Liv Hail Women’s Bike Review

2018 Liv Hail 2

Liv Hail Bike Review:

The Liv Hail is the modern day woman’s cure for trail boredom.  This longer travel trail bike is a wonderful addition to the Liv line from years past.  Not just catering to women starting their singletrack riding journey’s, Liv now has a real player in the longer travel category for lady shredders.

All hail the Hail!  This bike offers a lot of bang for the buck with 160 mm of front and rear travel. The bike remains playful with minimal seated pedal bob. Point her downhill and you get a real feel for what it’s like to descend like a pro. Climbing light, you might be tempted to do a few laps on this bike and not complain about having to pedal to the top.

Liv’s Hail offers 160 mm of front and rear suspension aboard 27.5″ wheels.

The Liv Hail is not a one-hit wonder, but it will take all your hits and leave you wondering, how have I lived without this one for so long? With plenty of suspension to absorb all bumps large, small and everything in between, the Hail is an all-day adventurer for the charger in all of us.
