The Giant Contend SL 1 Disc is a super lightweight aluminium road bike that blends endurance and agility in its balanced geometry.

The Contend SL 1 Disc is engineered using Giant’s lightweight ALUXX SL ("Super Light") aluminium frame technology to provide a lightweight, compliant and balanced bike for a wide variety of road riding enthusiasts. Designed with a D-fuse carbon composite seat post to dampen road vibrations, as well as an Advanced-Grade Composite fork and OverDrive steerer system, to maintain comfort and control for however long you choose to ride the roads. Seamless disc-brake integration provides powerful and precise braking, regardless of road or weather conditions. 

The Shimano 105 drivetrain means you can follow the roads wherever they take you, and with the wide gear range rear cassette (11-30), you’ll climb steep hills with energy spare to enjoy the view. Giant’s tubeless system improves rolling efficiency and grip, whilst the tyre clearance (up to 32c) allows you to run larger volume tyres for a smoother ride quality.

Road Bike Sizing Guide

Road bikes as the name implies are for road use. There are a growing number of “gravel” or “adventure” bikes which are based on road bicycles, but feature wider and more versatile tyres and disc brakes, so you can also do light trail riding such as towpaths. They are also more pothole resistant!

Sizing is normally in cm, and is a measurement from the centre of the chain-wheel axle (The BB or bottom bracket) and the top of the frame seat tube. Some are measured to the centre of the seat tube where it meets the top tube (otherwise known as the crossbar).

That measurement is on road bikes normally in CM – and no-one really knows why! Some road bikes will use “T-Shirt Sizing” so S, M, L, XL etc. but there will be a geometry chart that then shows the measurement in CM.

What is your height? Your suggested bicycle size
Feet/Inches Centimetres Suggested Size
4'10" - 5'0" 148cm - 152cm XX-Small (47-48cm)
5'0" - 5'3" 152cm - 160cm X-Small (49-50cm)
5'3" - 5'6" 160cm - 168cm Small (51-53cm)
5'6" - 5'9" 168cm - 175cm Medium (54-55cm)
5'9" - 6'0" 175cm - 183cm Large (56-58cm)
6'0" - 6'3" 183cm - 191cm X-Large (58-60cm)
6'3" - 6'6" 191cm - 198cm XX-Large (61-63cm)

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.
