Looking for a high performance road bike, but need a little extra versatility for tackling triathlon races too? Then the Envie Advanced Tri is the perfect option. Built as a women’s specific version of the Giant Propel, the Liv Envie Advanced is a high performance road bike that features an aggressive riding position, aerodynamic tubing, and responsive handling. The Tri version is exactly the same as the Envie Advanced, but it adds in clip-on aero bars. These bar extensions provide an additional riding position with your arms out in front, which gives you in a more aerodynamic profile for cutting through the wind. For tackling time trial races or triathlon events, this aero position is crucial to minimising wind drag and increasing comfort on longer distance stages.
Because the Envie Advanced Tri shares the same frame as the regular Envie Advanced, which means it’s also made from T-700 carbon fibre that is laid up in Giant’s own factory in Taiwan. The frame uses large profile tubing that is more aerodynamic than regular round tubes, and that helps the Envie to slice through the air with greater speed and efficiency. The Envie Advanced Tri also features neat hidden brake callipers, an aerodynamic seatpost shape and an integrated carbon fibre fork. As a complete system, the Envie Advanced Tri is a high performance race machine that is sure to give you a performance gain over lesser bikes.
You can get into the Envie Advanced Tri range with the Tri 2 model, though the Tri 1 steps things up with a high-end carbon race wheelset that helps to increase the Envie’s aerodynamic capabilities.
