For discerning trail riders motivated to see what the whole mountain has to offer, the Safire hits the sweet spot on everything from steep climbs to flowy singletrack to technical descents. Specifically tuned for women, the Safire is light on weight but loaded with technology, nimble yet stable, efficient but burly, and ready for virtually any trail.
WHAT Bike and suspension designed in tandem,
with custom-tuned spring rates for women.
WHY Delivers a more capable and confidenceinspiring
ride by keeping the ride quality
plush and tuning spring curves so women
can utilize all of their suspension travel.
HOW By designing the bike and suspension
in tandem, we can achieve completely
balanced performance that’s appropriate
to the bike and rider. Extensive field testing
and research on women’s center of gravity
and weight distribution helps us determine
the optimal spring rates for female riders.
WHAT The most successful high
performance suspension system,
continually refined since 1993.
WHY Delivers unsurpassed comfort, control,
and efficiency—less effort on climbs,
more traction on the descent.
HOW Strategic pivot points decouple suspension
from drivetrain and braking forces to
eliminate bob and squat, creating a fully
active, fully independent system.
Women’s M5 Alloy Frame
WHAT All-new M5 alloy frame featuring women’s
XC Trail geometry/tube sets, 120mm
travel, tapered head tube with 1.5” lower
bearing, ultra-low standover height, and
full water bottle clearance on all sizes.
WHY To provide the most capable,
best fitting, and most versatile
women’s full-suspension bike.
HOW Designing the bike from the ground up with
a three-piece top tube and shock carriage
enables us to create in-line suspension
and reach our lofty design targets in
terms of standover, kinematics, and
WHAT Women’s Body Geometry Ariel
saddle and size-specific grips, rotors,
crank lengths, and handlebars.
WHY To ensure that female riders get the most
comfort and best fit at every contact point.
HOW We take a systems approach to design,
spec’ing each bike individually based
on frame size and geometry. Everything
from small diameter grips to size-specific
rotors, crank lengths, and handlebar
geos is optimized for each bike size.
