The Helix A1 is the woman' equivalent of the Durango A1.
The female specific frame offers a lower top tube for increased standover clearance, a shorter top tube and an easier to maneuver 27.5 inch/650b wheelset.
Well equipped with a Microshift Advent 1x (single chainring) drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and 4 inches of suspension travel up front.
In our judgment this is the least expensive level of mountain bike componentry that you can take off-road and not have it constantly malfunction.
If you want to ride in the woods, not just on a paths or pavement, this is the bike to start with.
