Summing up the ride qualities of the 2014 Giant Avail Advanced 1, Bicycling Magazine wrote, “The Avail was comfortable during long outings, yet still agile and fun to ride. It responded readily to rider input without feeling twitchy, whether we were out of the saddle, climbing or making swoopy turns while descending. If your goals include centuries, all-day outings, or even a dirt-road race, you’ll likely find the Avail suited to the task.”
The material, engineering and smooth lines of the Advanced-grade composite frameset make it incredibly responsive and efficient for climbing and sprinting – but not at the cost of comfort. It features women’s-specific endurance geometry, an OverDrive 2 steerer tube which provides precise handling while cornering and descending, a Powercore bottom bracket for optimal power transfer, and a Ride Sense ANT+ sensor for wireless data transmission. Avail Advanced gives you every advantage on the road.
