Hop on Liv's Lust 2 and get ready for the ride of a lifetime! This aluminum XC rig boasts Giant's Maestro rear suspension and a Fox Float CTD shock to tame rough terrain, while fast-rolling 27.5-inch wheels glide over tough obstacles. A tapered OverDrive steerer and 15mm thru-axle on the 100mm-travel Fox 32 Float CTD fork ensure a true-tracking front end to tame even challenging terrain. A Shimano 2 x 10-speed drivetrain keeps things smooth and easy, with its light action and precision. Liv's women's-specific geometry provides a fit and comfort level that is unbeatable, and the Giant Contact components only add to the experience. Other awesome components include Shimano hydraulic brakes, Schwalbe tires, and a supportive Liv women's-specific saddle.

OverDrive delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug

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.
