Ride with Ease

State-of-the-art Technologies

ALUXX Aluminium Technology

Contend AR 1's frame is designed with this high-performance material that incorporates 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to create robust, lightweight framesets optimal for various riding styles.

D-Fuse Technology

D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar, engineered to function as a system, absorb road vibrations, allowing you to ride longer, quicker.

OverDrive Steerer System
