First launched in 2017 ahead of the Giro Rosa, the Langma is Liv’s race bike designed for race speed and climbing ability, and the original form had enough wins to prove its pedigree including La Course, the Tour of Norway and at Giro Rosa itself. 

For 2021, it’s had some serious upgrades: aero tubing throughout, a frame that’s been re-engineered to be stiffer and lighter, new handlebars and wheels, and disc brakes throughout the range. The changes have been made based on feedback from riders, ambassadors and of course the pro racers of the Liv Racing WorldTour Team, and eagle-eyed race fans may have spotted the new Langma gain its first win of 2021 at Les Samyn Des Dames, piloted by Lotte Kopecky.
