WOMEN’S ADVENTURE MAGAZINE PRAISES THE TRANCE X1 W FOR “FIT, FORM AND FUNCTION”

March 6, 2012

The Spring 2012 issue of Women’s Adventure magazine spends some time with a few high-end mountain bikes and the pro women who put them through their paces. Naturally, they had to check out the Liv/giant Trance X1 W with Giant Factory Off-Road Team pro Kelli Emmett.

ON THE RIDE:
“It is the best all-around bike, because it’s lightweight, climbs great, and is the most fun bike you can ride downhill. Its five inches of suspension smooths out the roughest of terrain, so riding through techie sections becomes even easier. It’s my all-time favorite bike and the one I most love to ride. The shorter, women’s-specific frame also eases handling to keep the bike under control while ripping down gnarly descents.”

ON THE SPEC:
“The aluminum frame – outfitted with narrow handlebars, short-reach brake levers, a women’s-specific saddle, and a tapered headtube for precise steering on singletrack – enables a velvety ride, whether you’re out for a morning cruise or a 24-hour race.”

BUYING ADVICE:
“Fit, Form and Function (3F) lie at the heart of all Liv/giant designs, with this bike being especially equipped for easy climbing and smooth descending.”
