With all the attention paid to "gravel-this" and "adventure-that", maybe the best bike is one that lets you be the adventurer.

The Contend AR 1 is the flagship of the Contend AR lineup. Built as an endurance bike with stable handling and road manners, the Contend AR lets you focus on the road ahead without feeling twitchy or nervous. Giant's own ALUXX-Grade aluminum is found throughout the frame, bringing light weight and strength to the bike. A fully Advanced-Grade Composite carbon fiber fork soaks up fatiguing vibration as well as reducing overall weight further. There's room for tires up to 38mm wide, so terrible pavement and even hardpan trails won't be too rough. Bottle cage and fender mounts make the Contend AR 1 an excellent commuter bike as well. Flat-mount disc brake installation is another weight-saver that even improves brake lever feedback. Aligning the hubs into the dropouts is simple with 12mm thru-axles. Internal cable routing keeps the Contend AR 1 looking clean and sleek.

Shimano's 11-speed 105 components take up gear changing duties on the Contend AR 1 with precision and long service life. The dual-control levers feature adjustable reach and need less hand effort to operate. A long-cage Shadow-style rear derailleur operates across a 11-34T Shimano 105 cassette, while an alloy Shimano 50/34T compact crankset ensures flex-free power delivery.

Giant's own P-S2 tubeless alloy wheels are shod with comfy tubeless 700x32c Gavio Fondo 2 tires, ensuring a smooth ride and confident grip. Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brakes add excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. A clever D-Fuse Composite carbon fiber seat post flexes slightly when crossing railway tracks or potholes. Giant's Contact saddle, alloy Connect stem and D-Fuse SL alloy road handlebar complete this road-ready machine.
