KROSS bikes for women
How to choose a bicycle for a woman?
Until recently, the answer to the question of how to choose a bicycle for a woman was extremely difficult. Mainly due to the very limited selection of such bikes. Now all you need to do is find the right type of bike, choose the accessories that match your riding style and you're all set! It is much simpler and there is no need for tedious selection of components that will improve the riding comfort.
Choosing a bicycle for a woman should focus primarily on ensuring that it is equipped with the right components. The handlebar designed for women should be slightly narrower than that of a bicycle for men. The seat on a women's bike is usually slightly wider to provide better support and allow for long rides without fear of rubbing or discomfort. For the most part, women's bikes make it possible to choose the diameter of the wheels they will be equipped with. In recreational MTB bikes, these are wheels with a diameter of 26 to 29 inches, while in the case of high-performance bikes, the most common are 27.5 and 29-inch rims.
Types of women's bicycles
KROSS women's bicycles come in many different types. For the most part, performance bikes, such as the KROSS Level series, are not part of a separate line of women's bikes. The exception is the KROSS Level 6.0 women's version. However, for bikes that are more intended for leisure, there is a clear distinction between men's and women's lines. Thanks to this, you can get on the bike right after you buy it, without the need to look for a women's seat, a handlebar designed for women or a shorter stem that will allow you to take a comfortable position on the bike.
- Recreational MTB bikes - designed for riding on forest paths and in light terrain. It is the perfect choice for people who want to relax in the fresh air and away from the hustle and bustle. They feature mounting holes that make it possible to install mudguards or a rack, which makes them slightly more usable compared to performance bikes.
- Trekking Bikes - designed for women with a slightly different frame structure. Thanks to the lowered standover, it is easier to get on and off these bikes. As the name suggests, they are perfect for cycling trips, but not only that. They will also be ideal for everyday use, which will effectively allow you to give up the car during commuting or for social meetings.
