The premium alloy XC hardtail.

If you're thinking about taking the plunge into XC racing, do it with the Women's Chisel Comp. It embodies all of the qualities you'd expect from an XC race bike, like light overall weight, incredible stiffness, and women's-specific components that are sure to bring obtainable performance to the masses.

Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D'Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you? You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you questioning why alloy's gotten such a bad rap.

And to further improve this feel, the Chisel also features our XC geometry, which took our previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked out front-end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider range of fit. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency.

The build on this Chisel features a mix of reliable Shimano Deore and XT components, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and 25-millimeter-wide alloy wheels that are optimized for weight and traction. Even better, almost every component has been tailored specifically for women, from the handlebar width, to the crankarm length, all the way to our superlative Myth Sport saddle. 

  • Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with our speed-focused Women's XC 29 Geometry, D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance.
  • Rocks and bumps are soaked up via the RockShox Judy Gold fork with 90/100 millimeters of travel. It features proprietary technology from RockShox, like its Solo Air™ spring that maintains an ideal equilibrium, as well as being one of the lightest air springs on the market. 
  • The Shimano Deore XT rear derailleur is one of the most sought after components in mountain biking. It's remarkably reliable, precise and crisp in its shifting, and is nothing if not durable.
