Product Info

Starting from its low standover height and 27.5" wheels, the Liv Embolden 1 Complete Mountain Bike has women's specific geometry and parts choices that make it fit your needs. It's quick, playful, and stable, thanks to 120mm of single-pivot FlexPoint suspension and aggressively-treaded tires. Trail-tested and ready for increasingly mischievous maneuvers, the Embolden 1 will take you as far as you'd like.

Product Details


ALUXX Aluminum ConstructionExtremely lightweight framesets featuring high-performance strength-to-weight ratios, predominantly featuring 6011 alloy. A heritage of craftsmanship combined with unmatched manufacturing capabilities gives Giant the unique ability to monitor every step of the aluminum frame-building process. Through Giant's cutting-edge materials science, proprietary forming techniques, and attention to detail, we are constantly advancing aluminum performance to create bikes that are lighter, stronger and stiffer. The difference can be felt in the ride. Every aluminum bike bearing the ALUXX Aluminum Technology label must live up to the highest standards and meet the tightest tolerances of any aluminum frame in the world.

Fit, Form, FunctionLiv’s data-driven approach to building bikes for women. That means matching you with your best bike size and fit, and it means maximizing your strength with women’s-specific frame and suspension tuning, and also by carefully selected components. Transparency is the best approach, so Liv is sharing exactly how they create bikes for women from the ground up and why it works. They know what it takes to design women’s bikes that awaken wild ideas, bring life into focus, and carry you along any cycling journey you can dream up.

FlexPoint Rear SuspensionThis proven "single pivot" design uses the flexing action of the chainstay/seatstay junction to produce a lightweight and durable suspension system with 120mm (4.7") of rear travel.

Internal Cable Routing

RockShox Monarch R ShockThe Monarch is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Its lightweight design not only delivers silky smooth travel, but thanks to the Solo Air spring, it also delivers a spring rate you'd generally only get from a much heavier coil shock. So, you get a durable, fully adjustable shock capable of smoothing out the most aggressive trails, while simultaneously saving you weight for epic cross-country riding. Don't be fooled by its appearance. Like the wolf, its packaging doesn't always reveal what's inside.

Shock AdjustmentsAir Spring Pressure / External Rebound Adjust


RockShox Recon RLRecon has set the benchmark for value-based performance time and time again. With a beefier chassis and stout 32mm Fast Black steel upper tubes, Recon is the best recipe for the perfect off-road success.

Drive Train

SRAM SX EagleDelivering the wide gearing range, chain retention, and all-around simplicity of their Eagle 12 speed to an even wider set of users, SRAM's hit it out of the park with their newest SX groupset. With DUB bottom bracket spacing, a forged alloy crankset, a durable steel chainring, and a steel cage X-Horizon 1x derailleur, the components are all fully compatible with the entire Eagle line.


Shimano Altus Hydraulic Disc BrakesetA dual-piston caliper with a wide contact area, Shimano BR-MT200 brakes give great control over their ample power. With rapid initial pad contact and controllable power modulation, these are confidence-inspiring and durable.


Giant AM 27.5 Rims Laced to Tracker Boost HubsAt 30mm internal width, these sealed-bearing wheels provide a highly durable platform for today's tubeless tires. Stiff, but with a lively trail feel, these are ready for all-mountain adventures.

Maxxis Rekon Front TireThe Rekon is an aggressive trail tire inspired by the Ikon for intermediate and technical terrain. Wide knobs down the middle provide control under braking and L-shaped side knobs assure support when carving loose turns. With confidence like this you can race more and scout less with the Rekon.

Maxxis Ardent Race Rear TireAn aggressive tread in high-volume casing, designed with great traction in mind. The Ardent has large block-style side knobs offering numerous edges for high-speed cornering. The center tread, while ideal for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance.
