The mission of the Rhyme Comp Carbon 27.5 is pretty simple—give female riders the best performing trail bike out there. And to make sure of it, we gave it our proprietary trail shock tune for women, Women's Rx Tune, that's tailored to give you the best suspension performance possible.
To start, it lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. The big tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs.
It features our FACT 9m carbon fiber for the bulk of the construction in order to provide an ultra-lightweight, strong, and stiff frame. The carbon molding process also allowed us to revolutionize how you carry your trail essentials with the revolutionary 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.
And when you factor in a build spec that has SRAM's 11-speed GX one-by shifting, powerful Guide R hydraulic disc brakes, a RockShox Revelation RC fork with 150mm of travel, and a whole host of women's-specific components, from the saddle to the custom-tuned RockShox Monarch RT shock, you have a bike that will have you never looking back—unless it's to see the girls eating your dust.
- FACT 9m carbon fiber Trail Chassis with Rhyme FSR M5 alloy rear end blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while fully enclosed cable routing and an integrated SWAT™ Door create exceptional handling and zero-hassle storage.
- RockShox Revelation RC fork features a 15x110mm Maxle Ultimate thru-axle, a Solo Air™ spring, and 150mm of plush travel to take on big hits and bumpy terrain with supreme speed and efficiency.
- SRAM's 11-speed GX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
