A first for cycle hire in Mallorca we are proud to be one of the only hire centres to offer Female specific models. We’ve listened to our customers and appreciate its often difficult to get a perfect position on a “standard” bike, particularly if your a smaller rider. For this reason we are using the award winning 2018 female specific Cannondale Synapse Ultegra Disc.
The main differences you’ll find on these models are:
Handlebar size is related to shoulder width and since women tend to have narrower shoulders than men, our women’s specific bikes have narrower handlebars set up with a shorter reach to help give better comfort and control for smaller hands.
All our Ladies bikes come fitted with a women’s specific saddle. These saddles are designed to more comfortably support the female anatomy. These ladies saddles can be fitted to any of our bikes, but as saddles are such a personal thing we always recommend customers bring their own saddles with them and our staff will fit them to your hire bike free of charge.
You’ve also told us that hydraulic disc brakes gave you a lot more confidence on descents. Disc brakes are more powerful but require less pressure to apply them, this means they give controlled braking on long descents without needing a lot of pressure to control, which is a lot more comfortable.
