GIant didn’t leave the best technology on the men’s bikes, but brought it to their women’s Avail line as well. The Advanced 0 is the top of the Avail Advanced line using Shimano’s cutting-edge Ultegra Di2 components. Giant produces the Avail series with a women’s specific fit for better comfort during long days in the saddle. A taller head tube helps produce a better riding posture, while the Avail’s slightly different frame geometry favors a women’s proportions. Giant’s PowerCore bottom bracket produces a solid anchor for the press-fit Shimano bottom bracket, ensuring that power-robbing flex is a thing of the past. The carbon fork’s OverDrive 2 tapered steerer gives the bike a confident feel in hard cornering and fast descents. Giant’s Advanced-grade composite carbon fiber is found throughout the frame and all-carbon fork, producing a smooth ride quality while keeping weight low and strength high.
Shimano’s 10-speed Ultegra Di2 components are found throughout the bike, and the game-changing aspect of the group are the servo-powered derailleurs. Operation is easy to anyone familiar to Shimano’s STI levers, with the buttons in the same familiar location on the brake levers. Minimal effort is needed, ensuring that a tired rider won’t fumble a shift at a critical moment. Hard efforts don’t stall shifting, even when sprinting uphill at full charge. The Di2 system will ensure every shift is perfect. Every. Single. Time. The 50/34T Ultegra compact crankset works in conjunction with an 11-28T Ultegra cassette for a wide and useful gearing range to tackle the steepest hills and fastest descents. Giant’s P-SL0 alloy wheelset has an aerodynamic rim shape and DT Swiss stainless steel spokes for easy speed and a long service life, and are wrapped with 23mm kevlar tires for a smooth ride quality and puncture resistance. The Vector Composite seatpost is topped with a Fizik Vesta saddle for light weight and comfort, while Giant’s Contact handlebars and OverDrive 2 stem produce confident control at speed.
