Improve your ride
Cycling is for the ladies.
Every day we encounter happy female riders. Their bike fits them and builds their confidence. They love riding because they feel safe and in control of their bike.
Sadly, we also meet female riders who aren't happy. The cause is almost always improper equipment. Cycling joy is diminished when making a men's bike fit a woman just doesn't cut it.
What we've found is that comfort and confidence soars when equipment is tailored for the user.
There's much more than just color changes going on here. The better the brand, the more changes they will make to their women's lineup. We would like to show you what differences there are between women's and men's equipment.
The most effective way to make your ride more comfortable and relaxed is to have a proper bike fit. The vast majority of bicycles and equipment out there are not tailored to the female physique.
Women's bikes should fit much different:
- Handlebars are narrower
- Grips are smaller
- Frames are shorter in length yet taller
- Seats are specifically shaped
Specialized goes the extra mile by shortening crankarm length, creating the frames out of thinner (and lighter!) aluminum, softening suspension, and making other subtle changes to frame geometry.
All that technical stuff makes women's bikes lighter, fit better, and handle more naturally.
