If you’re looking for a bicycle designed by women, for women, then look no further than Liv bikes. Liv, the female arm of the manufacturing giant Giant, have just the thing for you.
Liv Avail Road Bikes
Avail endurance road bikes are our best selling Liv bicycles.
‘Endurance road’ means an Avail will match or better any similarly priced women’s road bike for speed.
Better still, the Avail’s longer wheelbase, its wider gear range (11-32 cassette), its shock-damping D-fuse carbon seatpost and its marginally higher handlebars (fitted with bar-top brake levers on the AluxX frame models) combine to create a more user-friendly road bike.
This fusion of comfort, speed and practicality makes Liv Avail our most popular range of women’s sportive bikes. Here’s a roundup of our four top selling Avails.
Liv Avail 2 2017 £575
Combining an Aluxx aluminium frame, carbon fork and a D-fuse carbon seatpost (all manufactured by Giant) with a high-quality Shimano Tiagra STI 2×10 transmission, this bike delivers the key speed-with-comfort attributes that have made Liv Avail bikes legendary.
Liv Avail SL 1 Disc 2017 £1,149
Liv’s top of the range AluxX-frame Avail is upgraded with confidence-inspiring, lower-maintenance TRP Spyre disc brakes, smoother-rolling cartridge bearing wheels and the world’s most popular road bike drivetrain – Shimano 105 STI 2×11.
Liv Avail Advanced 3 2017 £1,549
Q: How do you improve upon an Aluxx-frame Liv Avail?
A: Build it with the best carbon frame for the money. Not only does this create a lighter weight bike. The carbon frame’s extra stiffness makes for a bike that can climb and accelerate faster than you’ve ever experienced before.
Shimano Ultegra 2×11 gearing creates an even slicker shifting Liv Avail.
Liv Invite Cross Bikes
As with the Avail, every Liv Invite cross bike is built on arguably the best chassis for the money – a Giant-manufactured Aluxx frame and carbon composite fork.
The Invite difference is that it is cyclo-cross inspired with wider 700×32 tyres for extra traction on dirt tracks and extra clearance if you would like us to set it up with full length mudguards. The result is a characterful all-purpose bike that is equally fit for weekday commuting and weekend fun.
Ergo Control Brake Levers
Like the sub-£1,000 Avails, the Liv Invite’s Shimano drop bar brake levers are supplemented with a pair of Ergo Control levers, which make it easy to operate the brakes while riding with your hands perched comfortably on the bar tops.
The Invite 1 is upgraded with Shimano Sora 3×9 STI gear shifting and TRP Spyre disc brakes.
Liv Mountain Bikes
Looking for our best-equipped women’s-specific trail-ready hardtail mountain bike for women? Choose Liv.
Giant-built AluxX frame, 100mm-travel SunTour suspension fork, Tektro HDC-M290 hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano 3×8 gearing and Maxxis Icon 27.5×2.2″ tyres: the Liv Tempt 4 is a best buy in genuinely trail-ready women’s hardtails.
