The Details

The Giant Contend AR 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 AR 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, mechanical disc brakes produce more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and rough roads.

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

Our Verdict

The Giant Contend AR 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.
