Jamis Quest Comp Femme

With a frame build of Reynolds 520 chro­moly tub­ing and with a car­bon-com­pos­ite fork, the Jamis Quest Comp Femme ticks both the boxes of be­ing ec­stat­i­cally pleas­ing and func­tional. Jamis' size-spe­cific frame de­sign keeps all sizes within the same line per­form­ing prop­erly, and the Femme fit is de­signed for women who need a slightly shorter reach. The bike is out­fit­ted with the new Shi­mano Sora R3000 group and Alex AT 470 tube­less-ready wheels, and has a SRP of $1,410.

Opus Al­le­gro 2 Women's

The Al­le­gro 2 Women's is an En­durance bike with a stylish, re­fined de­sign. The full-car­bon frame and fork in­clude 12-mm thru axles to com­ple­ment the bike's disc brakes. The women's ge­om­e­try in­cludes a lower step-through and shorter reach, and is equipped with a shorter, nar­rower cock­pit and women's-spe­cific sad­dle. An 11-speed Shi­mano 105 gruppo, Shi­mano RS-505 flat-mount hy­draulic-disc brakes and Alex CXD-6 wheels com­plete the build. The SRP is $2,999.

Ar­gon 18 Radon 105

The Radon is aimed at those look­ing for a per­fect com­pan­ion for anything from ad­ven­tures to ca­sual rides. The Radon shares the Kryp­ton ge­om­e­try, and uses Ar­gon 18's 3D head­tube sys­tem. Car­bon seat­stays and fork are paired with an al­loy main tri­an­gle and has clear­ance for up to 32mm tires. The build con­sists of a mixed 11-speed Shi­mano 105 group with FSA Omega crank, Tek­tro R540 brakes and Shi­mano RS010 wheels. The Radon 105 has an SRP of $1,929.
