Every Contact SLR model is available in two different options (Forward or Upright) based on the unique contact angle of a rider’s pelvis while riding (women tend to have a U-shaped pelvis resulting in two defined Pelvis conditions). Contact SLR features carbon fibre rails, Particle Flow Technology to reduce pressure points all weighing in at just 180g.

Recognizing the importance of proper saddle fit, Giant created a platform that considers the unique and variable conditions of a cyclist’s connection to the saddle while riding. We call this philosophy Dynamic Cycling Fit. Whether you choose road, XC, trail, enduro or downhill you will experience the comfort of a saddle that feels like it was made just for you.
By combining our advanced carbon material and compact structural design, Giant’s New Compact Carbon Composite Saddle Base allows a positive amount of flex during pedaling and boasts a 30% compliance upgrade from previous iterations.
All new high-density and high-elastic foam padding improves overall comfort while maintaining sufficient support between the rider and the saddle base. The high-elastic foam also delivers 30% more shock absorption than our previous foam, resulting in greater comfort and better performance.
Giant’s free-flowing high-elastic particles are inserted into two separate pockets that mold to each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition to provide further comfort and support. The particles deform more easily under pressure, providing superior comfort and high rebound performance, resulting in reduced pressure points across a broader contact area.
Abrasion Resistant Edge
Improved durability down to the smallest detail. Giant has designed a lightweight, vacuum-formed carbon composite material that surrounds the saddle edge to protect crucial wear points and help prevent scuffing.
Pressure Relief Channel
Each DCF shape (Forward, Neutral, Upright) features a smooth curve and shape-specific channel to reduce pressure on the perineum and increase blood circulation, resulting in superior comfort.
Giant Contact SLR and Contact SL saddles are available in three shapes; Forward, Neutral and Upright. These three shapes are the result of the Dynamic Cycling Fit philosophy to fit each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition to the saddle while riding. The result, better fit for greater performance.
