Sharing the same high-tech carbon frame as the Envie Advanced Pro, the Envie Advanced represents stunning value for money. Thanks to a clever parts spec and the change to a carbon fork with an alloy steerer tube, the Envie Advanced is the ideal starting point for those riders who are getting serious about their racing, but don’t want to spend the earth just to get to the start line. Based on the Giant Propel platform, the Envie Advanced is an aero race bike that is purpose-built for female riders wanting a high performance ride for cutting up criterium racecourses. It offers a much lower and more aggressive riding position than the Avail endurance road bike, which helps you to get out of the wind and into an efficient aero tuck. Not into racing so much? Then the Avail is the comfort option in the Liv road range.

Just like the Giant Propel, the Envie Advanced is handmade from Advanced grade carbon fibre in Giant’s Taiwanese factory. The frame features hidden brake callipers and teardrop tubing to reduce wind drag, while the oversized bottom bracket junction ensures all of your pedalling efforts are directed straight into the rear tyre. Like all Liv frames, the Envie features a riding position that is better suited to the female form, and Liv offer it all the way down to an X-Small size to suit shorter riders. Combined with a female-specific saddle and cockpit, the Envie Advanced is designed to be an extension of your body.

Starting at the base-level Envie Advanced 2, the Envie Advanced range comes with the same carbon frame and fork, a lightweight Giant PA-2 wheelset and slick Shimano 11-speed shifting.
