A road bike that only work well on sunny days won't be your favorite bike if it isn't sunny. Or if the road is barely a road.

The Contend AR 3 stakes its claim as a value-oriented machine, with a design that makes every mile easier. Bad roads? No problem! The Contend AR 3 starts with a 32mm road tire. Need wider rubber than that? The Contend AR 3 can handle up to 38mm tires! A long wheelbase, stable handling and an upright fit makes the bike perfect as a starter road machine, or a daily commuter in a wide range of conditions. Giant's own ALUXX-Grade hydroformed and butted aluminum is used to build the frame, keeping weight low for hilly excursions. 12mm thru-axles bring an extra dash of torsional strength, adding to the Contend AR 3's handling prowess. An all-carbon Advanced-Grade Composite fork is mounted in a tapered head tube, ensuring sharp handling in technical turns and descents.

Shimano's 9-speed Sora components handle drivetrain duties, including the dual-control levers, long-cage rear derailleur, front derailleur and 50/34T compact crankset. An 11-34T Shimano cassette brings a huge gearing range to the party, helping to make short work of challenging hills and terrain. Giant supplies the S-R2 Disc alloy wheelset, also keeping overall weight low. The aformentioned 700x32c S-R3 AC tires boast a wide contact patch for a smooth feel and confident grip, especially on rough and choppy pavement. The Contend AR 3 helps reign in speed with a set of cable-operated Tektro disc brakes. Rain? Dust? Dirt? Stopping power is at your fingertips, rain or shine. The Contend AR 3's Giant Contact saddle sits atop an alloy D-Fuse seatpost that flexes slight to take the edge off harsh pavement and railway crossings. An alloy Sport stem and alloy Connect road handlebar completes this excellent all-rounder.
