The Pique 3 is Liv's introduction to better-fitting performance mountain bikes. A short standover height -as short at 25.9"- allows the Pique 3 to fit a wider range of riders and rider flexibilities. The top tube is also proportionally shorter in a given size to fit women better. 27.5" wheels add lightness, letting a smaller rider use less energy on challenging trails.
It all starts with Giant/Liv's own ALUXX-SL hydroformed aluminum frame. Combining feather-lightness and impressive torsional strength adds improved pedaling response while providing an effective chassis for the front and rear suspension. Clean welds not only look smooth, but also reduce the Pique 3's weight further. The OverDrive tapered head tube adds an extra dash of precise handling in rocky trails. A press-fit bottom bracket holds the crank steady for flex-free power delivery as well. Keeping the rear tire planted is the job of Maestro, a rear suspension technology that takes its cues from racing car suspension designs. An upper Composite rocker link and alloy lower link let the rear wheel swing more vertically, giving the Pique unrivalled control over roots, rocks and anything else the trails can throw at you! 120mm of travel can take hard landings, washboard surfaces and anything else in between. An air-adjustable Fox Float Performance EVOL shock can be dialed in for a wider range of riders and trail conditions. Up front, an air-adjustable Fox 34 Rhythm suspension fork boasts 120mm of suspension travel as well.
Shimano's proven Deore components are found throughout the Pique 3, including the 10-speed shifters, derailleurs and 22/36T crankset. A Shimano 11-36T rear cassette brings a huge gearing range to the Pique 3 for roller-coaster trails. Helping to keep speed reigned in -even in wet and messy conditions- is the job of Shimano's hydraulic disc brakes.
With 15mm thru-axles and Boost hub spacing, the Pique 3's wheels are as ready as the rest of the bike for adventures in the back country! 28-spoke alloy XC-1 rims are wrapped with 27.5x2.25" Schwalbe tires for easy acceleration and confident grip.
The Pique 3 uses an alloy Connect seatpost, alloy Connect stem, alloy Connect Trail handlebar and Liv Contact saddle to complete this trail-ready machine.
