Liv's first gravel bike was unveiled just two weeks ago, but the praise has already started pouring in. Reviewers from top cycling media outlets like Bicycling and VeloNews got the opportunity to try out the Devote before anyone else. Here’s what they had to say about the long-awaited, adventure-ready and gravel race-capable bike from Liv:
Devote – the all new gravel bike from Liv – has been stirring things up since it was launched in early August. With integrated mounts for racks and fenders, three water bottle cage mounts, clearance for 45c tires, tubeless wheelsystem, and supremely comfortable D-Fuse flare drop handlebars, Devote is ready for anything any road will throw your way. Offered in a lightweight, responsive, women’s specific Advanced-Grade Composite frame and ALUXX-Grade Aluminum models, gravel lovers have the options they crave.
But don’t take our word for it, here’s what the reviewers had to say after their first rides on the Devote:
“While the term ‘confidence-inspiring’ is overused these days, sometimes it’s appropriate. I was taken aback by how much my confidence grew over the course of riding the Devote… Liv’s debut gravel and adventure bike is a veritable steed to load up and pedal out into the wilderness for a well-needed escape, and I guarantee you’ll come back with a smile,” said Mildred Lock of CyclingNews.com (UK).
“The new Devote Advanced Pro is light, efficient gravel-ready race bike that’s comfortable enough to go explore all those dirt roads you’ve always wanted to check out, and fast enough to drop the group on the climb. She’s fast, curious, and ready for adventure, just like the rider she was built for,” said Riley Missel, Bicycling Magazine (US).
