Climb and descend with a whole new level of confidence aboard Liv's Intrigue 1! This all-mountain machine smooths technical terrain with 140mm of Maestro rear travel and a 140mm Fox fork with plenty of adjustability for all trail conditions. Liv's ALUXX SL aluminum frame is durable, efficient, and deftly handles tricky topography. The geometry is quick, confident, capable and just feels right. Everywhere you ride, speed comes easy with Giant 27.5-inch wheels, Schwalbe tires and a Giant bar, stem, and dropper seatpost that gets you in the perfect position for tackling whatever comes your way. Plus, the Intrigue's 2x10-speed Shimano drivetrain keeps pedaling fluid and smooth while Shimano disc brakes deliver pure stopping power.
27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.
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.
