Women’s specific bike brand Liv has launched the new EnviLiv range for 2023. The original EnviLiv was launched in 2013 in the form of a race performance bike named the Envie. This bike received an overhaul in 2019 becoming the EnviLiv, and now the range will benefit from another update and further refinement.
The new range will be comprised of three categories and five individual models. The Advanced series will comprise the Advanced One and Two models. The Advanced Pro will hold the Advanced Pro and Advanced Pro AXS whilst the top-end Advanced SL will only be available as a frameset.
Liv is part of the Giant family which means it can use a cascading spec of Giant handlebars and stems across the different models paired with groupsets from Shimano and Sram.
The Liv Racing TeqFind and Team Jayco AlUla teams race on Liv bikes and Liv says feedback from these sponsored athletes has gone into helping design the new EnviLiv range. Liv claims it was made for the criterium, road, and Olympic triathlon racing offering optimal aerodynamic and stiffness-to-weight performance.
“Designed with input from our athletes, our intention is to give women a bike that matches the commitment they put into their training and the race results they want to achieve,” said Meg Hung, Liv Global Bicycle Category Manager.
The new range has benefited from enhanced aerodynamic work with what Liv calls Aerosystem shaping technology applied across the range to enhance aero performance at every yaw angle, using data provided by Computational Fluid Dynamics research and wind tunnel testing.
A complete range overhaul
The new range will consist of four new models and one frameset. The Advanced Pro SL frameset is the lightest in the range, using Liv’s advanced SL-Grade carbon composite and will come in Team Liv Racing TeqFind livery. The frameset uses a press-fit bottom bracket standard, aero-profiled seatpost, slightly dropped seatstays, and wider aero-focused fork legs which meet an aerodynamically profiled headtube area.
The Advanced Pro series features the Advanced Pro and Advanced Pro AXS models. The Pro frame is 106.5 grams heavier than the SL but shaves 205 grams of the previous generation’s frame weight using the Liv Advanced-grade carbon composite. The bike also comes with the all-new Liv Contact Aero SLR carbon…
