Liv Avail Advanced Carbon Composite Frameset

  • At around 912g (including gear hanger and D-fuse composite seatpost) 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.

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 carbon composite seatpost works in tandem with the skinny seatstays to do a remarkable job of damping bad vibes that would otherwise be transmitted from unsmooth road surfaces.

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.

'FROM EPIC SOLO ADVENTURES TO GROUP ROAD RIDES. LIGHT, FAST AND ENGINEERED JUST FOR FEMALE ENDURANCE RIDERS
Light and lively on the climbs and supremely confident on the descents, this versatile endurance road bike will help you cover more miles with confidence and ease. An Advanced grade composite frame features the latest in lightweight endurance geometry and its special carbon lay-up is tuned specifically for how women ride. The D-Fuse seatpost reduces road vibration, keeping your legs fresh for more miles. Disc brake technology gives you confidence and control in variable weather, even on wet roads. Other features include the OverDrive steerer tube for precision steering and a PowerCore bottom bracket for pedalling efficiency.'

3F: Fit, Form, Function
A simple guiding principle is at the heart of all Liv/giant bikes. It's called 3F. This product-design philosophy, which stands for "Fit, Form, Function,” allows Liv/giant engineers and designers to stay focused on the holistic balance of three key characteristics deemed critical to every bike's performance and appeal. From pro-level road or mountain bikes to stylish city bikes, the 3F label is a promise that every Liv/giant bike has been designed specifically for female riders.'
