 Realizing an old hybrid or favorite mountain bike for new road adventures can be hard. The Giant Contend 1, however, is easy.

Lightness. That's what the Contend 1 has over so many other mountain bikes, commuters and "beater bikes". The Contend 1's light weight starts with an ALUXX-grade butted aluminum frame and Composite fork, making for a backbone that won't weight you down. The Contend 1's fit is a bit more upright than a hard-core racer, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable for long days in the saddle. A tapered Overdrive head tube adds precision to the Contend 1's handling, especially in fast corners and descents.

Shimano's recently redesigned 9-speed Sora components are found throughout the Contend 1, including the adjustable-reach levers, both derailleurs, and the 50/34T compact crankset. Precise shifting and Shimano's component integration let you think about the riding, not about how to get the bike to work for you. An 11-32T 9-speed cassette boasts a huge gearing range, making steep hills less intimidating. Alloy S-R2 wheels are wrapped with 700x25c tires, ensuring confident grip and easy acceleration. Alloy dual-pivot Tektro brake calipers help reign in speed with excellent lever feedback. The Contend 1's Contact saddle, alloy seatpost, alloy stem and Connect road handlebar are ready for many paved miles. Are you?
