Giant Contend SL 1 2017
Like its predecessor, the Defy 1, the Contend SL 1 combines comfort with speed to create one of the best sportive-ready road bikes for the money.
Upgrades over last year's Giant Defy 1 include internal cable routing for smoother lines, shorter seatstays for even snappier handling and a fancier seat lug to support the super comfortable D-Fuse carbon seatpost.
Giant Aluxx SL frame and Composite fork
Aluxx SL frame tubes are a finer-grain double-butted 6011 aluminium alloy for optimal strength:weight ratio. Its oversized PowerCore bottom bracket helps maximises pedalling efficiency. The result: arguably the best aluminium frame for the money.
Giant's Hybrid Composite fork combines carbon legs for excellent shock damping and steering precision with an OverDrive tapered aluminium steerer to help eliminate brake judder.
Giant D-Fuse Seatpost
The Giant D-shaped carbon composite seatpost does a remarkable job of damping bad vibes that would otherwise be transmitted from unsmooth road surfaces.
Endurance Road Bike Geometry
Giant's classic road bike frame geometry (72.5 degree head tube angle / 73 degree seat tube angle for medium-size frame) delivers a fast, engaging ride with engineered-in comfort. The Contend remains a true road bike. It just happens to be designed to be less stretched out and more comfortable for most riders, especially over longer distances. That's why endurance road bikes such as the Giant Contend are sometimes referred to as comfort road bikes or sportive bikes.
'FOR AMBITIOUS ROAD RIDERS AIMING TO TAKE IT TO 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.'
