2016 Liv Lust Advanced 2
Giant is leading the way with women's specific bikes. Launching the dedicated women's brand, Liv, a couple of years ago, there's an offering in just about every category today. From hardtail XC bikes to long-travel enduro bikes, they're all designed specifically for women.
The Lust is Liv's full-suspension XC bike. Fast-rolling and comfortable, the Lust is a popular bike for the Spring Challenge, Motatapu and XC races like that. 100mm of travel and a good spec add up to a highly competent XC bike.
Here we have the carbon version, the Lust Advanced 2, with a composite front triangle and seat post, in a beautiful matte finish. They look really great in the sun.
The spec includes Shimano 2x10 SLX drivetrain, for a wide range of gears, and Shimano hydraulic brakes. The Lust also gets all of Fox's new 2016 technology, including the FIT4 dampers that were only found in the high-end Factory forks before.
