Specialized 2019 Dolce Sport £800

 

We're adamant believers 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 every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, we built the Elite from our A1 Premium aluminium with our Women's Endurance Geometry. This ensures that you stay comfortable and confident over any kind of terrain, while also providing a lower standover. Essentially, this makes getting on and off the bike, as well as putting a foot down at a traffic stop, as easy as can be.

You'll also find a whole host of women's-specific components, here, like our Body Geometry Myth Sport saddle. For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tyres.

 

  • The Dolce Elite's sturdy and reliable A1 Premium aluminium frame is built with our Women’s Endurance Geometry. This geo improves stability and handling, so it gives you confident control when climbing and descending, while also putting you in a less aggressive and more natural ride position. The result? Hours upon hours of comfortable riding.
  • The agile and responsive FACT carbon fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and to 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.
