Engineered with Giant's lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame technology, the Contend SL delivers a confident ride quality that's lightweight, compliant and balanced for a wide variety of road riding enthusiasts. Rim brakes offer low weight and easy maintenance and the innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost dampens road vibrations.
The Giant Contend SL is designed with a super lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame and an Advanced-grade full composite fork to deliver a balanced blend of confident, comfortable rider positioning and nimble road handling and acceleration. The Contend SL also benefits from several trickle down technologies from some of Giant's higher end models such as; an OverDrive steerer tube for precision cornering capabilities, MegaDrive downtube for torsional frame stiffness, PowerCore bottom bracket area for pedalling efficiency, and internal cable routing for a clean look and performance.
The Giant Contend SL is the perfect partner for day long rides or commutes. The riding position is tried and tested and offers a sporting yet comfortable position.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.

Sizing information is provided as a general guide only. This is based on the average rider riding the bicycle in the style for which it is intended. This takes no account of a rider's personal proportions, physique, flexibility and biomechanics. If your height places you on, or near, a bicycle size step then we recommend you consider both sizes. All bicycles offer a range of handlebar and saddle adjustment which will enable you to fine tune your riding position once the correct size has been established. If you are unsure on sizing, we strongly recommend you visit our store so we can assist you. Pedal On offers advice and information on sizing in good faith, the final decision and responsibility on which size to purchase is yours.
