The Details

Please note, any warranty claims arising from this product will need to be facilitated either direct through the manufacturer, or via a local Giant dealer. This is because we are no longer an authorised Giant dealer, and are therefore unable to process warranty claims through them. We are still able to process warranty claims for third party components such as Shimano for example. This does not affect your warranty, or your statutory rights.

The Giant Contend SL 2 Disc features an aluminium frame and high-quality components, to give you a big boost in efficiency so you can crank out more miles day in and day out. Made with a lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame, Contend SL Disc features balanced geometry for versatile all-rounder capabilities. The rear triangle is designed for quick acceleration, while the front end puts the rider in a confident position for comfort and control.

In addition, its unique technologies, including a D-Fuse composite seatpost and Giant WheelSystem, give it a smooth ride that’s perfectly capable on all types of road terrain. From the hills to flats, smooth roads or rough, Giant’s Contend SL Disc does it all.

Struggling with the difference between the Contend SL1 and the Contend SL2? The SL2 is very similar except the groupset is 1 tier down, with Shimano Tiagra. A very capable groupset that is a little heavier and a little less performant! The SL2 also has disc brakes which have superior stopping power in the wet over rim brakes.

Balanced Road Geometry - The frame is specifically engineered to produce a balanced, all-rounder feel that blends confident rider positioning with agile road handling.

Smooth Ride Quality - Innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost design reduces road shocks and vibrations, and a Giant WheelSystem lets you run tubeless tyres up to 28mm for smoother ride quality and reduced risk of flats.

Lightweight Efficiency - ALUXX SL aluminium frame delivers efficient climbing and snappy acceleration.

A quick summary of the SL2 disc spec.

Our Verdict

Ready to increase your road riding mileage? The lightweight, smooth-riding Giant Contend SL 2 Disc 2021 Aluminium Road Bike is all the motivation you need.

Industry Reviews

bike-radar-review

The brake system will put some off, but the Contend SL is a great all-rounder. Buy if you want a comfortable distance machine with most of the advantages of hydraulic discs.
