It's right for you if...

You appreciate a little extra confidence on the trail. You value traction and stability, and want a lightweight carbon rig that rips it up and keeps the rubber side down. You side with riders who prefer the fit and feel of a bike made for women.

The tech you get

A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a stout FOX fork, and 130mm of rear travel with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv rear shock. Plus, a Bontrager Drop Line dropper post, SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes, a carbon Bontrager handlebar, Women's Specific Design touchpoints, DT Swiss wheels wrapped in mid-fat Schwalbe Nobby Nic Performance 27.5x2.8˝tires, and a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain for incredible gear range.

The final word

Amazing traction and confidence on the trail. A lightweight carbon frame, DT Swiss wheels with grippy mid-fat tires, and a plush suspension setup come together for a trail bike that boosts your confidence and your abilities.

Sizing & fit

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
