Better bikes aren't just lighter, they're more useful. The Avail AR 1 tries -and succeeds- at doing exactly that.


The Avail AR 1 is Liv's best performing endurance road machine in aluminum. Giant's own ALUXX-Grade aluminum frame bestowes durability as well as light weight. The fit is more upright than aggressive, allowing the rider to get a better look at the road ahead. Need a short standover height? The Extra-Extra-Small size needs only a 25.7" inseam! The Avail AR 1 handles commutes and day trips well, thanks to mounts for cargo racks, bottle cages and fenders (accessories sold separately). Room for tires up to 38mm wide makes for multi-surface versatility, From terrible pavement to hardpan and gravel, the Avail AR 1 is ready to tackle the road less traveled.


Shimano's 11-speed 105 components are found throughout the Avail AR 1's drivetrain, including the adjustable-reach levers, front derailleur, Shadow-style rear derailleur and the hydraulic disc brakes. Got challenging hills or carrying cargo? Or both? The Avail AR 1's 50/34T compact Shimano crankset is matched to a wide-range 11-34T Shimano 105 cassette, boasting a massive gearing range for roller-coaster roads. P-S2 Disc alloy wheels are lightweight and set up tubeless for your first ride. Giant's own 700x32c Gavia Fondo 2 tires have a slight tread pattern, adding grip on imperfect surfaces. The Avail AR 1's hydraulic disc brakes are also Shimano 105 units, ensuring confident stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. The Contact saddle sits atop a clever D-Fuse saddle that is designed to flex backward slightly when bouncing over potholes or railway tracks. Up front, an alloy Contact stem and D-Fuse alloy road handlebar complete this road-ready machine.
