The 2016 Liv Envie Advanced 1 is the cream of this year’s crop, making Bicycling Magazine’s coveted Editors' Choice list—an honor that is announced every year at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterrey, CA.
Combining Liv’s women’s-specific Advanced-grade Composite frame with Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and a fit designed from the ground up for the female rider, Bicycling’s editors noted that this aerodynamic road bike should not be put in the “race only” box. As one tester puts it,“[I’d] love to see a woman buy this bike, love it, ride the hell out of it, and feel confident in any situation.”
This fast, light and pretty machine sold the editors on value. In fact, when one tester found out that the Envie Advanced 1 only packs a $2,600 USD price tag, she, “hit the ‘yes’ buzzer so hard it got jammed.”
