Liv Avail SL 1 Disc Women's 2017

The Liv Avail SL 1 Disc features Giant's new Conduct hydraulic disc brakes to create a sportive-ready women's road bike that offers Absolute Braking Stability.

Giant Conduct hydraulic disc brakes
Giant's new 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.

Further upgrades over Liv Avail SL 2 Disc Women's 2017

  • Shimano 105 1x11 gear shifting is that wee bit slicker than Tiagra 1x10
  • The Giant wheels roll on cartridge sealed bearings
  • Same as Liv Avail SL 2 Disc
  • Aluxx SL frame and Composite fork
    Aluxx SL frame tubes are a finer-grain double-butted 6011 aluminium alloy for optimal strength:weight ratio. The result: arguably the best aluminium frame for the money.
  • The Hybrid Composite fork combines carbon legs for excellent shock damping and steering precision with an OverDrive tapered aluminium steerer to help eliminate brake judder.
  • 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

Endurance Road Bike
The Avail women's road bike was designed by Liv and manufactured by Giant, so you know it will be engineered true and strong, it will ride really well and it will offer all-day comfort.

Liv's true road geometry (72 degree head tube angle and 74.5 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.

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

Shimano 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

Giant 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 front and rear specific 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.

If you would like to make it an all-weather bike, Giant actually make mudguardsfor their Liv Avail bikes.

Order the mudguards (and anything else) with the bike and we will waive our normal fitting charge.

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.

'BRING THE BLISS BACK TO ROAD RIDING WITH THE LIGHTWEIGHT AVAIL SL. PERFORMANCE FOR FASTER, LONGER ROAD RIDES.
A lightweight extension of your body that intuitively moves with you, the Avail SL Disc was born ready for the longest days on the road. It never hurts to throw in looks that outshine the pack; with elegant, modern finishes, you can stay in the lead with style. Powerful disc brakes offer confidence and control in variable conditions.
