Women’s Mountain Bikes
Specialized, Giant, LIV and BMC offer a wide variety of mountain bikes with various suspension types, travel distances and other features for different terrain and riding styles. Of course, at a variety of price points. Some women can really benefit from a women-specific design, while for others it is not as crucial. We can set you up for a test ride and discuss your mtb goals.
In 2013 Giant bikes introduced LIV, a totally new line of bikes designed especially for women. Designed from the ground up for women, by women riders, designers and engineers, these are not downsized men’s bikes with different color schemes. They follow the 3F model of Form, Fit and Function taking into account the needs of women mountain bikers. Sourland Cycles has created a special section in the shop for our women’s bikes and we have women cyclists on our staff to assist our female customers.
If you are considering buying a bike online from Giant, or anyone else, we’re glad to help. Have it shipped to us so we can assemble it safely, and professionally. To see the care we take, click here.

Your spirit of adventure knows no bounds, so why should your bike? Our Jynx women’s hardtail mountain bike answers this question without hesitation. It was designed to guide you comfortably and confidently through almost any terrain, whether your ride involves singletrack, fire roads, or your local pavement. To do so, the design started around providing the best possible women’s fit right out of the box, which was made possible by pairing 650b wheels with a low, more accessible standover. And with the perfect fit accomplished, the focus shifted to creating a confidence-inspiring ride quality. First, we included women’s-specific grips, cranks, saddle, and bars to ensure greater comfort. Then we used a fork that’s custom-tuned for women to meet rough trails head-on. Comfort, fit, and confidence—it all adds up to a true women’s mountain bike that’s ready to explore.

The Ruze hardtail trail bike starts with our new 6Fattie wheel system and ends with our revolutionary Diamond Stay design. And when you mix it all with low, slack geometry, you get a bike that climbs like a hardtail and inspires confidence like the best trail bikes we’ve ever made.
Our Wheel System uplifts the Ruze to have more traction and control than any hardtail before it, while its no-nonsense build is custom spec’d to get the job done, no matter how rugged, technical, or hair raising that job might be.
- M4 Premium Aluminum proved to be the right material for the job, allowing for a lightweight, durable frame with a low and slack geometry that’s equal parts snappy and efficient on climbs and descents. It also allowed us to incorporate our exclusive Diamond Stay chainstay that accommodates the wheel/tire combination without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays that provide unrivaled handling and climbing prowess.
- The Manitou Machete fork’s 100/120mm (size-specific) of travel soaks up trail bumps, while its compression and rebound adjust enable you to dial-in the damping to your liking.
- 650bx3.0″ 6Fattie Purgatory and Ground Control tires feature a perfectly sized contact patch for life-changing levels of traction and control while cornering, all without sacrificing climbing efficiency or descending prowess. And with a GRID casing protecting the sidewalls, these tires will stand up to anything the trail can throw at them.
