Specialized Dolce Elite Womens Road Bike 2016
The new Specialized Dolce Elite Womens Road Bike 2016 packs a whole lot of performance into a quality ride. Purpose-built to allow you to explore and ride to your heart's content, the Dolce Elite is constructed from a smooth-riding premium aluminium frame with reliable Shimano Tiagra gearing. This is the perfect bike to introduce you to the sport, or take you to new levels of confidence on your cycling journey.
D’Aluisio Smartweld technology in the E5 Premium Aluminium frame provides a lightweight and precise-handling ride, while the Women’s Endurance Geometry of the frame delivers improved stability for confident control when climbing and descending.
This geo also puts you in a less aggressive and more natural ride position for hours of comfortable riding.
The agile and responsive FACT carbon, full-monocoque fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and give you a smoother ride.
The Dolce Elite features Shimano’s Tiagra drivetrain with compact 50/34 gearing. This affordable, quality group provides smooth and reliable shifting on climbs.
