Rocket up climbs, push your limits on descents, and revel in the singletrack on Liv's Lust 1! Liv's women's-specific geometry is optimized for female riders, meaning that the fit and comfort level are unbeatable. This aluminum XC rig boasts Giant's Maestro suspension and a Fox shock to tame rough terrain while fast-rolling 27.5-inch wheels float over tough obstacles. A tapered OverDrive steerer tube and 15mm thru-axle on the 100mm-travel Fox 32 fork ensure a true-tracking front end. Shimano 2x10-speed drivetrain keeps the shifting light and snappy, with its characteristic positive feel and precision. And the Giant Contact components only add to the experience. Other awesome components include Shimano hydraulic brakes, Schwalbe tubeless-ready tires, and a sleek, supportive, women's specific saddle.

27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.

27.5-Inch (650B) wheel/tire performance.

Efficiency: Increasing the wheel diameter decreases the angle of attack (the angle at which round objects meet square objects). The lower the angle, the easier it is to roll over obstacles and maintain momentum.

Traction: With a larger diameter, the tire's contact patch increases, putting more rubber on the trail. A 27.5-inch (650B) has nearly the same contact patch as a 29er for superb acceleration, braking and cornering.

Weight: The weight of a 27.5 wheel, tire and tube is only 5% more than an identically built 26-inch wheel. Compare this to a 12% increase with a 29-inch wheel. Lighter wheels mean a lighter bike, and better climbing and acceleration.
