The women of CCC-Liv have gotten to know their Langma Advanced SL quite well over the past two months. After meeting their hill-climbing, sprint-ready steed at the first team camp in December, CCC-Liv flew Down Under and took flight on the bike, igniting the peloton and securing top-ten finishes. On March 2, the team’s Spring Classics campaign begins in Belgium where the Langma will play a starring role. Take a closer look:
Engineered with Liv’s lightest composite frame material, the Langma Advanced SL frame is created from the ground up for women. Testing for this bike began years ago when Marianne Vos voiced the need for an all-around race machine.
“For me, riding the Langma was not a totally new experience, but it feels good,” said Vos during team camp in December. “It’s light, it’s stiff, it quickly responds on what you do. I think it’s an all-around bike that you can use all year – in the Spring Classics, on the cobbles, in the hills, in the mountains, on the crits. To have such an all-around bike that is not compromising in any way, it’s the best you can have. You just ride your bike and get comfortable with it and try to make the best results with it.”
The bike features the all-new SRAM RED eTap AXS, the next evolution of the company’s elite drivetrain. Enhancements like the X-Range cassette with a wider range and smoother gear progression, a unique Flattop chain with Orbit chain management, completely customizable control with the SRAM AXS app, integrated Quarq DZero power meter, and more, the new SRAM Red eTap AXS system takes CCC-Liv’s Langma to the next level.
Liv Contact SLR Saddle, Giant Contact SLR composite handlebars, Contact SL stems, Giant NeosTrack GPS computer, and Giant WheelSystems round out the build.
