In pursuit of adventure, fitness, or just the perfect group ride, these discerning trail riders want a versatile and capable bike that performs confidently on everything from flowy singletrack to technical descents. Since they want to experience anything the mountain can dish out, these women value the bike’s dialled geometry, light weight, and custom-tuned suspension.

Bike and suspension designed in tandem from the ground up, plus custom-tune spring rates for women.

Delivers a more capable and confidence inspiring bike by keeping the ride quality plush and tuning spring curves so women can utilize all of their suspension travel.

By designing the bike and suspension in tandem, we can achieve completely balanced performance that’s appropriate to the bike and rider. Extensive field testing and research on women’s centre of gravity and weight distribution helps us determine the optimal spring rates for female riders.

Women’s Body Geometry Ariel saddle, Women’s Enduro grip and size-specific contact point components all around.

To ensure that female riders get the most comfort and best fit at 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 is optimised for each bike size.

M5 alloy frame featuring women’s XC Trail geometry/tube sets, 120mm travel, tapered head tube with 1.5” lower bearing, ultra-low standover height, and full water bottle clearance on all sizes.

To provide the most capable, best fitting, and most versatile women’s full-suspension bike.

Designing the bike from the ground up with a two-piece top tube and shock carriage enables us to create in-line suspension and reach our lofty design targets in terms of standover, kinematics, and bottle clearance.

The most successful high performance suspension system, continually refined since 1993.

Delivers unsurpassed comfort, control, and efficiency—less effort on climbs, more traction on the descent.

Strategic pivot points decouple suspension from drivetrain and braking forces to eliminate bob and squat, creating a fully active, fully independent system.
