Men's Cruiser Bike Vs. Women's Bike: | What's the Difference?
We’re not intentionally trying to fuel the age-old battle of the sexes, but not all bikes are created the same—this particularly rings true when comparing men’s cruiser bike and female beach cruiser bikes.

Even though the best cruiser bikes for men slightly differ from ladies cruiser bicycles, both are equally fun and are meant for enjoying the present moment, even when bickering over whose ride is better.

So, what’s the difference?


A Men’s cruiser bike and female beach cruiser bikes, available at Beachbikes, have a 3000 lb maximum, come with 26” wheels, as well as handlebars ranging from 25.5” to 28.5” wide handlebars. An exception to the handlebars size is the beefy FIRMSTRONG Bruiser which comes with 38.5” wide handlebars, as it is meant for taller or larger men. Men’s beach cruisers in general are created to fit taller people than women’s beach cruisers. While some men’s cruiser bikes begin to fit men 5’ tall, most bikes begin with at 5’4” tall fit ,and even a 5’7” tall beginning fit. The fit on best cruiser bikes for men can reach a maximum up to 6’7,” whereas the maximum fit for most women’s cruisers is 6’ or less such as the FIRMSTRONG Bella Classic. In comparison, ladies cruiser bicycles’ beginning fit ranges from 5’0” tall to 5’4” tall, and their maximum fit is 6’ tall.



The most obvious difference between men’s cruiser bikes and women’s cruiser bikes is their appearance. Many men’s beach cruiser bikes have chunky, masculine exteriors and are offered in matte colors, basic colors, or in chrome. Conversely, women’s beach cruiser are slender, feminine, and are offered in bright and soft colors with optional decals. If you’re not into gendering your bike or following gender norms, the sixthreezero Reach Your Destination and the sixthreezero Ride in the Park are neutral and have a classic beach cruiser vibe.
