You'll find the same attention to detail in the Access frame as you would in, say, one of our top-of-the-range race bikes. That matters because it means you can trust your bike to perform to the same exacting standards of comfort, control, durability and safety. Built around our Compact Agile Ride Geometry, the Access frame is designed to offer the best possible fit for day-long ride comfort, as well as confidence-inspiring handling. A slightly lowered top tube improves confidence by adding extra standover clearance, whilst the down tube provides the strong, rigid backbone that's essential for a stable ride and accurate steering. Mudguard and rack mounting points are tucked away out of sight, and cables run internally to keep them out of the way of the elements and to reduce maintenance. And, of course, it's met and exceeded the exceptionally high standards we set in our own in-house torture-testing lab – so you can rest assured that it'll be a reliable, safe companion for years to come.
You might guess from the Access WS Race's name that it's got speed in its genes – and you'd be right. But you don't need to go racing to get the benefit from its lightweight frame, intuitive handling or smooth, reliable components. It's a bike that's designed for any woman with an adventurous streak, an urge to push her boundaries or to go in search of new personal goals. With the benefit of our Size Split system – so any rider can find her perfect fit – and a design team dedicated to ensuring the best possible handling, comfort and safety, it's the perfect tool to help you discover new trails to explore. The Suntour air suspension fork features easy setup, low weight and smooth, bump-smoothing performance that improves both comfort and control. The frame uses proprietary technologies like mechanically formed tubes and Compact Agile Ride Geometry to deliver the ideal blend of reassuring stability and inspirational control. And the wide-ranging, smooth-shifting Shimano 2x10 gears put the right gear for any trail literally at your fingertips. Combined with powerful hydraulic disc brakes and light, grippy Schwalbe tyres, it's the perfect setup to keep you in charge, no matter what the conditions. Comfort, control and a whole heap of fun: who said a woman can't have it all?
