Review: Liv Avail SL 1

   Words by Aaron Scott

   on 14/06/2017 14:23:01


The Liv Avail SL 1 is built for responsive, comfortable riding all day long. With a women’s specific design to create a stable riding position, the Avail provides a reliable, comfortable and efficient extension of your body that will make you the envy of your riding partners.

If you’re the kind of rider who might shy away from all-out competition to explore the open road for the weekend, the Avail might be the right bike for you. It strikes the ideal balance between lightweight and comfort, meaning you can enjoy a weekend riding in the mountains that bit more.

Price: £998.99

Discipline: Road

Usage: Sportive and Endurance

  • + ALUXX SL Frame
  • + Compact Road Design
  • + D-Fuse Seatpost

Frame and Forks

Giant’s ALUXX SL aluminium is used for the frame on the Avail; it is an extremely lightweight construction built for a high-performance strength-to-weight ratio. This material has been constructed using Giant’s legendary Compact Road Design and Liv’s female-specific 3F philosophy. Combined, they make for a highly-responsive frame and fork that is perfect for tackling climbs with ease and descending with confidence.


Other Stand-out Features

A key feature of the Avail SL is the D-Fuse seatpost, used to increase vertical compliance and ensure your body remains as comfortable as possible throughout a ride. By dampening vibration and road buzz, the D-Fuse seatpost allows riders to ride further and faster compared to a stiffer, less compliant setup; an important consideration if you love nothing more than conquering big miles.


The Envie Advanced 1 uses Shimano’s highly reliable 105 11-speed groupset. Well-renowned for its quality and value, 105 is an industry standard when it comes to performance road bikes. Shifting is crisp and light – without feeling flimsy – and with a compact chainset and 11-32 cassette, there will be few mountains this bike can’t tackle.


The Avail SL 1 uses Giant’s durable PR-2 wheelset, built for a combination of lightweight and reliability. They may not have the glamour of an expensive carbon-fibre set of hoops, but when it comes to churning out the miles throughout the year, the PR-2’s are perfect for the job. Acceleration is responsive and lively, whilst the alloy braking surface ensures consistent stopping power in a variety of conditions.

Finishing Kit

Sitting on top of the D-Fuse seatpost is a women’s specific Liv Contact Forward saddle (designed for female riders to remain comfortable as possible for long, endurance rides). Details such as this make the Avail SL perfect for riders wanting a bike ready to ride, straight from the showroom.
