Liv Avail Advanced 2 Women's 2018

Shimano 105 STI 2x11-equipped Liv Avail Advanced carbon sportive/endurance road bike. Now with tubeless tyres previously reserved for Giant £2K-plus pro bikes.

Liv Avail Advanced Carbon Composite Frameset

  • This is comfortably among the lightest disc brake road frames at this kind of price
  • Every Liv Avail Advanced frameset is fabricated in-house by Giant, from its raw performance-grade Toray T-700 carbon filament to its final lacquered finish, to create a stiffer, lighter weight and more compliant ride
  • Blending Toray T700 carbon filament and resin with vibration-absorbing particles helps maximise rider comfort and frame strength (hence the lifetime guarantee)
  • Modified Monocoque Construction: the front triangle is assembled and moulded as one continuous piece
  • The main frame is then joined to the rear chainstays and seatstays in a secondary process
  • This process eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness
  • 12mm front and rear thru-axles reinforce the crucial interface between dropouts and wheels to optimise brake performance

Advanced Carbon Composite fork
The Liv Avail's lightweight shock-absorbing Advanced Grade Composite carbon fork legs go a long way to creating a responsive, fast-steering, exciting ride, while the tapered aluminium steerer reinforces the front end of the bike.

Giant D-Fuse Seatpost
The Giant D-shaped seatpost helps damp bad vibes that would otherwise be transmitted from unsmooth road surfaces. Also, being D-shaped, it's impossible to set the saddle up squint when it's mounted to a Giant D-Fuse Seatpost. The Carbon composite version of the D-Fuse seatpost, spec'd here, is even more shock damping than the alloy version.

Tubeless tyres
Previously reserved for their £2K-plus Pro models, Liv believe so much in the benefits of going tubeless (such as a smoother ride and fewer flats) they have introduced tubeless tyres to most of their £1,000-plus 2018 bikes. Why this is a good thing.

Giant Conduct hydraulic disc brakes
Giant's unique take on cable-operated hydraulic disc brakes: each brake is initially cable controlled from the Shimano 105 STI brake lever, but only to its reservoir, which is hidden under the handlebar stem from where a hydraulic line connects it to the caliper. The benefit of this system is that you get the improved power and modulation of a hydraulic brake while the caliper is much neater than previous hybrid cable/hydraulic systems for road bikes. See Giant video.

Good Gear
Thanks to their super slick reliable performance, it's easy to understand why Shimano 105 STI 2x11 is the world's most popular road bike drivetrain.

Liv Avail Overview
The Liv Avail is one superb road bike for women. The Avail falls into the 'endurance' AKA comfort AKA sportive category of road bikes. Its true road geometry (72 degree head 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) to offer an engaging, exciting ride. Its slightly taller head tube and longer wheelbase (compared with a flat-out race bike) makes the Avail a comfortable ride for longer distance sportive-like rides.

Liv
Liv's ambition is 'to make cycling more approachable and appealing to women'. 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.

Here's how Liv describe the Liv Avail Advanced 2 Women

FROM EPIC SOLO ADVENTURES TO GROUP ROAD RIDES, AVAIL IS LIGHT, COMFORTABLE AND ENGINEERED FOR FEMALE RIDERS.

Why We Love It
Responsive, energetic and determined, this bike makes big days in the saddle all the more magical. The build irons out the roughness of the road and you'll experience the comfort and freedom to settle in for endless miles. Complete with disc brakes, this bike exhibits stopping power in any condition, and can accommodate larger tire sizes to tackle choppy pavement. With both climbing agility and descending composure, the Avail Advanced will lead you to search for new challenges each ride.
