Description

Skye SL Women's is a quality introductory women's cross country mountain bike with front suspension, a frame and parts designed specifically for women, 24 speeds, and a wide range of gearing that's great for terrain that varies in elevation. It's built in Trek's trail heritage, but also equipped with details like mounts for a rack, kickstand, and fenders that make it a great choice for daily commuters.

It's right for you if...

You're testing the waters of off-road riding, and want a real mountain bike at a great value with a wide range of gears to cover more ground on the road and trail. You also side with women who prefer the fit and feel of a bike made specifically for them.

The tech you get:

Skye SL Women's is equipped with a frame and touchpoints—like the saddle, bars, and grips—that can provide a better fit to women from the start. It has 24 speeds and a wide range of gearing, hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes, and a Women's Rider Right suspension fork tuned for lighter riders with 100mm of travel and a lockout feature.

The final word:

The top-of-the-line model in the Skye Women's has performance features like suspension lockout, stronger double-walled rims, hydraulic disc brakes, and a frame and touchpoints designed for women. It's also equipped with rack and fender mounts and a wider range of gears. These design details make it a great choice if your mountain bike doubles as your commuter.
