Liv/giant Avail Advanced SL Shines!

December 1, 2012

Liv/giant introduced the Avail Advanced SL, a high-performance women's endurance road bike, earlier this year. BikeRadar recently put it to the test on the roads of Colorado.

After two days of riding the Avail Advanced SL 1 model near BikeRadar’s Boulder, Colorado, office, Lorna Adley reported: “We found ourselves easily pushing the limits of our comfort zone at high speed, beautifully carving what are typically white-knuckle corners. In fact, we even hit a personal record on the descent without even trying—not bad for a maiden voyage on an unfamiliar machine.”

In this “first ride” review, Lorna writes: “Overall, we found that the Avail felt natural and intuitive straight out of the box.” The impressive write-up goes on to describe many of the Avail Advanced SL 1’s features, such as Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting, and the integrated seat post (ISP) design that the Avail Advanced SL 1 and Avail Advanced SL 0 share.
