Specialized Dolce Sport 2017

Size: 44 - 57

We're adamant that if you feel like riding somewhere, your bike should be able to take you there with the utmost in confidence. That's why we designed the Dolce Sport to give you all of the performance that you need for the road, with a little extra boost to make riding over rougher terrain a breeze. 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 Sora 9-speed 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.
The agile and responsive FACT carbon fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and give you a smoother ride.
Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting is nothing short of legendary. It's built to last over the long haul, and it's well-equipped to deliver precise shifts across a wide range of gears.
