Today, light road bikes are more than that. They're smoother, better-fitting and take you further. The Avail Advanced 2 does all those things and more.
The Avail Advanced 2 checks several boxes for many riders. The wide size range allows riders with an inseam as short as 26" to get comfortable on an XXS size. The Advanced-grade Composite carbon fiber used to build the frame not only keeps overall weight low, but also soaks up fatiguing road vibration. Even the frame shape and Composite D-Fuse seatpost soaks up impacts from bad railway crossings and potholes better than conventional round frame tubes. A tapered OverDrive head tube adds an extra dose of handling precision up front for fast turns and descents. Even the press-fit PowerCore bottom bracket anchors the crankset better than threaded units, eliminating energy-robbing frame flex. The wheels feature thru-axle hubs for improved handling and disc brake performance.
Shimano's upgraded 11-speed 105 components are found throughout the drivetrain, including the adjustable-reach levers, front and rear derailleurs and 11-34T cassette. Smooth operation, precise shifting and long service life are all built into Shimano's excellent 105 components. A Shimano 50/34T compact crankset helps add a wide gearing range on long climbs. Light wheels can make all the difference in a bike's performance, and the Avail Advanced 2's feather-light alloy hoops take less effort to spin up. The wheelset is also tubeless-ready, allowing the use of Giant's Gavia Fondo 1 tubeless tires for lower rolling resistance. The Avail Advanced 2 employs Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brakes for outstanding braking performance in all conditions, rain or shine.
Liv's own Approach saddle for women sits atop the D-Fuse Composite seatpost, while an alloy Contact OverDrive stem and alloy Contact SL D-Fuse road handlebar complete this century-ready bike.
