The Pique Advanced Pro 29 1 is built to be hammered down technical singletrack and help you develop skills and confidence along the way. Competition? Exploration? This race-ready machine will get you there! The Pique Advanced Pro's ultralight Advanced-grade Composite carbon fiber frame and rear triangle makes the bike feel effortless on long climbs. The fit and geometry wasn't built for "Joe average", and fits female riders better! Liv's exclusive Maestro rear suspension helps keep the rear wheel planted in rock gardens and root-strewn trails. The rear Fox Float DPS Performance Elite shock is air-adjustable and is installed in a trunnion mount that reduces lateral shock binding. 100mm of rear suspension travel is useful when tackling technical descents! Up front, an air-adjustable Fox 32 Float SC Performance Elite suspension fork boasts 100mm of travel, bringing confident control in the twisties. A lockout switch on the left handlebar shuts off the suspension when blasting down gravel surfaces and fire roads. A tapered OverDrive head tube adds an extra dash of precision to the Pique Advanced Pro's handling. Anchoring the crankset is a press-fit OverDrive bottom bracket, reducing drivetrain flex. Internal cable routing adds a sleek look to the Pique Advanced Pro 1 as well. The frame design also allows downtube bottle cages on all frame sizes, XS-L.
Shimano supplies the 12-speed Deore XT shifters and Deore XT Shadow+ rear derailleur, adding precise operation to every gear change. A Shimano Deore XT 30T alloy crankset and 10-51T Deore XT cassette adds a huge gearing range, helping to make short work of roller-coaster singletrack. Tubeless carbon fiber XCR-1 29 wheels accelerate out of every corner with ease! A 25mm wide rim allows the tire to produce a wider "footprint" on the trails, enhancing traction and reducing rolling resistance. Those high-tech hoops are wrapped with tubeless 29x2.25" Maxxis Recon Race tires, bringing boatloads of grip to every mile. Shimano Deore XT hydraulic disc brakes add positive stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.
When the Pique Advanced Pro comes with a dropper post, you know the engineers ride off-road, too. This bike's Contact Switch dropper post features a bar-mounted remote lever to get the Sylvia SL saddle out of the way on steep "tip-ins". An alloy Contact SL stem and Contact SLR XC Flat handlebar finishes this off-road trail-conquerer.
You've gotta see the Dark Iridescent color in person!
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
