Specialized Dolce Sport Womens Road Bike 2017
It doesn’t matter if you’re just stepping into the world of road cycling or you’re a seasoned road rider, you should be able to wheel your bike out the door in confidence, knowing that you’ve got the best bike for the money. That’s what the Specialized Dolce Sport Womens Road Bike 2017 expresses - value for money alongside a variety of features to push your ride enjoyment to the next level.
At the heart of the Dolce Sport is the A1 Premium Aluminium frame. This frame is reliable, study and with Specialized’s Women’s Endurance Geometry, delivers a strong, stable base for you to test your fitness with over a range of distances. The geometry has been designed to improve stability and handling through a more upright, endurance position, whilst also mixing in confidence when descending.
Specialized have also managed to improve comfort at the front end by using their FACT carbon fork with Zertz inserts. This fork is strong and offers responsive handling, for a much livelier ride, but the Zertz inserts are behind the comfort. These inserts act as micro-suspension within the fork and absorb all road chatter and vibration giving you, the rider, a much more enjoyable experience.
Shimano Sora 9-speed gearing delivers the wide range of gearing you need to test your fitness, too. This drivetrain has a wide range of gearing that’s aimed towards first-time riders, instead of being equipped with pro-level gearing that is much harsher on the legs. With 16 gears, you can truly find your preferred riding style over long distances, taking on testing climbs and speeding down the descents.
Specialized AXIS 1.0 brakes enable powerful, controlled and reliable braking for a much more confidence inspired ride. These brakes act as well in the wet as they do in the dry, too, so if the weather takes a turn for the worse, you won’t need to walk your bike home.
Specialized Axis Sport wheels and Specialized Espoir Sport 700x25mm tyres are used to take efficiency to new heights. Whereas other wheels around this point in the range may be heavy and hard to accelerate/maintain speed with, the Axis Sport’s are lightweight and strong enough for a wide variety of riding styles. The Specialized Espoir tyres further enhance this, increasing grip and traction in a wide range of conditions.
- The Dolce Sport’s sturdy and reliable A1 Premium Aluminium frame is built with Specialized’s Women’s 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
