Liv Intrigue Advanced Pro 1 2021 in review – a well-known bike thoroughly revised

Apr 2021 · Antonia Buckenlei

The Liv Intrigue is an evergreen in Liv’s portfolio. For the coming season, Giant's women-specific sister-brand have thoroughly revised the bike, which now has less travel but bigger 29" wheels. Does the concept also work for petite riders?

Highs
  • Good-natured, easy handling

  • Efficient chassis

  • Good value for money

Lows
  • Twitchy at high speeds

  • Unnecessarily long seat tube limits freedom of movement downhill
