You want a ride that's sure-footed, capable and responsive, so you can stay in control wherever you're riding. You prefer the fit and feel of a women's mountain bike, and want dependable parts, versatility and confidence-inspiring 27.5˝ mid-fat wheels at great value. 

The tech you get

A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with a lower standover height on the 14˝ and 15.5˝ frame sizes, a saddle designed specifically for women, narrower bars for a better fit and more control, and 27.5+ tyres for traction on rugged trails. Plus, Boost148/110 hub spacing for added strength and tyre clearance, a durable Shimano 10-speed drivetrain and fully adjustable RockShox air suspension.

Features

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Smaller frames (14˝ and 15.5˝) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (17.5˝ and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
