Liv Avail SL 1 Disc Women's 2018

This sportive-ready women's road bike features Giant Conduct hydraulic disc brakes to ensure its stopping power marches its speed potential.

Giant Conduct 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.

More good things

  • Shimano 105 1x11 drivetrain - easily the world's most popular road bike groupset because it works so well
  • The Giant wheels roll on cartridge sealed bearings
  • Aluxx SL frame tubes are a finer-grain double-butted 6011 aluminium alloy than standard Aluxx 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.

Giant wheels and tyres
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.

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.
