From the geometry of the bike frames, to the fit of the jerseys and shoes, the entire Liv range of cycling products has been designed and optimised to fit perfectly with women’s bodies and cycling needs. See below for a brief overview of this innovative women's cycling brand.
First established in 2011 by Giant as a new line of women’s specific products, Liv has since grown into it’s own standalone brand driven by the goal of getting more women on bikes.
Liv has transcended the retail space, connecting women to the bike not just through the great range of products available, but by supporting them in their endeavours as well. Liv works closely with female competitive riders and cycling ambassadors to create a support network of women who work hard to help encourage others to start riding and improve their time on the bike.
When Giant created Liv, they did so knowing that cycling products were often not designed specifically for women. Liv is about the whole package, providing you with a complete range of female-specific products to suit all your cycling needs.
