Trek Skye SL Disc

The Trek Skye SL Disc is a mountain bike designed for women who want to pick an affordable cycle, which is better than the average in its class. It benefits from mechanical disc brakes from Shimano, along with a host of other features that give it a keen ability to head off road and still let you feel confident and in control. Handling and speed are important in this market so whether you are getting serious about competitive cycling or just looking for a fun little weekend racer, this is a bike to put in the running with its rivals.

The aluminium frame is specifically tailored to the needs of the typical female rider. That means it is lightweight but also particularly strong and durable, two key assets of any mountain bike. The eight speed Shimano gears and the disc brakes will let you have fingertip precision when you are altering the bike on the fly and Bontrager has its name all over the other components, from the tyres and rims to the handlebars and grips. By selecting components from two or three respected manufacturers the Trek Skye SL Disc is able to endow the rider with confidence.

The dark red frame of the Trek Skye SL Disc is almost purple in hue and it suggests that this is a feminine bike without going for an all-out pink paint job.
