Ladies, if those "standard" fitting bikes aren't cutting it, check out Marin's "Women's Fit Geometry". Marin has some of the strongest roots in mountain biking and wants everyone to have a bike that fits.

Things like a slightly shorter cockpit to you're not too stretched out while riding and women-specific saddle & grips to increase your comfort round out the Wildcat 1 to provide a more comfortable and enjoyable experience. Topping it off are forged alloy linear pull brakes and the more modern sized 27.5 inch wheels providing a smoother & better handling ride.
