2018 Women's Chisel Comp

If you're thinking about taking the plunge into XC racing, do it with the Women's Chisel Comp. It embodies all of the qualities you'd expect from an XC race bike, like light overall weight, and incredible stiffness that's sure to bring obtainable performance to the masses.

Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D'Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you? You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you questioning why alloy has gotten such a bad rap.

And to further improve this feel, the Chisel also features our XC 29 geometry which took our previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked out front end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider fit range. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency.

The build on this Chisel features a mix of reliable Shimano components, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and 25-millimeter-wide alloy wheels that are optimized for weight and traction. Even better, almost every component has been tailored specifically for women, from the handlebar width to the crankarm length all the way to our superlative Myth Sport saddle.
