The Details

The Giant Contend AR 3 2022 Aluminium Road Bike is designed for aspiring riders aiming to ride a little faster and go a little further. 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 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.

The Contend AR 3 also comes with mounts for both rack and mudguards to ensure that the Contend can deal with any type of riding no matter the weather.

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

  • Shimano Sora mechanical disc brake groupset
  • Balanced geometry - Blending a confident rider position with agile cornering and acceleration
  • Smooth riding - D-Fuse seatpost helps reduce road shocks and vibrations
  • Flexibility - Enough frame and fork clearance to run wider tyres (up to 32mm)

Our Verdict

The Giant Contend AR 3 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.
