How is a women’s mountain bike different?
The main difference between men’s and women’s mountain bikes is the fit.
On average, women are shorter than men, which is why women’s MTB models are generally built with shorter distances between the top of the frame and the seat and tend to have shorter reach lengths.
Ladies’ mountain bikes also generally have thinner tubes and lighter frames and a wider saddle for extra comfort.
