Details

Got a need for speed? How about brilliant handling and lightning fast acceleration? Well, look no further than Liv's Obsess Advanced 2! The beautiful composite frame offers low weight, exceptional on-trail performance, and a cross country pro-level ride. You'll find phenomenal fit and comfort thanks to the dialed Liv women's specific geometry. Add to that the speed and control of 27.5-inch wheels equipped with grippy Schwalbe tires, and you can understand why this XC rocket is such a game changer. This Obsess is equipped with a 100mm Fox 32 Float fork, and a Shimano drivetrain with Shimano SLX hydraulic brakes for the ultimate in riding performance. You also get a selection of Giant's Contact components, and a women's-specific saddle, keeping your needs met!

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.
