Cycling Weekly takes a look at the Olympic and World road race champion Marianne Vos’s Liv Envie Advanced bike after stage three of the Friends Life Women’s Tour.
Vos’s bike is a Liv Envie Advanced handcrafted by Giant. Giant’s Liv brand is dedicated solely for the female rider. The bike is equipped with Dura-Ace C35 carbon wheels with unbranded tubs.
Bulbous bottom bracket, the vogue on many current carbon frames.
Front Fouriers V-brake placed behind the fork for aerodynamics. Note the special gold accents to the decals on Vos’s bike to honour the Olympic road champion.
Vos uses Rotor’s QRings on the Dura Ace 11 speed crank spider. 172.5 crank arms with carbon Dura-Ace pedals. Tacx Tao carbon bottle cages.
Race transponder number 1. You can see the rear of the Giant ride sense speed pick up on the back of the stay.
Giant RS speed sensor on the inside of the left chain stay.
Fouriers V-brake system. All the decals accents on the Rabobank-Liv team bikes are orange apart from Vos’s bike which have gold accents to their detail.
Rear V-brake and seat stay detail all part of the aero design.
Fizik Antares saddle with gold detail to the rear side panels. Note the forward positioning of the saddle on the aero seat post.
Cut away in bar tape for the Di2 sprint buttons.
100mm PRO Vibe stem with PRO Vibe bars.
