-rounder for road riders who have a thirst for adventure.
Please note: This model features tubeless ready wheels and tyres which offer a superior ride and less rolling resistance than traditional innertubes. This system requires tyre sealant to function correctly and this will be fitted in our workshop prior to despatch. The nature of this sealant means that the tyre may not be fully sealed until it has been ridden a short distance and therefore the bicycle may arrive with reduced pressure in the tyres. Please check the bicycle's tyres are inflated to the recommended pressure before cycling.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
