If weight and agility weren't an issue, anyone could build a bike that rips downhill with the prowess of a moto. In the realm of trail bikes, however, the logic of design is tilted towards, "what goes down must also come up." Along these lines, our Rumor FSR Elite 650b strikes the perfect balance between all-out trail machine and efficient climber, especially given how incredibly agile and responsive this wheel size is. To achieve this, it features durable components that can take a lick and keep on going, plenty of supple suspension, and a SRAM one-by drivetrain that trims weight, keeps plenty of gear range, and is nearly impossible to drop a chain with on descents. In addition to this, 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 650b 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.
  • Shimano SLX calipers and levers serve up near identical braking performance as to what's found up the line at Shimano, like the one-finger ergonomic pull design, only they place an emphasis on creating the perfect blend of power and durability to ensure that you sacrifice nothing to have dependable braking through any condition or terrain.
  • 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 650b Trail Geometry that dramatically reduces standover height, while increasing comfort and confidence over rugged terrain.
  • 125mm of Active and Independent FSR rear suspension is provided by a custom FOX FLOAT CTD (Climb, Trail, Descend) Performance Rear Shock that's received our own Women's Rx Trail Tune, providing a lighter tune for female riders who love to get rowdy.
