The Details

The Giant Contend 2 2021 Aluminium Road Bike is designed for aspiring riders aiming to ride a little faster and go a little farther. The bike offers a balanced road geometry, with a frame specifically engineered to produce a balanced all-rounder feel, blending confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration.

In addition, the Contend 2 offers a smooth, efficient ride quality and a quick, agile feel on the road. The innovative D-Fuse seatpost helps reduce road shocks and vibrations, and there’s enough frame and fork clearance to run wider tyres (up to 32mm) to further smooth out the ride. Plus, seamless disc-brake integration including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.

It’s a true all-rounder for ambitious road riders.

  • Quick agile feel on the road
  • D-Fuse seatpost helps reduce road shocks and vibrations
  • Seamless disc-brake integration

Our Verdict

The Giant Contend 2 2021 Aluminium Road Bike is smooth, fast and fun. It’s the perfect choice to help you push the pace, ride more miles, and expand your road riding experience.
