Developed in collaboration with female pro riders, this sleek frame is an excellent gateway option for women looking to get serious about their riding. Effortless climbs, punchy performance, and fast sprints are all part of this ride's triple-butted, hydroformed aluminum package, further complemented by sharp-edged tube shapes for heightened stiffness and increased impact resistance. A slightly curved top tube lowers the stand-over height and shortens up the reach to better fit female proportions. Flat-sectioned seatstays and asymmetric chainstays absorb road buzz, increasing the length of time you enjoy being in the saddle for your Sunday long ride. A fast and nimble ride, at an accessible price point.
- Fenix 7005 aluminum frame is made out of triple butted hydroformed 7000 series T6 aluminum to keep strength high, costs reasonable, and weight low.
- Flat-sectioned seatstays add comfort to the rigid frame, dissipating and absorbing road vibrations before they get to your body.
- Diamond tube-shaping has proven strength with high impact resistance, making a very strong, very stiff head, top, and down tube.
- Oversized, tapered head tube increases front end stiffness and steering precision.
