When it comes to shooting down a twisty ribbon of singletrack, it's tough to beat the 650b wheel size found here on the Rumor FSR Expert 650b. Supple suspension travel, a top quality component selection, and obsessive attention to detail—the Rumor has it. What really sets it apart, however, is the attention that went into making it the perfect women's trail bike. To start, every component of the bike, from the handlebars to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size. And just as importantly, when paired with the 650b wheel size, its Women's Trail 650b Geometry creates a roomy, responsive, nimble, and confidence inspiring ride quality with a low standover.
- Illustrious Shimano XT levers and calipers handle braking duties to ensure dependable stopping power 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 Factory CTD (Climb, Trail, Descend) Rear Shock that's received our own Women's Rx Trail Tune, providing a lighter tune for female riders who love to get rowdy.
