Liv Cycling Unveils New Pique 29 Line

Introducing the Pique 29, Liv's first 29-inch wheeled mountain bike offering. The Pique is designed for riders that prioritize speed and performance above all else. Whether you want to hit the top step of the podium or the top of the mountain on epic rides, the Pique will deliver.

“The new Pique 29 series was designed for cross country racers who want to be on top of the podium, and endurance riders who love to go fast. This bike is incredibly agile and can charge steep uphill sections while also maintaining speed in flowy and technical terrain,” said Ludi Scholz, Liv global bicycle category manager.

 

Using Liv's 3F design, the Pique has been engineered from the ground up with women in mind. From the suspension tuning to the frame lay-up, every facet of the all-new Pique has been optimized for women mountain bikers. Liv Racing athlete Kaysee Armstrong on the Pique, “I rode the Pique 29 prototype for the first time at Sea Otter this spring and have been riding it in all of my races since."

Optimized to perform

Be it one of the Pique Advanced carbon line or the Pique ALUXX-SL models, the emphasis on acceleration, cornering and ability to handle the rough stuff stays true to the core. The top spec offering, Pique Advanced 29 0, sees a SRAM XX-1 Eagle drivetrain and FOX Factory Live-Valve suspension, truly a no-compromise racer. At the other end is the Pique 29 3, still featuring the SRAM Eagle drivetrain and RockShox suspension at a much more attainable price.

Leading Suspension Technology for Better Handling

The Pique 29 features 100mm of travel front and rear, and was extensively tested and tuned specifically for women with Liv’s Maestro suspension. Efficient pedaling, big hit compliance and trail smoothing responsiveness have all been tuned to work optimially with the trunnion-mounted rear shock across all spec levels.


Handcrafted Frame Designed for Efficiency

The Pique 29 Advanced Pro models are handcrafted with advanced-grade composite to provide an ultra-lightweight frame with enhanced stiffness. A new Advanced Forged Composite Technology upper rocker arm was also designed for increased stiffness, durability, and a lighter weight ride. The Pique 29 series includes a 30.9 mm diameter cross-country specific dropper seat post to enable the rider to lower her center of gravity on steeper terrain. Riders will find that the seat has an integrated “UniClip” to attach compatible bike accessories, while the frame design accommodates downtube water bottles on all sizes, X-Small through Large.


No Compromise Build

Designed to tackle serious climbs with ease and efficiency, the Pique 29 series features a PowerCore bottom bracket for unparalleled power transfer, and OverDrive steerer for precise steering. XCR Carbon Wheel System are spec'd on Advanced Pro models for strength, durability, stiffness for demanding cross-country riding. All models in the series were also designed with lightweight paint and are available in multiple colors and graphics.

The Pique 29 Advanced Pro and Pique 29 series will be available worldwide in September. Find your local Liv retailer online
