LIV LANGMA ADVANCED 2 DISC
I just want a bike that will inspire me to line up at the start. .
TThe people of Tibet refer to Mount Everest as Langma. It means ‘highest achievable point’, which is exactly where this line of women’s bikes wants to take you. The Advanced 2 Disc is the entry-level model, weighing about 8.5kg. It has full Shimano 105, and Giant Conduct hydraulic disc brakes – the cable-actuated master cylinder is integrated into the faceplate of the stem. It’s not a featherweight compared to the other bikes in this line-up, but the way it jumps, surges and climbs is impressive. It responds well to tiny hip twitches, and I had extra confidence to take corners hotter than usual. If you’re serious about winning races and have R80k to drop, you might want to consider the highest-end Langma. I just want a bike that will inspire me to line up at the start. The Advanced Disc is that bike.
