As the lightest women’s specific mountain bike in the Cannondale line up, the F-Si is ideal for female riders wanting a superlight and super fast mountain bike for cross-country racing on. Compared to the full suspension Scalpel Si, the F-Si is both lighter and more responsive, making it a more efficient weapon for hammering around on smoother trails and up long lung-busting climbs. Without rear suspension, the F-Si is admittedly a rougher ride when compared to a full suspension mountain bike, which is more noticeable on rougher trails that feature lots of rocks and roots. With that in mind, it may not be the right choice if you’re just after a bike for social riding or you need something for tackling more technical and steeper trails. But if you love going fast and you’re starting to take your racing to the next level, then the F-Si may just be the podium contender you’ve been looking for.

Just like the unisex F-Si, the F-Si Women’s features a new frame that has highlights the significant evolution of hardtail mountain bikes over the past few decades. The latest F-Si Women’s model is built around 27.5” diameter wheels, as oppose to the bigger 29” wheels used on the unisex version. This means Cannondale can offer the F-Si Women’s in frame sizes down to an X-Small size to better suit shorter female riders. Other changes include a move to a female specific saddle, narrower handlebars, and a shorter reach to the grips that offers a more upright riding position that places less strain on your shoulders and back. A lightweight suspension fork up front offers 100mm of travel and uses an air spring that can easily be adjusted for different rider weights by using a simple shock pump. Combined with the grippy off-road tyres and hydraulic disc brakes, the F-Si Women’s is a highly capable hardtail mountain bike that is lightweight, fast and easy to ride.
