Full-suspension mountain bikes make every trail feel new and more fun! Riding through sections that used to be scary will now put a smile on your face! Giant's Liv division has produced the Lust series for better control and a better fit for a wider range of female riders.
The Lust features a more upright fit and shorter reach from saddle to handebar compared to men's mountain bikes in a similar size. Even the standover height is shorter: 25.7" for an Extra-Small! Part of the reason for a better fit are the 27.5" wheels that allow for a more compact frame and fork than 29" wheels. 27.5" wheels are also lighter than 29" wheels, reducing rotating weight and increasing performance for lightly-built riders. Light weight was also the goal when the aluminum frame was being designed. Giant's ALUXX SL-grade aluminum keeps weight low while providing a strong "backbone" for the Lust 2. Keeping the rear wheel attached to the trail is the job of GIant's exclusive Maestro rear suspension. Using two suspension links, Maestro suspension eliminates any feel of rubbery flex when putting power to the pedals, and can react to small bumps and bigger hits with equal aplomb. An air-adjustable Fox Performance rear shock offers 100mm of suspension travel, and can be adjusted to a wider range of rider weights and trail conditions. At the front, Fox's 32 Float Performance suspension fork is also air-adjustable, adds 100mm of travel, and boasts a 15mm thru-axle for a more precise feel in rocky sections. The fork's tapered steerer tube adds to the Lust 2's front-end handling as well.
Shimano's 10-speed Deore shifters, derailleurs and 22/36T crankset all work in concert for lightning-fast operarion and long service life. An 11-36T Shimano cassette boasts a huge gearing range for challenging climbs and sweeping descents. Adjustable-reach Shimano levers operate Shimano M396 hydraulic brakes, providing excellent stopping power and lever feedback. Giant's own 27.5" XC-2 alloy wheels and Schwalbe Racing Ralph 27.5x2.25" tires spin up easily and offer an aggressive footprint for a wide range of trail conditions. A women's Liv Contact saddle sits atop an alloy Connect seatpost, while an alloy Connect XC handlebar completes this trail-ready machine.
