Considering a big gravel adventure? How about an epic gravel race? Liv builds gravel bikes that aren't compromises. Their carbon fiber Devote Advanced series bicycles deliver incredible performance and versatility that also fit female riders better.
The Devote Advanced 2 is built around an Advanced-Grade Composite frame and all-carbon fork. Details like a tapered head tube, 12mm thru-axles, rack and bottle mounts galore, and internal cable routing make the Devote Advanced 2 a well-rounded machine with attention to detail. A PowerCore press-fit bottom bracket helps deliver power to the rear wheel without power-robbing flex. There's clearance for 700x45c tires when the riding really gets into the wilderness.
Shimano's latest 11-speed GRX gravel components are found throughout the Devote Advanced 2. The clutch-equipped Shadow-style rear derailleur, the reshaped dual-control levers, and the flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes are all Shimano GRX units. An alloy Praxis 48/32T crankset and a Shimano 11-34T cassette boast a wide gearing range for tackling challenging inclines.
Rolling stock consists of Giant's P-X2 Disc wheels and treaded 700x40c CrossCut AT1 gravel tires. They're set up tubeless right off the floor, and bring confident grip to every unpaved mile.
The Devote Advanced 2 has a great frameset for a smooth ride quality, but the "furniture" also plays a part when handling broken pavement and washboard surfaces. The cleverly shaped Composite D-Fuse seatpost soaks up harsh impacts, while a flared Contact XR D-Fuse drop handlebar also deals with hand-numbing vibration. A women's Liv Approach saddle completes this gravel-ready machine built for adventure.
