Liv, profite de l'expertise du groupe Giant, 1er fabriquant mondial de cadre légers et robustes, pour créer des vélos parfaitement adaptés aux femmes et ainsi créer une toute nouvelle expérience dans la pratique du cyclisme.
Fit, Form, and Function — Liv’s data-driven approach to building bikes for women.
Fit: Liv analyzes data on human body dimension, muscular strength and muscular activity, then considers the type of riding the rider will be doing, to build a frame that is fine-tuned through athlete feedback cycles with the goal to fit as many women as possible.
Form: The bike’s outlook takes the form with the intention to create a strong bond between the rider and the bike. The designers match the performance level of the bike with a beautiful and inspiring outlook.
Function: The componentry of the bike is carefully selected and the composite layup is uniquely crafted to give the rider an unprecedented performance edge and comfort
Liv’s High-Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this frameset in our own composite factory. Using state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing techniques, Liv’s Advanced-Grade Composite frames are designed to offer light weight and stiffness with optimal compliance.
Liv’s Professional Grade raw carbon material is woven in our own composite factory using our most advanced engineering and construction methods including: Continuous Fiber Technology to add strength while reducing weight; Carbon Nanotube Technology resin to improve impact resistance; and Fusion Process for lighter, stronger frame junctions.
This High-Performance level, state-of-the-art aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. These framesets also feature unique welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.
This superlight Pro level aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any Liv aluminum frameset. State-of-the-art microscopic grain manipulation and advanced butting allows for 20 percent thinner and lighter tube shapes than ALUXX SL framesets.
This proprietary blend of pure carbon fiber and fiber-reinforced polymer allows Liv engineers to design framesets that deliver comfortable and efficient performance, with a ride quality tuned for sport and fitness riders.
When introduced by Giant in 1990s, Compact Road revolutionized the look and feel of high-performance road bikes forever. A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
Specific composite layup and tube shaping, including ultra-thin and flattened seatstays, a low seatstay/seattube junction, and thin, slightly curved fork legs combine for a balanced, compliant ride quality and reduced rider fatigue.
Future-proof with the new downtube EnergyPak. This updated EnergyPak is mounted in the downtube of our E-bikes. The biggest difference from the side release and top pull EnergyPak is a more minimalist downtube design. This makes it more integrated and streamlined with the rest of the E-bike frame.
The side release EnergyPak can be removed from the frame by moving it sideways. This allows for more compact frame designs, lower stand-over heights and XS sizes. The side release batteries have a capacity of 400Wh and 500Wh and are used on mountain and trekking E-bikes
Designed as a key performance factor in the overall frameset, the integrated seatpost saves up to 45 grams compared to standard composite posts, while improving aerodynamics and adding road-smoothing compliance.
Hybrid Cycling Technology is a system that combines electric power with human power to produce the most efficient, powerful and natural E-bike riding experience. It’s a seamless extension of a rider’s own power that sets Liv and Giant E-bikes apart from other “electric” bicycles. The system consists of four key innovative technologies that work in unison with your own body’s power output—a seamless extension of your own capabilities.
The most advanced steerer tube technology in today’s Liv and Giant bikes. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, this fork steerer tube technology uses oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
The PedalPlus 4-sensor technology system combines speed and torque sensors with motor and pedal rotation sensors to produce consistent power across the entire gear range. It precisely measures the amount of force a rider is applying to the pedals so that the motor delivers a seamless power boost.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design (92-millimeterwide for off-road bikes). Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
RideControl EVO represents state-of-the-art design and aesthetics. Clean, rounded corners give it an elegant look and feel. And with its aluminum housing, the RideControl EVO is more shockproof and durable, even on rough terrain. The RideControl EVO can be connected with Bluetooth by our dealers and offers USB charging possibilities. The Bluetooth connectivity makes sure the RideControl can be updated—meaning you’ll always be up to date with the latest software technology.
RideControl ONE takes your E-bike riding experience to new levels with integrated button controls and a clean handlebar free of any display. The E-bikes equipped with RideControl ONE can connect with the Liv and Giant E-bike App to function as your E-bike display
SyncDrive Pro powered by Yamaha is designed for high-performance E-bike riding. Liv tuned the motor to make it more powerful, producing a performance-oriented riding style. The lightweight, compact SyncDrive Pro motor is used primarily on Liv’s high-performance models.
Innovation, manufacturing expertise and a motor system powered by Yamaha all combine to expand any rider’s abilities. SyncDrive Sport offers three support modes and is equipped on E-bikes that are used for both everyday riding and for more demanding off-road riding. This small mid-drive motor delivers a massive maximum 80Nm of torque and is widely acclaimed for its performance and reliability.
The MIPS BPS (Brain Protection System) is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion. The rotational motion is a combination of rotational energy (angular velocity) and rotational forces (from angular acceleration) that both affects the brain and increases the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. MIPS BPS has been scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain.
A tailor-made feel is now achievable through Particle Flow Technology, which are free-flowing particles are inserted into two separate pockets within the saddle structure. The particles mold to the rider’s unique pelvic contact condition, reducing pressure points by more than 20 percent and distributing pressure across a broader contact area. The result is optimal performance through superior comfort and support.
Wind protection, durable waterrepellent finishes and laminations are engineered to fend off windy and rainy conditions, while including breathability to assistance your body in regulation of body temperature.
Permanent denier gradient transfer technology uses capillary action to pull moisture away from the skin to the fabric surface for rapid evaporation and quick drying. • Heat Ventilation • Moisture Transfer • Highly Breathable • Highly Strechable • Perspiration Capillary Action
Giant Contact series saddles all feature the UniClip system mount. UniClip is a unique, proprietary design that enhances the overall aesthetic of the bike while providing a secure mounting system for exclusive Giant accessories.
