The benefits of women’s bicycles and how they differ from men’s

I’m not sure if you know this, but I was a professional cyclist for nearly 20 years. The first 10 of those were as an amateur and the second 10 as a pro.

So in my opinion, I am uniquely qualified to tell you about how women’s bicycles are different from men’s bikes. In fact, it might surprise you to learn that there are actually many reasons why women should choose a bike designed specifically for them over one designed for men.

Women cyclists typically have shorter inseams and their bodies are proportionally more slender than male cyclists; therefore these bikes fit better, provide more power and accommodate for the different shapes of the female pelvis without compromising comfort or safety.

If you’re shopping around for a new bike, see if you can find a store that carries both women’s and men’s bikes. If so, get on the two types of bicycles and feel around for differences yourself.

You’ll quickly feel the size difference in the handlebars and how they relate to your body. You will most likely notice many other subtle design differences between the two types of bikes.

Here are some other advantages that female cyclists often cite for bicycles designed specifically for them:

Reach to the handlebars isn’t as much of an issue because women are typically shorter than men The reach is even more equalized due to the same proportionally higher upper body strength that women have compared to men (mainly due to smaller shoulder width and a proportionally stronger upper body) This is why women are less prone to suffer from a muscle strain in the back, neck, and shoulders when cycling than men.

The seat height difference between men’s bikes vs. women’s bikes is almost non-existent Can avoid overheating easier. Women are more susceptible to heat sensitivity while exercising. This means they are more prone to overheating and may have greater difficulty dealing with the stress of exercise than their male counterparts.

Men’s bikes typically have a flat handlebar in front of you, while women’s bikes often use a more gradual slope that allows for easier movement not only up and down the bike, but also side to side.

The seat on women’s bikes is usually narrower than the typical men’s seat, making it more comfortable for a woman sitting and pedaling. This can be especially helpful if you have muscular legs. Women typically have stronger upper legs and thighs to their lower muscles (hamstrings/thighs).

Women’s bike seats are typically more comfortable for women with strong leg muscles because they allow you to sit in a position that doesn’t exaggerate the uneven muscle-to-muscle ratio.

The seat is designed specifically for women and where their pelvis is located on their body, so it does not cut off the blood supply that could lead to numbness.

The handlebars are designed so that your hands do not slip off easily, even when wet and/or sweaty.

Like I said before if you’re able to find a bike shop that carries both women’s and men’s bikes, try the 2 out for yourself! It will be worth your time, I promise.

Now that you are educated about the benefits of women’s bikes, go and find yourself a bike shop near you that carries them so you can get out there and start enjoying the sport!

As I was searching for a bike that would be right for me, I discovered there are many more differences in women’s bikes than just the color. If you can find a bike shop that carries both types of bicycles, ask them to let you try each one out.

A woman will typically have proportionally wider hips and narrower shoulders than a man

Women typically have proportionally wider hips and narrower shoulders than men, which is why women’s bikes are also usually more curved so they contour to the female body.

When shopping for a bike, make sure it fits you properly before buying it! You shouldn’t be straining your back or bending over uncomfortably.

For women, in particular, your bike should fit your body. If you’re short or have smaller legs, check out these models that are designed specifically for women. They will give you more power and control while still feeling comfortable to ride on.

Women’s bikes are designed with the female cyclist in mind. They offer more power and control while feeling comfortable to ride on, thanks to features like narrower seats, shorter handlebars, and curved frames that contour to the shape of a woman’s body.

If you’re shopping for your first bike or looking for an upgrade, make sure it fits properly before buying one!

You’ll be glad you did when you start enjoying your new purchase rather than regretting it.
