When it comes to women’s off-road riding Cube has provided one of the most complete ranges on the high street. Whatever you want to do, there’s a bike here for you.
Cube Access SL WLS Mountain Bike – from £895.00
Access WLS 26 / 27.5 / 29er
The Access WLS range of women’s bikes is built around Cube’s fantastic female-specific aluminium frame design, offering a perfect combination of comfort, stability, stiffness and lightweight. The Access WLS 26 runs on traditional 26in wheels and comes fitted with a Suntour XCT 100mm fork, 24-speed Shimano Altus gears and aluminium V-brakes. The rest of the Access WLS range runs on 27.5 or 29in wheels, depending on frame size. The Access WLS Disc features an improved aluminium frame with some internal cable routing, a Suntour XCT 100mm suspension fork, Shimano Altus gears and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. The Access WLS Pro sports further enhancements to its aluminium frame making it both lighter and stiffer, and comes with Shimano Acera/Altus gears, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a Suntour XCM 100mm suspension fork. The Access WLS Race uses the same great frame but with a Suntour XCR 100mm fork, Shimano SLX Shadow/Deore gears and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. And the range-topping Access WLS SL comes with a tapered head tube and press-fit bottom bracket for ultimate performance, Shimano XT Shadow/SLX gears, enhanced Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a Manitou Marvel TS 100mm suspension fork.
When it comes to ultimate off-trail performance and comfort, for women riders Cube has the Sting WLS range of full suspension machines. These utterly capable mountain bikes will tackle rocks, roots and pretty much anything you’ll come across on the trail. The Sting 120 WLS models comes with a Superlite 7005 aluminium frame — meaning superb stiffness and lightweight — with 120mm of travel front and back, and either 27.5in or 29in wheels depending on size. The Sting WLS 120 Pro is kitted out with a Manitou Marvel TS Air fork and Manitou Radium Expert RL shock, Shimano XT Shadow/Deore gears and Shimano hydraulic discs; while the Sting WLS Race features a RockShox Reba RL fork and Fox Float CTD shock, Shimano XT Shadow/Deore gears and matching Deore hydraulic brakes. However, the flagship women’s off-road model, the Sting WLS 140 SL is available in only a 27.5in wheel version and boasts a whopping 140mm of travel fore and aft. It’s another cutting-edge aluminium frame; with a RockShox Revelation SA RL 140mm fork and Fox Float CTD shock, with Shimano XT Shadow Plus gears and matching XT hydraulic brakes. Truly an awesome machine.
