Giant Contend SL 2 Disc 2017

The Contend SL 2 features Giant's new Conduct hydraulic disc brakes to create a sportive-ready road bike offering Absolute Braking Stability.

Giant Conduct hydraulic disc brakes
Giant's new brake is initially cable controlled from the Shimano Tiagra STI brake lever, but only to its reservoir, which is hidden under the handlebar stem from where a hydraulic line connects it to the caliper. The benefit of this system is that you get the improved power and modulation of a hydraulic brake while the caliper is much neater than previous hybrid cable/hydraulic systems for road bikes.

See Giant's own video.

More upgrades over its predecessor, last year's Giant Defy 2 Disc, include internal cable routing for smoother lines, shorter chainstays 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.

'LIGHT AND LIVELY ROAD PERFORMANCE WITH AN ADDED BOST OF COMPLIANCE AND CONTROL. SMOOTH, FAST AND FUN TO RIDE.
The perfect foray into competitive road performance, the all-new Contend SL Disc offers a smooth riding experience to aspiring road riders. Built on Giant's industry-leading ALUXX SL aluminium technology, this all-rounder blends speedy acceleration with overall comfort and control. Seamless disc-brake integration means confident braking in variable road and weather conditions. The innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost dampens road vibration for a better ride quality. The proven combination of an OverDrive tapered steerer tube and PowerCore bottom bracket ensures precise handling and maximum pedalling efficiency'
