Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Liv Langma has been elevated in my opinion drastically since its 2022 overhaul. In its current guise, I’d quite confidently title this the best all-rounder available for women who want a fast, but still compliant, ride. I might have opted for a deeper wheel and a narrower cassette, but those are all based on personal preference - and changes you can make down the line if you agree with me.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Absolutely exceptional ride

  • +

    Lighter than the competition at this price

  • +

    Cable routing that’s easier to work with

  • +

    Addition of crank-based power meter

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Gearing spread quite wide

  • -

    Would opt for deeper wheels

The Liv Langma is the chassis of choice for the brand’s WorldTour team, Liv racing. It’s said to be entirely independent of the TCR, which comes from Liv’s sibling brand Giant. However, the two frames share a great many similarities, not least, that they’ve both had gold standard reviews from Cycling Weekly.

The Langma sets its sights on low weight, a blend of stiffness and compliance to suit riders who want to race, with a pinch of aero optimisation - but not so much that it impacts ride quality. Coming from Giant, which has the benefit of producing both its carbon and moulds in house, it also represents better value than competitors.
