2015 Buyer’s Guide: Women’s road gear

All of the best gear female riders need to gear up for the coming season of riding, racing, and more

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.


$3,680, TrekBikes.com

The Trek Silque combines the comfort and stability of an endurance bike without compromising power. Trek’s Women’s Specific Design (WSD) makes for an extremely comfortable ride, and the Silque takes it to the next level with the IsoSpeed decoupler, the same technology found on Trek’s Domane endurance frame. The Silque can be a solid choice for racing as well, as the short head tube offers an aggressive stance for an otherwise relaxed, compliant frame. (Stock wheels not pictured.)


$200, Giro.com
222 grams

It goes without saying that helmets serve an important purpose, and looks should be secondary to safety. But the Giro Aeon doesn’t settle for function — it looks sleek and feels wispy. The 24 vents keep you cool, and despite the low profile, a cap fits comfortably underneath.


$800, StagesCycling.com
22 grams (for Ultegra 6800)

Stages has changed the paradigm for power meters. It’s the lightest power meter on the market and hits just the right price point, making it perfect for those interested in taking their training to the next level.


$24, DZ-Nuts.com

Never underestimate
 the power of chamois 
cream. While it may
be possible to ride in 
comfort without it, we
 prefer not to risk the 
results. DZnuts Bliss is 
women’s-specific and 
even the most sensitive 
skin will benefit from
the silky smooth
 DZnuts formula.


$150, Giro.com
22 grams (for ultegra 6800)

Giro has refined the women’s bib short. The one-piece halter strap allows for removal of the bottom layer without taking a full-zip jersey off; just unzip and pull the halter over the head. This is a huge development in usability, comfort, and, of course, brings an end to “man-envy” when nature calls.
