Details

You'll rule the climbs, the descents, and all the rough stuff in between on your Liv Intrigue 2. This trail-loving machine smooths technical terrain with 140mm of Maestro travel and a 120-140mm-travel RockShox fork. Liv's ALUXX SL aluminum frame is durable, efficient and handles confidently in treacherous topography. The geometry is quick, confident, capable and just feels right, no matter which way your wheels are pointing. Whatever your riding style, speed comes easy with Liv 27.5-inch wheels, Schwalbe tires and Liv-branded controls. Plus, the Intrigue's 2 x 10-speed SRAM/Shimano drivetrain keeps pedaling fluid and smooth, while Shimano's disc brakes deliver pure stopping power.

27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.

27.5-Inch (650B) wheel/tire performance.

Efficiency: Increasing the wheel diameter decreases the angle of attack (the angle at which round objects meet square objects). The lower the angle, the easier it is to roll over obstacles and maintain momentum.

Traction: With a larger diameter, the tire's contact patch increases, putting more rubber on the trail. A 27.5-inch (650B) has nearly the same contact patch as a 29er for superb acceleration, braking and cornering.

Weight: The weight of a 27.5 wheel, tire and tube is only 5% more than an identically built 26-inch wheel. Compare this to a 12% increase with a 29-inch wheel. Lighter wheels mean a lighter bike, and better climbing and acceleration.
