Female-specific bicycles are becoming a major point of focus for both mainstream and boutique manufacturers. The days of uncomfortable saddles and awkward dimensions are shifting further into the past as this area of the market expands and women become more and more enthusiastic about cycling.
One of the most intriguing aspects of women's bicycles is that, at first glance, they look very similar to the men's equivalents. This, however, is far from the truth. Have the staff at Ride place the two bikes side-by-side, and some crucial things become apparent: women's bicycles accommodate their specific proportions, such as longer legs and shorter arms. The handlebar positions are more relaxed, and often allow for more adjustment and fine tuning. The saddles are female-specific and contoured perfectly to ensure maximum comfort. To see what we mean, take a test Ride and create a direct comparison.
The perfect bike can also be accompanied by some innovative clothing and safety wear, specifically for women, and designed to further compliment the whole package.
