Marin Wildcat 5 Women's 27.5" Mountain Bike - 2017
$899.99 MSRP $989.99
Marin County may be justifiably known as the birthplace of mountain biking, and the Marin Wildcat 7.5 with Women's Fit Geometry may be justifiably known as the your best bike ever.
The WildCat features a geometry that enhances ride feel by changing body positioning with an emphasis on women's specific touch points at the grips, handlebar and saddle. This, along with a slightly shorter cockpit, fits the majority of women riders more comfortably. The result is a bike that will fit you better, which means superior handling, less fatigue, and best of all, more confidence to tackle more challenging--and fun--terrain.
The Wildcat 7.5 starts with a lightweight and strong 6061 aluminum alloy frame, perched on a RockShox 30 Silver fork with custom tuned springs for each size of bike, giving you 100 mm of travel. This means less head bobbing and more forward speed. The Shimano Deore 1x10 drivetrain is legendary for fast, reliable shifting and with 20 speeds to choose from, you won't run out of gears, whether you're ascending a hill or bombing down into a valley. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes will stop you on those steep descents, or slow you down just enough for that steep banked turn.
Finally, 27.5" wheels strike the perfect balance between roll-over prowess and maneuverability, and Schwalbe Rapid Rob tires hug the trail while still rolling fast and true. A women's saddle will keep your legs and hips fresh on longer rides and the smaller cockpit and handlebars ensure that your shoulders and arms are perfectly positioned. Put it all together and you've got a mountain bike that will stand up to anything you put in front of it while keeping the focus where it counts--on you.
