Giant Contend, SL Vs AR

    Just in the process of picking a new bike and evaluating the Contend SL1 Disc Vs the Contend AR 1. Using the compare tool on Giant’s website they seem very similar if not identical. However I’m no expert by any means so just thought I’d ask if anyone has experience of them or compared them ? I’m leaning towards the SL1 as I previously owned one (in the wrong size), but not sure if I should consider the AR as an alternative. Would I be gaining or losing anything by picking the AR ?

    My cycling wouldn’t really involve any off road stuff, it would purely be for health/fitness reasons or to kill an hour or two at weekends.

    thanks !
