Intrigue SX Makes Bike Magazine’s Bible of Bike Tests


In the 2016 Bible of Bike Tests, Bike Magazine reviewed the new Liv Intrigue SX, and calls the bike, A top choice if your dream day is spent dominating descents.”

New for 2016, the Intrigue SX boasts a component upgrade, slackening the head angle in comparison to the Intrigue 1 with the addition of a 160 mm RockShox Pike RCT3 and making the ride more plush with a 140 mm RockShox Monarch Plus Debonair RT, a package that Bike Magazine’s gear editor Ryan Palmer says makes the SX, “the radder version of Liv’s Intrigue.”

Bike Magazine’s trio of female bike testers put the Intrigue through its paces at Burke Mountain in Vermont, discussing their experience on video: “I felt like everything about the bike was very confidence inspiring. So, when I think about the rider that this bike is for, it's for someone who already likes to go downhill fast and who likes to eat up big roots and big rocks fast; or it's for the person who just wants to feel more comfortable on trickier terrain.”

Vernon Felton, Bible of Bike Tests Moderator, also took the opportunity for a little Q&A with Liv’s Global Marketing Manager, Janette Sherman, driving home what sets the Intrigue SX—and all of Liv’s bikes—apart from the competition. “From start to finish these bikes are engineered, built and marketed all in-house, by a team of passionate and driven women. We own the entire process from start to finish. No other brand can say that."
