Rhyme FSR Expert Carbon 650b

The all-new Rhyme FSR Expert Carbon 650b is built to support women who go hard on the trail and need a no-holds-barred bike to do it on. To do so, it features our proprietary shock tune for women, Women's Rx Tune, that's tailored to give women the best suspension performance possible. Of course, there's also SRAM's workhorse one-by groupset, X1, and Shimano's dependable XT hydraulic disc brakes to round out a build that places an equal focus on durability and efficiency. At the frame, you'll find our FACT 9m carbon fibre that creates a lightweight, strong, and stiff construction. The carbon moulding process also allowed us to revolutionize how you carry your trail essentials with the all-new SWAT Door found at the down tube. This compartment will fit a tube, a tool, and pump without rattling or compromising the structural integrity of the frame. Factor in our nimble 650b Trail Geometry, size-specific components, and our pressure-relieving Body Geometry Myth saddle, and you truly do get a bike that refuses to compromise.
