When the time comes for a your first road bike, Giant's Contend has your back.
With a very light ALUXX-grade aluminum frame and Composite carbon fiber fork, the Giant Contend 1 already has plenty going for it. The tall head tube and more upright fit ensures more than just a flexible teenager can fit comfortably. That same tall head tube is tapered, adding to the Contend 1's handling qualities in high-speed turns and descents. Shimano's 9-speed Sora components are found throughout the Contend 1, bringing precise, lightning-quick operation to every shift. The dual-control levers, 50/34T compact crankset and both derailleurs are all Sora components for a seamless feel. The 11-32T Shimano cassette boasts a massive gearing range for steep ascents and challenging courses. Tubeless-ready alloy SR-2 wheels are wrapped with Giant P-R3 AC 700x28 tires, bringing easy acceleration and a smooth ride quality to the Contend 1. A Contact Forward saddle, alloy seatpost, alloy stem and alloy Connect road handlebar, complete this road-worthy machine.
