Weight: The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.


CoMax Composite Technology is an all-new frame material from Giant, the world leader in composite engineering. With a balanced blend of comfort and light weight, CoMax framesets are built and tuned to deliver a better cycling experience for sport and fitness riders.



 

Materials:
Optimized blend of Performance Grade raw carbon material and fiber-reinforced polymer delivers a ride experience that is both smooth and efficient.

Resin:
Performance Formula resin features a high level of void minimization (bubbles) while maintaining good strength characteristics.

Construction Techniques:
Modified Monocoque Construction:
The front triangle (downtube, headtube, toptube, seattube) is assembled and molded as one continuous piece. This front half is then joined to the rear chainstays and seatstays in a secondary process. Modified Monocoque eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.

Performance Benefits:
Increased Comfort:
CoMax framesets offer up to 10 percent better compliance compared to aluminum framesets.

Lighter Weight:
CoMax framesets are up to 200 grams lighter than comparable aluminum framesets.


RideSense:
Giant’s all-new chainstay-integrated, wireless data transmitter. The removable transmitter sends wheel-speed and cadence information directly to any ANT+ compatible computer

 

Compact Road Design:

 



In the late 1990s Giant pioneered a radical new frame shape to give its professional road racers a competitive edge. Driven by a desire to create lighter and faster bikes, Giant's Compact Road Design changed the look—and the performance capabilities—of competitive road bikes forever.

Now, 17 years later, Compact Road Design is still the standard in high-performance bikes. The concept is simple: A toptube that slopes downward from the headtube to the seattube reduces the size of the front and rear triangles. Smaller triangles create a lighter, stiffer bike.

Whatever the frame material, aluminum or composite, Compact Road Design improves the ride. Here's how:

Lighter
Compact Road’s most distinctive feature, the downward-sloping toptube, results in smaller front and rear triangles on the frame. Because the triangles are smaller, less material is needed. Less material equals less weight.

Stiffer:
Picture two triangles made from equal diameter tubing. The smaller, more compact triangle uses shorter tubes. The larger triangle requires longer tubes. It’s easy to see which is more structurally sound—the smaller triangle is stiffer, less susceptible to flexing and twisting. And on a performance road frame, stiffer is faster.

Smoother:
With traditional geometry, builders increase stiffness by using stiffer material. That might help you sprint faster but it also makes for a less comfortable ride. With Compact Road, Giant engineers are able to design frames with just the right amount of vertical compliance. You get a smoother, more comfortable ride.

Liv's unique 3F design philosophy ensures that, as a female rider, you are getting the best bike for your riding style. 3F stands for "Fit, Form, Function." These are the elements that guide Liv engineers and designers as they create your bike, apparel and gear. The 3F design philosophy produces the best and most appealing cycling equipment to help all women feel confident and enjoy the ride.

FIT
Liv bikes, apparel and gear are designed specifically for women. Liv's team of female designers and engineers consider all aspects of a woman's unique strengths and physical characteristics to create the only complete product collection designed solely for women. Examples of this include:

Better Fit:

Because of the sloping toptube and lower standover height, it’s easier for riders of all sizes to get the perfect fit. With greater adjustability and up to six sizes per series, even Giant’s most demanding pro athletes, women and men of all different heights, always have a perfect fit with stock-size frames.
