Whether riding singletrack, doubletrack, or a mellow fire road, Myka riders are often new mountain bikers looking to hit the dirt for the first time or hone their skills on a value-packed hardtail. Using the bike mainly for recreation, they want a fun and confident ride that will help them pursue their next trail adventure.
Lightweight, double butted A1 Premium Aluminium frame in dedicated 26” and 29” models with women’s-specific recreational XC geometry and smaller diameter tubesets.
The frame’s low standover, lightweight manoeuvrability, and women’s-specific fit give female riders more confidence on the trail so they can achieve all their mountain biking goals.
We optimise the Myka’s geometry and tubesets based on anthropometric data (measures physical variations among women) and the specific needs of the rider to create the best recreational hardtail for women.
Alloy forks with women’s-tuned, size-specific spring weights.
Creates a more capable, confidence inspiring ride by delivering the right amount of plushness for the specific rider and helping women utilize all the travel in their fork.
Through extensive field testing, we determine perfect spring weights for female riders. Added features like lockouts and hydraulic damping help smooth out bumps and provide more efficiency on smooth terrain.
Size-specific BG saddles, grips, rotors, cranks, and handlebars.
To ensure that female riders get the most comfort and best fit out of every contact point.
We take a systems approach to design, spec’ing each bike individually based on frame size and geometry. Everything from small diameter grips to size-specific rotors, crank lengths, and handlebar geos is optimised for each bike size.
