HOW DO WOMEN'S HYBRID BIKES DIFFER FROM MEN'S?
The top tube of a women’s hybrid bike may differ by a centimetre or 2, but in general it tends to be a difference in some key component areas, the handlebars may be narrower, with the stem and cranks being shorter and of course a women’s specific saddle. This caters to the general trend that female riders are usually smaller than their male counterparts. We like to think of all riders as being individuals and our priority is in making sure that the bike is right for your body shape, size and positional preference. Therefore, we classify all our bikes as being unisex, we offer you a comprehensive choice of components to ensure that the bike is dialled-in just for you… male, female, old or young.
WHAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF WOMEN'S HYBRID BIKES ARE THERE?
There are 4 types of women's hybrid bike, including the hybrid electric bike, step-through hybrid bike, urban hybrid and hybrid commuter bike.
The women’s hybrid electric bike provides an extra boost of assistance to each pedal stroke up to a set speed at which point it will disengage. This is to remain within limits laid down by government law regarding motorised vehicles. The step-through model features a dramatically sloping top tube that allows riders wearing a long skirt to ride the bike. A women’s urban hybrid has fixed or singlespeed gears and is popular with cycle couriers and commuters who prefer the dependable mix of low maintenance components. A women’s hybrid commuter bike will have derailleurs for shifting across a range of gears and compatibility with mudguards for improved all-weather protection and a pannier rack for carrying luggage.
