Smooth, fast and fun. This versatile aluminium road bike blends agility and comfort. So you can push the pace, ride further, and have more fun on the road.

Designed and developed for aspiring riders looking to elevate their experience on the road, Contend offers responsive acceleration and a more endurance-oriented rider position. A 27.2mm seatpost helps reduce road shocks and vibrations, and there’s enough frame and fork clearance to run wider tyres (up to 28c) to further smooth out the ride. Engineered and built in Giant’s industry-leading aluminium forging facility, it’s a true all-rounder for ambitious road riders.

Total control

All condition 28c tyres help keep Contend planted in wet weather and on rough roads
