Liv Avail 1 Women's Road Bike

10/10: Cycling Weekly - Read the full review here. The Liv Avail 1 is a Shimano Sora 2x9-equipped women's road bike equally at home on short fitness rides or day-long sportives.

  • ALUXX single butted 6061 aluminium frameset built from scratch by the world's most experienced aluminium frame builders - Giant
  • The Giant-engineered Composite Fork with ALUXX Steerer delivers the shock-damping, lightweight performance you expect from a quality carbon fork
  • Shimano Sora STI Dual Control 2x9 shifters control the Shimano Sora mechs to offer a wide-range of gears via the 34/50 chainset and the 11-32 cassette
  • This gearing makes a Liv Avail suitable for the type of challenging varied terrain you would typically encounter at a sportive or similar long-distance ride
  • Note the chainset and cassette are also genuine Shimano Sora to ensure optimal performance (it's not uncommon for bike manufacturers to spec cheaper cranks and cogs, so kudos to Giant for not diluting the spec)
  • These STI (Shimano Total Integration) gear shifters are integrated with the brake levers so you can change gear any time without having to remove your hands from the brake lever hoods
  • Tektro caliper brakes borrow Shimano's Dual Pivot technology to deliver consistent, low-maintenance, modulated braking performance
  • Giant S-R3 wheel set - as well as building their own frames and forks, Giant extrude their own rims to build their own high quality wheels
  • Giant then equip their wheels with their own 700x25 tyres
  • Controlling every aspect of designing, engineering and building the wheelset ensures every component works perfectly with its partner to create a more laterally stiff wheel which will take less effort to accelerate faster
  • On the same principle, the tyre fits the rim as though it was made for it - which it was
  • Order mudguards (and anything else) with the bike and we will waive our normal fitting charge

Designed by women for women
As well as coming with a shorter reach women's specific frame, the Liv Avail comes with a Liv women's saddle.

Bar top levers
Noting that many women don't appreciate being stretched out on the drops over the whole bike ride, the Liv Avail comes with bar-top brake levers to augment the standard drop bar STI levers.

Endurance Road Bike
Liv's true road geometry (72 degree head tube angle and 74 degree seat tube angle in medium size) positions you on the bike to help you achieve maximum output (i.e. speed for your effort). The frame's slightly taller head tube and longer wheelbase (compared with a flat-out race bike) makes the Avail a more comfortable ride for longer distance sportive-like rides.

Liv
As far as we know, Liv is the only women's global bicycle brand that is entirely staffed by women. Liv bicycles' designers, engineers, and managers - every employee is a woman. That's exceptional in the bike trade. The fact that Liv is a semi-autonomous part of Giant - the world's largest quality bicycle manufacturer - helps ensure every Liv bike is exceptional too in terms of the quality of spec on offer at every price point.
