When looking at road bikes for women there are plenty of options to choose from. Hybrid bikes, in the past have not looked different to mens, however this has changed over time.
Most women would experience significant discomfort trying to ride a bike built for men and there are good reasons for this. The saddle of a mens bike is just not appropriate for a woman.
Hybrid road bikes have a saddle shaped specifically to provide support for women and even the frame angle is designed with a Hybrid shape in mind.
It has taken manufactures a long time buy finally they have built bikes that recognise the different body positioning between men and women. Although there is still a larger range of bikes for men, hybrid bikes still offer a good choice.
In fact, hybrid road bikes are so specifically designed for women, that they are 100% better than mens road bikes. Men on average are taller than women and this has lead to shorter top bar on Hybrid bikes.
If you have ever wondered why some Hybrid bikes have a angled top bar, its because it allows them to still ride a bike while wearing a skirt. When it comes to riding a hybrid bike it would be unusual these days for a female athelete to ride in a skirt. As a result, Hybrid bikes continue to change as fashon changes too.
Fantastic color choices allow a bit of style to creep into the decision of which bike to buy.
When purchasing a Hybrid road bike make sure its specifically designed for women and you will enjoy your bike for years to come.
