GIANT CONTEND SL 1 DISC 2020
The perfect blend of confident and capable. This updated all-rounder helps you expand your road riding horizons with a lightweight aluminum frame and performance parts that can handle smooth roads, rough roads and everything in between.
Engineered with Giant’s lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum frame technology, the all-new Contend SL Disc delivers a confident ride quality that’s lightweight, compliant and balanced for a wide variety of road riding enthusiasts. Seamless disc-brake integration gives you more control regardless of road or weather conditions, and the innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost dampens road vibrations. Added tire clearance (up to 32c) means you can now run larger volume tires for a smoother ride quality, and our Giant Tubeless System improves rolling efficiency and grip while minimizing the risk of flats.
Key Performance Factors
Balanced road geometry
Frame is specifically engineered to produce a balanced, all-rounder feel that blends confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration.
Smooth ride quality
Innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost design reduces road shocks and vibrations, and a Giant WheelSystem lets you run tubeless tires up to 32c for a smoother ride quality and reduced risk of flats.
Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
