Overview

Reviews
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 fiber that creates a lightweight, strong, and stiff construction. The carbon molding 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.
  • The FACT 9m carbon fiber Trail Chassis with a Rhyme FSR M5 alloy rear end blends stiffness with light weight to reach the pinnacle of efficiency, while fully enclosed cable routing and an integrated SWAT Door create exceptional handling and zero-hassle storage. The frame also features our Trail 650b Geometry that adds to confidence, fit, and performance.
  • Roval Traverse 650b rims have an ultra-wide 29mm internal width for more stability and speed when pointed down the trail.
  • Every component and touchpoint of the bike, from the handlebars to saddle to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size.
  • Connected with our FSR 6-Pack Linkage, a custom FOX Float Factory rear shock features AUTOSAG for easy setup and 150mm of plush, adjustable suspension, while our Women's Rx Tune provides a more supple, responsive, and efficient feel for climbing up and descending down the trail.
