Performing your best requires putting in the miles. Designed and engineered with our unique Dynamic Cycling Fit philosophy to fit your body and riding style plus Particle Flow Technology combined with a lightweight carbon composite base, full-carbon rails, and new lightweight, High-Elastic foam, the Contact SLR saddle allows you to stay on the road longer and ride at peak performance.
Recognizing the importance of proper saddle fit, Giant created a platform that considers the unique and variable conditions of a cyclist’s connection to the saddle while riding. We call this philosophy Dynamic Cycling Fit. Whether you choose road, XC, trail, enduro or downhill you will experience the comfort of a saddle that feels like it was made just for you.
COMPACT CARBON COMPOSITE BASE
By combining our advanced carbon material and compact structural design, Giant’s New Compact Carbon Composite Saddle Base allows a positive amount of flex during pedaling and boasts a 30% compliance upgrade from previous iterations.
All new high-density and high-elastic foam padding improves overall comfort while maintaining sufficient support between the rider and the saddle base. The high-elastic foam also delivers 30% more shock absorption than our previous foam, resulting in greater comfort and better performance.
Giant’s free-flowing high-elastic particles are inserted into two separate pockets that mold to each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition to provide further comfort and support. The particles deform more easily under pressure, providing superior comfort and high rebound performance, resulting in reduced pressure points across a broader contact area.
Abrasion Resistant Edge
Improved durability down to the smallest detail. Giant has designed a lightweight, vacuum-formed carbon composite material that surrounds the saddle edge to protect crucial wear points and help prevent scuffing.
Pressure Relief Channel
Each DCF shape (Forward, Neutral, Upright) features a smooth curve and shape-specific channel to reduce pressure on the perineum and increase blood circulation, resulting in superior comfort.
Giant Contact SLR and Contact SL saddles are available in three shapes; Forward, Neutral and Upright. These three shapes are the result of the Dynamic Cycling Fit philosophy to fit each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition to the saddle while riding. The result, better fit for greater performance.

Dynamic Cycling Fit
Echipament de ciclism care funcționează cel mai bine în mișcare. Aceasta este ideea din spatele Dynamic Cycling Fit (DCF), o filozofie de design globală care ridică noile produse premium din colecția de echipamente Giant la un nivel mai înalt de performanță, potrivire și confort.
Particulele elastice cu curgere liberă ale Giant sunt introduse în două buzunare separate care se adaptează la condiția unică de contact pelvin a fiecărui călăreț pentru a oferi confort și sprijin suplimentar. Particulele se deformează mai ușor sub presiune, oferind confort superior și performanță ridicată la rebound, rezultând puncte de presiune reduse pe o zonă de contact mai largă.
