Specialized Dolce 2017

Size: 44 - 57

Whether you're new to riding or just looking for a bike that can do it all with aplomb, you'll feel right at home with the Dolce. It's been designed specifically for women, so you can expect an incredible geometry, women's-specific components, and a ride quality that's sure to deliver a smile to your face. Making sure that you get the most out of every ride, we built the Dolce around our Women's Endurance Geometry. This ensures that you stay comfortable and confident over any kind of terrain, while also providing a lower standover to make getting on/off the bike, as well as putting a foot down, as easy as can be. You'll also find a whole host of women's-specific components, like our Body Geometry Riva Sport Plus saddle. For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano Claris 2400 shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport Disc wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires.

The Dolce Sportís sturdy and reliable A1 Premium Aluminum frame is built with our Womenís Endurance Geometry and delivers two important benefits. This geo improves stability and handling for confident control when climbing and descending, while also putting you in a less aggressive and more natural ride position. Result? Hours of comfortable riding.
Subcompact, 48/32T chainrings give you ample gearing to get up the steepest of climbs without sacrificing your ability go hard on the flats.
Shimano Claris 2400 9-speed shifting is built to last over the long haul, and it's well-equipped to deliver precise shifts across a wide range of gears.
