Women’s Mountain Bikes

Specialized, Giant, LIV and Van Dessel 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.
