The Pinnacle Willow Two 2012 Women's Mountain Bike gets an upgrade to the SR Suntour 'XCR' fork with 100mm travel and a lockout, plus Shimano 9-speed gearing and Shimano hydraulic brakes. The women's geometry frame (a shorter reach, smaller frame sizing with a lowered top tube and a fractionally lower crank) is matched with a women's saddle and shorter cranks and stem to improve the fit.
Willow is Pinnacle's mountain biking starting point for Women. No 'novice geometry' or 'that'll do' approaches here though, just a focus on what's needed from rider-designers who remember their early days off-road. Pinnacle doesn't believe in entry level or expert frame geometry, we think it's either a good bike or it's not. Willow frames share the same tube design influences as the Jarrah and Iroko to ensure that a good fit is matched to confident handling on any terrain - so as you improve, the bike won't be holding you back. A more laid-back geometry in some ways, a more go-for-it fast and capable in others, it's our way of making sure your first off-road rides are the start of many great experiences and adventures.
