Built as a value-oriented women’s road bike, the Dolce is to the Amira, what the Allez is to the Tarmac. It exudes a similar style and ride quality to the carbon fibre Amira, but features an A1 Premium aluminium frame that helps to make it more price accessible to help more women get into road cycling. Perhaps you’ve got friends who are trying to get you to join them on their weekend social rides? Or maybe you own a flat-bar road bike and you’re looking to get on something faster, lighter and better suited to longer rides? Maybe you want to dabble in a bit of triathlon racing too? Whatever your needs, the Specialized Dolce is a beautiful riding road bike that comes appointed with all the necessary features to get you out there on the road.
As a women’s specific bike, the Dolce features geometry that’s tailored towards the female form. This ensures that you’re not stretching just to reach the handlebars, so you experience less fatigue in your back and on your shoulders. With a more comfortable fit, you’ll be able to ride longer with less fatigue. Other aspects of the Dolce that help to provide a comfortable ride include the Zertz elastomer inserts in the carbon fork, which absorbs vibrations from the road before they reach your hands. Wider 25c tyres also smooth out the ride and provide additional traction and grip to keep you sticking to the road through the corners. To help you go further, wide-range gearing from Shimano ensures you’ve got plenty of low range gears to get up the steepest of mountains.
