The perfect blend of confident and capable. This updated all-rounder helps you expand your road riding horizons with a lightweight aluminium frame and performance parts that can handle smooth roads, rough roads and everything in between.

Engineered with Giant’s lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium 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 tyre clearance (up to 32c) means you can now run larger volume tyres for a smoother ride quality, and our Giant Tubeless System improves rolling efficiency and grip while minimising the risk of flats.
