The Contend SL 2 Disc is an excellent first road bike that works for plenty of different riders and goals.

 Light weight is the first thing a rider looks for in a road bike, ensuring as little as possible holds them back on every hill. But ride quality is sometimes overlooked. A smoother feel over rough and choppy pavement can reduce fatigue, keeping the rider fresher for longer. The Contend SL 2 Disc  was designed around those goals of light weight and a smooth feel. The Contend's ALUXX SL-grade aluminum alloy frame and Composite carbon fork reduces weight while still adding vertical compliance for dealing with ugly tarmac and potholes. Additionally, the clever D-Fuse Composite seat post will absorb more harshness than a classic round alloy seat post. The slightly longer wheelbase improves stability, allowing the rider to be more relaxed over pavement changes and broken blacktop. The Contend's more upright geometry allows a wider range of riders and rider flexibilites to fit comfortably. A tapered steerer tube improves handling precision, especially in fast cornering and high-speed descending.

The Contend's excellent frameset is just the start. Shimano's redesigned Tiagra components are found throughout the Contend's drivetrain. The adjustable-reach levers and reshaped hoods are much more comfortable, as well as getting the sleeker under-the-bar-tape cables. 10-speed shifting operation feels lighter, while a new 50/34T compact crankset reduces weight and improves pedaling response. A generous 11-32T cassette boasts an excellent gearing range, and is perfect for tackling steep climbs. Lightweight alloy 32-spoke SR-2 Disc wheels are shod with Giant's 700x25c P-SL 1 front- and rear-specific tires for confident grip. Helping to reign in speed is a set of TRP Spyre-C disc brakes. Confident stopping power is the hallmark of disc brakes, rain or shine. Giant's own alloy Connect road handlebars, D-Fuse Composite seatpost, Contact Forward saddle and alloy Sport stem complete the cockpit.
