It is refreshing to know that Giant treat all riders with equal respect.
Short or tall and anywhere in between. Male or Female, there is a correctly Frame Sized and equipped Bike to suit all needs.
Frame Sizes and dimensions have been carefully researched to Provide the perfect fit for women of most frame sizes, from as Short as 148cm, right up to a tall 184cm. For those few women who are in excess of 184cm, a Large or Extra Large men's Talon 3 is an equivalent bike.
The following chart provides a good indication of the correct frame size bike for the various rider height ranges.
XS 148 cm - 164 cm
S 158 cm - 170 cm
M 164 cm - 176 cm
L 170 cm - 184 cm
There are a number of bikes on the market that would be a pretty good option for someone looking for a recreational Mountain Bike. However, the Liv Tempt 3 from Giant, is a cut above most other offerings with a host of design features incorporated specifically with women in mind.
Frame geometry is a primary consideration, but saddle type, handlebar width, grip shape and crank length are other considerations.
Hydraulic disc brakes are a really nice feature, Providing great stopping power with a minimum of pressure applied to the brake lever.
Front suspension soaks up the bumps and road irregularities, giving a more comfortable ride.
The whole bike is aimed at ease of use and this is evidenced in the easy to use 14 speed gears which operate with not much more than a push of a button.
