Liv’s playful all-mountain trail bike makes easy work of diverse terrain
NEWBURY PARK, Calif. (May 14, 2019) – Liv Cycling, the company dedicated to getting more women on bikes, announced its agile all-mountain trail bike, Intrigue, is now available in a lightweight aluminum ALUXX model. The new Liv Intrigue is designed with the specific ability to charge down technical descents, up steep climbs, and flow through berms and over features with ease.
“The versatility of the Intrigue makes it the ideal bike for riders to rip flowy singletrack and feel equally confident on technical terrain,” said Ludi Scholz, off-road category manager, Liv global. “It truly is the do-it-all bike that will empower women to push their riding to the next level.”
The Intrigue series maintains an Advanced Forge composite linkage and delivering 140mm rear Maestro suspension and a 150mm fork. It was built using Liv’s 3F Design Philosophy, combined with suspension testing by women, for women, and tuned to perfection through athlete prototype testing. The Liv 3F Design process includes thousands of data points about women’s anatomy, sizing variations, and muscle energy and outputs. As with all Liv bikes, the data is used to engineer the frame and best harness women’s strength providing a more balanced, efficient and powerful ride.
Responsive, Lightweight Frame
Intrigue comes with a unique frame geometry that offers water bottle compatibility on all bike sizes, sleek internal cable routing, refined rear triangle, and is 2x drivetrain and front derailleur compatible.

No Compromise Finish
