The Giant Contend 1 was designed and developed for aspiring riders looking to elevate their experience on the road. It offers responsive acceleration and a more endurance-oriented rider position. A 27.2mm seatpost helps reduce road shocks and vibrations. Also there’s enough frame and fork clearance to run wider tires (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.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
BALANCED ROAD GEOMETRY: A specifically engineered frame produces a balanced, all-rounder feel. Thus blending confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration.
SMOOTH RIDE QUALITY: 27.2mm diameter seatpost design reduces road shocks and vibrations for a smooth ride quality that improves comfort and minimises fatigue.
TOTAL CONTROL: Seamless disc brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles. Thus producing more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.
