  • Louis Garneau Women's Sonix Sport Bike
  • Sizing
  • ENDURANCE FIT
Developed for serious riders who strive to ride longer and faster. Taller head tube places the rider in a more upright position to reduce muscle fatigue, improve oxygen intake and alleviate tension on lower back and neck. Longer wheelbase adds stability and fluidity for greater control and comfort.
  • CARBON TECHNOLOGY
Seeking to improve comfort, we've engineered a fiber lay-up to maximize compliance by using supple HS high strength carbon fiber longitudinally along the tubes' length, while stiffer IM intermediate modulus fiber placed at an angle keeps the bike laterally stiff for great power transfer and precise handling
  • FULL CARBON FORK
A full carbon fork, including steerer, for weight reduction, increased lateral stiffness and improved comfort.
  • TAPERED HEAD TUBE
The head tube design tapered from 1 1⁄8 to 1 ½, increases lateral rigidity and improves handling precision in and out of the saddle.
  • PRESSFIT BB
Larger bottom bracket for more rigidity and power transfer.
  • COMPACT CRANK
Front chainring with shorter gearing for more versatility between flat terrain and climbing.
  • TOTAL INTEGRATION
Brake and shifter cables are all internal, away from contamination, for crisp shifting and a cleaner look. Removable cable stop inserts allow for seamless Shimano electronic Di2 integration.
  • WOMEN SPECIFIC COMPONENTS
Since women usually have shorter hands, smaller feet, narrower shoulders and wider hips than most men, we have outfitted our women-specific bikes with components that are appropriate for their physiological needs and for the way they ride.

Shifters and brake levers sized for smaller hands to improve function, size-specific crank arms and wide range gearing to tackle even the steepest hills, narrower handlebar with short reach and shallow drops improves handling and comfort, wider saddle that increases support to the ischium, those are just some of the benefits you'll find on our women-specific bikes.
  • WOMEN SPECIFIC FRAMES
At Garneau, we understand that women's bikes are much more than just paint and pretty colors. Women are serious about their sport and they want equipment that won't hold them back. This is why we're taken into account their different physiological characteristics in our design to create bikes that fit better, handle better, feel better and strike the perfect balance between performance and pleasure.
  • WOMEN SPECIFIC GEOMETRY
On average, women have shorter torsos, shorter arms and longer legs than men of similar height; their center of gravity is also lower and further back than men. Taking this into account, we designed our frame with a smaller top tube to improve saddle-to-handlebar distance, a higher head tube to reduce pressure on the neck and shoulders, a slightly steeper seat angle to recenter the center of gravity into the frame, and a shallower head tube angle to minimize toe overlap and to give a confidence-inspired ride.
