Who says that women don’t like to ride trails hard? Not us. The Sting WLS 120 Pro is a real trail bike that’s been designed around female riders. With a new, even lighter frame for 2016 and cutting edge 3x11 gears you’ll be able to enjoy everything from long rides to fast blasts. And Size Split - 16 and 18 inch frame sizers with 29er wheels and 13.5 and 15 inch with 27.5in wheels - means every rider can find her perfect bike.
This is the next generation of the proven Sting full suspension platform with 120mm of smooth travel, triple butted 7005 Superlite aluminium tubeset and nippy handling thanks to Agile Ride Geometry. We’ve pulled out all the stops to make the Sting even more fun to ride and even more appealing to keen riders, so 2016 sees an entirely new frame design. The lower top tube doesn’t just look good; it also increases the Sting WLS’s manouevrability, adds stiffness and reduces weight. Win, win, win!
The RockShox Recon Silver air suspension fork and Manitou Radium RL Expert air shock with 120mm travel are a great pair, offering optimum performance with easy adjustment for an individual rider’s weight and riding style. The high quality theme continues with Shimano’s new XT transmission - the precise XT Shadow Plus derailleur, triple chainset (22x30x40) and 11-40T cassette can’t be beaten for versatility. Hydraulic Magura MT2 disc brakes give superb braking performance, while comfort and lively handling are ensured by the ergonomic CUBE WLS saddle and female-specific cockpit with Riser Bar and comfortable grips.
Woman Like Series
Our new WLS models come with different wheel sizes for different frame heights. The 14 and 16 frames have 27.5 wheels, the 17,19 and 21 frames are built as 29ers. Depending on body height, every woman gets the perfect riding character and geometry. The models of our Woman Like Series feature a compact frame geometry with shorter top tubes and longer head tubes, giving a riding position that is more upright than on the men?s models. This riding position relieves the pelvis and offers more comfort. The top tubes of the WLS mountain bikes are lowered, making the bike more comfortable and safe to mount and dismount.
Agile Trail Geometry
The Agile Trail Geometry carries over the Agile Ride Geometry?s benefits but with more focus on aggressive trail use. This can be achieved through a more compact frame construction with an even lower top tube and improved standover height. The result is more freedom of movement on the bike for the rider and a lower centre of gravity which guarantees agile handling and more riding fun.
Trail Motion Rocker
The Trail Motion Rocker features optimized leverage ratios for every bike and intended use, giving fast reacting yet stable suspension in every situation. The computer-designed one piece rocker construction gives maximum stiffness for the best suspension performance while still being extremely lightweight.
