Product Details

Liv Avail SL 2 Disc 2019 Women's Road Bike

This Liv Avail SL 2 Disc Women's sportive road bike with Giant Conduct disc brake system, Shimano Tiagra 2x10 speed drivetrain and a Giant D-Fuse Composite seatpost.

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.

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.

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.

Good Gear
Reliable sure-shifting Shimano Tiagra is Shimano's 2x10 STI road bike drivetrain. Its wide gear range via the Shimano Tiagra 34/50 chainset and 11-32 cassette will get you over near-any ridable road.

Sound Wheels
Lighter weight 700x28 folding tyres on Giant's own wheels help ensure this is one smooth-rolling bicycle.

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

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 2 Disc Women's

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

The lightweight Avail SL Disc is handcrafted with ALUXX SL, our highest grade aluminum. Avail optimizes a woman’s riding style, providing pedaling efficiency, razor-sharp handling and added compliance. Disc brake technology offers braking confidence and control in variable conditions, and the integrated D-Fuse seatpost reduces road vibration and fatigue. Other features include the OverDrive steerer tube for increased frontal stiffness and precise steering, along with the PowerCore bottom bracket that transfers power directly from each pedal stroke to the road.
