LIV Bicycles


Road, mountain and e-bikes FOR WOMEN, BY WOMEN

It didn’t take long for Giant Bicycles to recognize women like to ride bikes, too, and they are not simply smaller versions of male cyclists. With that, Giant launched the Liv Cycling brand in 2008 with a line of bikes engineered and designed specifically for women.

Liv Cycling features a range of bikes comparable to their brothers with the Giant name badge. Racers on the road and the mountains have a variety of choices for cyclists of all abilities and interests.

While Liv products might share some of the same DNA as Giant bikes, they’re definitely unique. Designed from the ground up with Liv-specific geometry and separate molds for carbon frames, the bikes are unique in virtually every way.

Due to the specification and value, Liv has established itself as one of the most popular women’s specific bicycle brands. Liv’s road bikes can be found beneath some of the world’s fastest racers on the women’s world tour. Racers and recreational roadies alike appreciate Liv’s comfort, performance and affordability. From the high end Enviliv and Langma to the entry level, yet race worthy Avail, women who ride road have a variety of options that will guide them to podiums, finish lines or canyon summits.

On the dirt side, Liv isn’t much different. With unique engineering, excellent carbon or aluminum and top-flight components, Liv’s mountain bikes range from lightweight hardtails to full suspension trail bikes capable of shredding trails.

Other bikes from Liv include urban commuters and electric pedal assist bikes as well as uniquely designed kids bikes that will allow your youngster to grow from training wheels to race day if that’s what they into.

Liv bikes are beautiful, elegant and functional - much like the riders who own them.
