The Liv Langma is race-ready and pro-level, for a price

This queen of the mountains is one of our Headline Bikes for 2018

The Liv Langma is one of our Headline Bikes of 2018

The Liv Langma was developed for Team Sunweb's pro women's road team and designed to climb and sprint well. With premium parts and a race-ready build, it's one of BikeRadar's Headline Bikes of 2018.

Liv calls this bike its "queen of the mountains," and although it's certainly designed to do well at climbing, sprinting and all-round racing is also part of its DNA.

As with all Liv bikes, the Langma features a geometry that's designed specifically for female riders, though the frame itself is constructed using brother-brand Giant's carbon manufacturing expertise.

We took the Langma out to Peille in the South of France to put it through its paces on some of the iconic climbs for which it's been designed.

Stand by for the full review, coming soon. In the meantime, you can read our first ride impressions from the launch event in Italy.
