Giant Contend SL Disc 1
The Contend ($1,315 direct from Giant) is an aluminum road bike designed to get you out riding at an affordable price. A carbon fork and seatpost reduce road chatter and lighten the overall build . We are fans of Shimano’s 105 components and the Contend comes built up with Shimano’s latest 11-speed set-up. Giant uses high-quality house brand hydraulic disc brakes on the Contend, which gives you solid technology at an affordable price point.
The Contend also includes Giant’s house brand wheels, tires, and other parts. Taken together, the Contend offers a high-quality build at a very competitive price. It’s one of the lower-priced Shimano 105 bikes we’ve seen, which makes it an excellent choice for wherever your road-riding plans may take you. We especially like the sleek lines of the aluminum frame and the understated graphics on the Contend. Note: Giant requires you to take delivery at an authorized local dealer for assembly.Back to top
