Liv’s endurance-focused mainstay builds in enhanced comfort and control
NEWBURY PARK, Calif. (June 5, 2019) – Liv Cycling, the company dedicated to getting more women on bikes, has introduced the all new Avail Advanced, its line of endurance-focused road bikes. The compact road frame design creates a lighter, stiffer, smoother ride with a better fit for women who enjoy long distance rides for fun, fitness or casual competition.
“The Avail Advanced is an incredibly versatile, ‘do everything’ road bike that was created to be light, responsive on climbs and provide ultimate control on descents,” said Sophia Shih, Liv product development advanced engineer. “This bike is perfect for women who prioritize comfort and easy handling, and the ability to tackle long, sometimes all-day rides.”
Built using Liv’s 3F Design Philosophy, the Avail Advanced lineup features an Advanced-grade composite frame and fork with an exceptionally lightweight geometry with a carbon layup tuned specifically for women. 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.
Built for Endurance
The Avail Advanced was designed with endurance geometry, offering a more upright riding position for supreme comfort during epic adventures. One of the newer features on the Avail Advanced is sleek, integrated cable route design and a RideSense compatible frame that allows riders to transmit speed and cadence data to any ANT+ or Bluetooth device.
The lightweight stability offered by the CompactRoad frame design and advanced-grade composite fork, paired with powerful disc brakes give the Avail Advanced confident stopping power, precise steering and control in variable weather conditions. The OverDrive 2 steerer tube provides unprecedented frontal and cornering stiffness, while the PowerCore bottom bracket affords pedaling efficiency and stability.
The D-Fuse SL seatpost reduces road vibration to help keep riders fresh, making long days in the saddle more comfortable, while larger tire size compatibility offers the ability to take roads less traveled.
The new Avail Advanced line will be available worldwide this summer. Find your local Liv retailer online at https://www.liv-cycling.com/us/stores.
