The Trek Dual Sport 2 Women's has been designed to balance value for money with versatility. Lock the 63mm of suspension from SR Suntour and you have a ridged and responsive hybrid for the road. When transitioning to a gravel path, or light offroad, a simple motion to unlock the fork allows access to the suspension. This offers riders an opportunity to enjoy a softer, more predictable ride on looser surfaces. The Alpha Gold grade of aluminium is lightweight but robust, so the bike can be lifted on and off of a bike rack, or over a stile with relative ease. And the Shimano drivetrain offers a wide range of gearing for optimal riding uphill or downhill, whilst hydraulic brakes from Tektro ensure that stopping is never an issue.
Versatility is increased further through accessorising.
For commuters, this bike has fixings for mudguards and pannier racks, families can make use of the fixings to add a child seat, and those who wish to spend most time off-road may wish to fit 35c tyres for added grip.
Ready for varied surfaces
Some days, you like to ride roads. Others, you like to ride on gravel and light trails. You want a single rugged hybrid bike that will stand up to your every adventure whim, with touchpoints designed specifically for women and features that keep you comfortable over a variety of terrain.
A lightweight aluminium frame, a suspension fork with a lockout feature, a reliable drive train with 24 speeds and a wide range of gearing so you're never pedalling too hard or too soft, all-terrain tyres that are grippy yet fast-rolling, disc brakes for all-weather stopping power and a saddle designed for women.
The Final Word
Dual Sport 2 Women's is a go-anywhere hybrid bike designed to help you explore more of your world. Tarmac? Gravel? Trails? Yeah, it can handle that. The wide range of gearing, rack and mudguard mounts, front suspension, touchpoints designed for women, and tech capabilities to track fitness only add to its versatility.
