Liv Introduces Pique, An XC//Trail Mountain Bike That Delivers Peak Performance
All-new design debuts with 120mm of race-ready cross country suspension
Liv, the cycling brand dedicated to the female cyclist, unleashes the Pique series, the all-new performance XC racing and trail riding bikes for 2017. Featuring lightweight Advanced-grade composite and ALUXX, Pique satisfies the rider who is looking to up her game on challenging XC terrain. Following the success of Liv’s Lust, evolution yields the new and improved XC race and trail bike, Pique, which steps up the suspension to 120mm, features wider boost spacing, and brings the addition of the Pique SX with a 140mm fork.
Using the 3F design philosophy, Liv’s engineering team designed the Pique to offer the best fit for women—a process that involves analyzing global body dimension studies and product testing with professional mountain bikers like Leigh Donovan, Katie Holden and Lindsey Voreis.
Pique Advanced composite models feature a women-specific carbon lay-up perfectly tuned for stiffness that creates power and trail dampening compliance where women need it most. New to Liv’s composite off-road line-up this year is the addition of a carbon upper rocker arm made with Advanced Forged Composite Technology, a high pressure molding process that creates complex shapes in multi-directional carbon layups for maximum strength and lightness. The Pique has updated Maestro suspension technology, which is mounted in a Trunnion mount to shorten the chainstay and lower the center of gravity for better handling, and increased efficiency and agility.
Liv strives to make bikes to fit the needs of every woman, which is why Pique is offered in a wide range of models, from the approachable Pique 3, to the Pique Advanced 0—with the latest and greatest components like SRAM Eagle XX1 1×12 Drivetrains and premium RockShox RS-1 forks. Fast up, fast down; Pique is the versatile cross country or trail riding bike with an affinity for speed, aimed to help each rider achieve her peak performance.
Pique Advanced and Pique join Liv’s 2017 off-road lineup that features newcomers Hail, Embolden and returning favorite, Obsess. Liv’s 2017 premium off-road lineup, offer frames that are compatible with the latest the industry has to offer—like boost hub spacing that improves stiffness, trail handling and provides increased tire clearance for riders who prefer wider rims and tires.
The Pique series is comprehensive and structured to meet the needs of a broad range of female mountain bikers. Pique Advanced composite bikes are available in three model specifications: Pique Advanced 0, Pique Advanced 1 and Pique Advanced 2. The ALUXX aluminum Pique is available also in three model specifications: Pique 1, Pique 2, Pique 3. The Pique SX, with a longer travel 140mm fork, is available in both Advanced composite and ALUXX aluminum options: Pique Advanced SX, Pique SX.
