Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Liv Langma Advanced SL Disc is the bike I've chosen to take to the races this season, and that says most of what I need to say. The 2022 build boasts grin-inducing acceleration but is still compliant enough for long days out. A 50mm wheel wouldn't go amiss, but this will be down to personal preference.

Reasons to buy

    Brilliant ride

  • +

    Balance of weight vs aero features

Reasons to avoid

    Race bike could benefit from a 50mm wheel

The Langma is the all-rounder race bike from Liv. Whilst the Taiwanese brand continues to produce the EnviLiv aero bike, it is the disc only Langma that appears at the Women’s World Tour beneath the brand’s sponsored riders. 

With its low weight and more recent aerodynamic uplifts, like the best all-rounders, the Langma aims to excel on the climbs as well as the flat. With a boost to tyre clearance - now at 32mm - the versatility box is ticked, too.
