Don't get us wrong—cross country mountain bikes are awesome when speed is the name of the game. But when it comes to pointing your bike down the trail, we all benefit from the confidence and handling that only a proper trail bike delivers. If only someone made a bike that got up efficiently and descended like a rabid beast. Well stop longing and start riding, because the Rumor FSR 29 is that bike. The wheel size and ample travel allow you to take hits over bumpy terrain, while strong, no-nonsense components and a wide range of gears will move you up the mountain with ease. Even better, every component of the bike, from the handlebars to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size. And just as importantly, its Women's Trail 29 Geometry creates a roomy, responsive, and confidence inspiring ride quality with a low standover height, while every aspect of the suspension has been scrutinized and custom-tuned for women.
  • 120mm of Active and Independent FSR rear suspension is provided by a custom X-Fusion 02 RL Rear Shock that's received our own Women's Rx Trail Tune, providing a lighter tune for female riders who love to get rowdy.
  • Tektro Gemini hydraulic disc brakes provide powerful braking over rough terrain, while also remaining durable, reliable, and easy to maintain.
  • A M5 aluminum frame checks all of the performance boxes, like internal cable and dropper post routing, light overall weight, and the perfect blend of stiffness and compliance, but it's also built around our Women's 29 Trail Geometry that dramatically reduces standover height, while increasing comfort and confidence over rugged terrain.
