Hybrids like the Dual Sport 2 for women aren't just for rides around the park on Sundays. They're for making meet-ups and meeting goals, on road and off.
The Dual Sport 2 starts with a well-fitting Alpha Gold aluminum frame, keeping the bike light and responsive over hill and dale. The overall fit and geometry works with a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get a comfortable position for fitness rides and commutes to work. Mounting points for racks, fenders and bottle cages add versatility to the Dual Sport 2. There's even an aperture in the left chainstay for an ANT+/Bluetooth speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) to help keep track of ride data on your smartphone. Cool, huh? Up front, a Suntour NEX suspension fork soaks up impacts with 63mm of travel, helping to keep the front wheel when you point it. There's even a lockout knob to give the bike a more "roadie" feel on pavement.
Shimano's 8-speed shifters and derailleurs allow for lightning-quick shifting at your fingertips. A triple crankset and 11-32T cassette offer a huge gearing range for tackling steep climbs and carrying heavy loads. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. Alloy Bontrager wheels are wrapped with semi-treaded 700x40c GR1 Comp tires, bringing confident grip on pavement and gravel surfaces. A women's Bontrager Sport saddle, alloy seatpost, accessory-ready Blendr stem and alloy handlebar round out this go-getting machine.
