Liv Avail SL 1 Women's 2018

With its super slick Shimano 105 STI 2x11 gear shifting, this is the best rim brake-equipped sportive-ready road bike in the Liv Avail SL range.

Giant-built Aluxx SL frame and Composite fork
Lighter weight and more compliant and shock absorbing than standard Aluxx frame tubing, 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.

Giant's 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 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.

Good Gear
Super slick, reliable performance yet affordable enough to be spec'd on £1,000 bike, it's easy to understand why Shimano 105 STI 2x11 is the world's most popular road bike drivetrain.

Sound Wheels
Lighter weight 700x25 folding tyres on Giant's own wheels help ensure this is one smooth-rolling bicycle.

Endurance Road Bike Geometry
Liv classic road bike frame geometry (72 degree head tube angle / 74 degree seat tube angle for medium-size frame) delivers a fast, engaging ride with engineered-in comfort. The Avail remains a true road bike. It just happens to be designed to be less stretched out and more comfortable for most riders, especially over longer distances. That's why endurance road bikes such as the Liv Avail are often referred to as comfort road bikes or sportive bikes.

Here's how Liv describe their Avail SL 1 Women's 2018
