The Myka is built upon a premium aluminum frame and is the perfect bike for women looking to hone their skills on a value-packed hardtail. Available in both 26-inch and 29er wheel size options and equipped with a tunable suspension fork and reliable disc brakes, the Myka features a low standover height so riders of all sizes will enjoy confident handling and a comfortable fit. Whether the next adventure is a singletrack trail, bike path or fire road, the Myka has a durable build that’s engineered for fun.
WHAT Women’s Body Geometry Riva saddle and women's Myka grips, plus size-specific cranks.
WHY To ensure that female riders get the most comfort, best fit, and efficiency out of every contact point.
HOW We take a systems approach to design, spec’ing each bike individually based on frame size and geometry. Everything from grips to crank arm length are adjusted to riders on each frame size.
WHAT Alloy forks with custom-tuned, size-specific spring weights.
WHY Creates a more capable, confidence-inspiring ride by delivering the right amount of plushness for the specific rider and helping women utilize all the travel in their fork.
HOW Through extensive field testing, we determine perfect spring weights for female riders. Added features like lockout and hydraulic damping help smooth out bumps and provide more efficiency on smooth terrain.
WOMEN'S A1 PREMIUM ALUMINUM FRAME
WHAT Lightweight and durable A1 Premium Aluminum frame in dedicated 26-inch and 29-inch models with Women’s Recreational XC Geometry and smaller diameter tubesets. Available in double diamond and step-through versions.
WHY Low standover, lightweight maneuverability, and women’s fit give female riders more confidence on the trail so they can achieve all their biking goals. The step-through model adds extra confidence for newer riders.
HOW We optimize the Myka’s geometry and tubesets based on anthropometric data (measures physical variations among women) and the specific needs of the rider to create the best recreational hardtail for women.
ENGINEERING THE BEST-FITTING AND MOST CAPABLE 29ERS FOR WOMEN
WHAT Low standover height is the key to getting on and off the bike with total control. Despite the bigger wheels, we reached our aggressive target of keeping standover height under 695mm for our smallest bike (size 15” is 694mm), and proportionally low for all others, of course.
WHY By using an integrated headset, new flat handlebar, and 80mm-travel fork with female-tuned and size-specific spring rates (accounts for variation in rider weight), we created a low stack height that won’t overwhelm the female rider.
HOW We achieved the shortest possible reach on our 15” bike (378mm), ensuring that every woman, no matter her size, can comfortably reach the handlebars and control the bike.
