The Liv Intrigue LT also features the new integrated storage system.

The range, as it were, is two models both made from ALUXX SL-Grade aluminium.

Liv press release:

Liv introduces the all-new Liv Intrigue LT Series

New dual-suspension long-travel mountain bike is the brand’s first to offer a mixed-wheel configuration.

Liv, the company dedicated to getting more women on bikes, today unveiled the new Intrigue LT series. Increased suspension and the latest technology allow riders to adjust the bike’s geometry–making it Liv’s most versatile and capable long-travel trail bike. The series includes two models featuring Liv’s lightweight ALUXX SL-Grade aluminium.

“We developed the Intrigue LT because women who ride need equipment that matches both their fearlessness and drive to advance their skills,” said Ludi Scholz, Liv Global Off-road Category Manager. “There were no compromises with this bike. It’s intentionally designed to give riders everything they need to have fun and shred rugged trails with masterful control and ease.”

The Intrigue LT is equipped with 160mm front suspension and 150mm in the rear, the most travel offered in the Liv lineup. Following Liv’s commitment to putting women first, suspension is custom tuned for women by women–providing optimal performance for the rider.

Featuring the new flip chip Maestro 3, riders can change the head tube angle, seat tube angle, and bottom bracket height to high, mid, or low settings depending on the terrain and wheel configuration. On average, the change between each of the three positions is 0.4 degrees for the head tube and seat tube angles and 5mm of bottom bracket drop. For frame sizes M and L, the flip chip also enables the change of rear wheel size between 27.5-inch and 29-inch, providing stability for different terrain and riding preference.

Frame sizes XS and S are solely designed with a mixed-wheel configuration–29-inch wheel up front and 27.5-inch wheel in the rear. This mixed-wheel configuration optimizes rear wheel travel and provides a nimble rear end and a fast-rolling, stable front end. Frame sizes M and L come out of the box with 29-inch wheels up front and in the rear, but are mixed-wheel compatible, providing riders with a customizable riding experience should they choose to swap to a 27.5-inch wheel in the rear.

Additionally, the Intrigue LT features the new integrated storage system, a sleek storage solution built directly into the down tube of the frame for additional space. A clean, low-profile latch opening comes with a water-resistant bag to store snacks or essential tools.

The Intrigue LT series is available in sizes XS, S, M, and Large.

    Is Liv not part of Giant and will these bikes have the same stunningly great warranty as Giant bikes?

    would be astounded if anyone who reads the forum buys a (new) Giant/Liv tbh given the recent thread

    Thus voiding any warranty.

    Warranty denied as I stripped the bike down?

    Memory may be long, but as per the Unexpected consequences of aging thread forumites might not remember all the details (or indeed why theu opened a thread on Giant bikes).

    I was literally waiting for this, I bet every single bit of giant uk’s marketing literature has encouragements to void the warranty. Hilarious.

    It’s properly funny how the STW staff have started trolling us lot.
    Or have they got it in for Giant too?

    I am pretty sure they just copied the Giant press release.

    I mean this part of the screed below positively encourages you to fettle. It seems like the want you to change the flip chip on the mountain to suit the terrain? Which, in the immortal words above would thereby invalidate the warranty.

    Featuring the new flip chip Maestro 3, riders can change the head tube angle, seat tube angle, and bottom bracket height to high, mid, or low settings depending on the terrain and wheel configuration. On average, the change between each of the three positions is 0.4 degrees for the head tube and seat tube angles and 5mm of bottom bracket drop. For frame sizes M and L, the flip chip also enables the change of rear wheel size between 27.5-inch and 29-inch, providing stability for different terrain and riding preference.

    It would be really funny if it wasn’t so bloody sad.

    Can it be pure coincidence that there are Giant/Liv stories suddenly appearing?

    Will you need a Giant authorised mechanic to fit and remove the snacks from the onboard storage too?

    What’s going on with the seatpost? and would you have to take it to a Giant authorised dealer to have it adjusted

    looks like there’s not enough seatpost in the frame, possibly leading to a crack in the ST/TT junction.

    Are Giant trolling the population of STW?

    Love how this has spilled onto the Pinkbike’s article comments too!

    just in the same manner that anyone posts anything involving a monorail… requires automatic Simpsons quotes….

     

    it will be the same now on for Giant…

    “What’s it called?

    “Warranty…

    Warranty..

    Once again!

    Warranty!”
