The Silque S and SL are two of our most popular bikes for female riders, and Trek has invested quite a bit of time and effort to create a line of bikes, built from the ground up for women riders. This is more than a saddle and paint change. Silque bikes boast a custom geometry, carbon layup and build kit for the unique needs of female cyclists.
Borrowing the innovative IsoSpeed Decoupler from the Domane line, Silque bikes are able to provide more vertical compliance while maintaining lateral stiffness. This is a crucial piece of tech for women riders.
Even the nicest carbon bikes generally have rider weight limits in the low 200 lb. range. A female rider weighing 140 lbs. simply won't have the mass to flex the frame, and the resulting ride will be uncomfortably stiff. Pair this with Trek's size specific carbon layup and you can see the lengths Trek has gone to produce one of the best riding bikes on the market.
