2013 Avail Advanced SL First Look

The all-new Avail Advanced SL is engineered for the ultimate ride. Designed with Liv/giant’s 3F philosophy, it’s the most advanced composite bike built specifically for women. The frame, handcrafted with Advanced SL-grade composite, has a specially shaped integrated seatpost that increases frame compliance to minimize rider fatigue. Other features include the OverDrive 2 steerer tube technology, which gives it razor-sharp handling and steering, plus the MegaDrive downtube, PowerCore bottom bracket and RideSense ANT+ sensor for wireless data transmission.

WeightHow much does this bike weigh? It’s a common question, and rightly so. But the truth is, there are no industry standards for claiming bike weights—and this leads to a lot of misinformation. Variances exist based on size, frame material, finish and hardware. And as bikes get lighter, these differences become more critical. At Giant, we believe the only way to truly know the weight of any particular bike is to find out for yourself at your local retailer.
