2014 saw LIV launch as a standalone brand, a women’s specific range from Giant. With a comprehensive range of hardtail and suspension bikes, it grows to meet the demand for a growing segment.

Fast forward to 2016 the range is super strong and complete. With the addition of the Intrigue SX for 2016 with generous suspension travel and high end spec, the women’s enduro category now has a serious contender.

Intrigue SX

Based around the aluminium Giant Trance 27.5 platform, the Intrigue SX is not going to be afraid of tough terrain. With 140/160mm travel, slack head angle, wider bars, meatier tyres this bike speaks stability and confidence. For steep terrain, or pushing the speed limits this is the one.

The Intrigue SX goes for – $4799
