Introducing the Escape WSD: an all-round Mountain Bike specifically designed for Women.The Escape WSD is the first of our new generation of Women Specific Design (WSD) Mountain Bikes and is the perfect fit for female riders looking for a versatile off-road performer suitable for a wide range of terrain including forest trails, river paths, fire roads and singletrack riding.
Most Mountain Bikes are designed with a male rider in mind, yet the average female body has very different proportions which affect how a bike fits and feels. WSD is an approach to building bikes that starts from the ground up to better suit a female rider - from frame geometry to all the touchpoints, everything is reconsidered to better suit a female rider.
Women specific features of the Escape WSD:
- WSD Geometry – we’ve designed a more compact frame and fitted a shorter stem that better suits average female proportions and centre of mass. WSD Touchpoints – we’ve fitted narrower handlebars to better suit female shoulder width, and a wider saddle to suit female sit-bones. Plus we’ve reduced the length of the crank arm to suit shorter riders.
- This all adds up to a better fit and feel, meaning you can better step up to some serious off-road adventures on a feature packed bike: Lightweight Hydroformed Alloy Frame featuring compact geometry with a lower step-through style top tube and a shorter stem to better suit female riders. Suntour XCT 100mm travel suspension fork with preload adjustment to ease the bumps and improve control on the trail.
- Popular 27.5” wheel size with Kenda Kadre 27.5 x 2.1” tyres for sure off-road control. Easy to use mechanical disc brakes (160mm rotors) for controlled braking and stopping power in all conditions. Lightweight and strong Alex MD17 Double wall alloy rims with stainless steel spokes and brass nipples to handle the toughest conditions and never rust. Shimano Altus 24-speed gearing to handle mixed terrain and eat up those hills.
Every Reid bike is tested and certified for safety by SAI Global to meet the ‘5 tick’ certification and exceed Australian Safety standards – a promise no other Australian bike brand can match.

Reid Cycles ships bikes, parts and accessories anywhere in Australia!
Free shipping of bikes is available to most metropolitan and some regional areas. We also combined shipping wherever possible to keep the price down. Once you have one or more items in your cart, view your cart, pop your postcode in and we'll give you the combined shipping price. We are currently unable to ship to overseas addresses, please contact our customer services team to enquire about distributors in your area.
We aim to keep the price as low as possible by shipping smaller items for free if they can be shipped with larger items. Helmets, shoes and parts most often ship for free with your new bike!
Remember that bikes are shipped boxed, and 85% assembled. The final assembly required includes the installation of the handlebars, front wheel, pedals and saddle, adjusting the brakes and tuning the gears. We recommend that the assembly is done by a qualified bike mechanic or other suitably qualified person. Damage caused by incorrect assembly (such as installing the pedals the wrong way around) is not covered by your warranty.
Orders for items that are currently in stock are usually despatched within 1 to 2 working days. You'll receive an email with tracking information once the order has been despatched. Certain periods of the year are seasonably busy, with much higher volumes than normal. At these times, we still aim to despatch within 1 to 2 days, but deliveries may take a little longer due to our couriers' workload.
It's always best to send to an address that always has someone in attendance, such as a business address. You may also want to give our courier an 'authority to leave' instruction, which is an instruction to say that there is a safe place leave to delivery, even if there is no one there to take delivery. Only give us an 'authority to leave' if you're confident that the delivery will be safe. Otherwise, the courier can leave a 'sorry we missed you' card, allowing you to arrange redelivery.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
