RIDE ROADS, GRAVEL OR DIRT WITH THIS ALL-NEW ALUMINUM ALL-ROUNDER. A COMPOSITE FORK GIVES IT A SMOOTH RIDE, AND A FLIP CHIP LETS YOU ADJUST WHEELBASE AND TIRE CLEARANCE. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Confident handling Frame is designed with endurance positioning and shorter chainstays for precise handling, agility and control. A longer reach, shorter stem and lower bottom bracket drop improves stability on rugged terrain. Tuned compliance New frame features thinner, dropped seatstays to absorb road shocks and vibrations. D-Fuse handlebar and seatpost work as a system to add compliance without sacrificing stiffness while cornering, sprinting or climbing. Adaptable to the terrain A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase short for quicker handling and acceleration, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can choose the included D-Fuse seatpost for maximum compliance, or switch to a 30.9mm round or dropper post.
Some roads are smooth, others are rough. This smooth-riding all-rounder handles it all, taking you from the main route to more adventurous options with confidence and control. Contend AR combines a smooth, responsive ride quality with an ability to handle adventurous new routes. Disc-brake integration and generous tire clearance (up to 38mm) put you in control, even on rough roads. A D-Fuse composite seatpost dampens road vibrations, giving you a smoother, more enjoyable ride experience. This is a true all-rounder for road riders who have a thirst for adventure.
