The Contend 2 aluminium road bike has been revamped to give it a well-rounded performance ride quality. Therefore it’s the perfect choice to help you push the pace. As well as ride more miles while expanding your road riding experience.
Designed and developed for aspiring riders looking to elevate their experience on the road, Contend offers responsive acceleration and a confident rider position. Most importantly, the innovative D-Fuse seatpost helps reduce road shocks and vibrations. There’s also enough frame and fork clearance to run wider tyres (up to 32c) 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.
Key Performance Factors of the Contend 2:
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 seatpost design reduces road shocks and vibrations, and a Giant WheelSystem lets you run tyres up to 32c for a smoother ride quality.
Total control: Mounts for both rack and mudguards ensure that the Contend can deal with any type of riding no matter what the weather.
ALUXX-grade butted aluminium frame: This Performance level frame material features 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to produce strong, lightweight frame-sets for a variety of different bikes and riding styles.
Compact Road Design: Compact Road revolutionised the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping top-tube (from the head-tube to the seat-tube) creates smaller front and rear triangles. Therefore you get a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
OverDrive Steerer: Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Tubeless Ready: Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
Colours: Gloss Electric Blue or Metallic Black
