The AMIRA is a no-nonsense thoroughbred—born to race and always quick to react. Its stiff, lightweight SL4 frame cranks up the speed dial for fast accelerations, while the tapered headtube delivers precise steering and handling for carving corners or dominating tricky descents. The Amira is the race bike of choice for Team Specialized-lululemon and has taken impressive victories at the Tour of Qatar and La Flèche Wallonne Féminine this season. Whether you’re bridging a gap or creating one, the Amira will fly.
WHAT FACT IS 11r SL4 carbon frame with women’s performance geometry and carbon layup/tubesets, plus shaped seatstays, oversized down tube, and one-piece OSBB/chainstay.
WHY To achieve the lightest weight, stiffest, and most performance-focused bike for female road racers and enthusiasts.
HOW Our Women’s Performance geometry features shorter chainstays and a shorter head tube, which optimizes positioning for maximum power and efficiency. By engineering a wide, triangulated stance between the brake bridge and seatstays, and using a large diameter down tube and oversized BB, we build more lateral and torsional rigidity into the frame for faster acceleration.
WHAT Body Geometry Women’s Oura, Jett Gel and Riva saddle, plus size-specific components including an S-Works crankset/chainring option (52/36) and women’s carbon handlebar with improved position and shallow drop.
WHY Optimizes fit and performance for the female anatomy.
HOW We spec each bike individually based on frame size, geometry, and fit research. Through pressure mapping testing with Dr. Roger Minkow, we optimize the foam densities and cutaways in our saddles to relieve soft tissue discomfort.
TAPERED HEAD TUBE/STEERER TUBE
WHAT Strategically designed head tube/steerer assembly that tapers from 1-1/8” at the top to 1-3/8” at the crown.
WHY Increases strength and stiffness for greater steering precision, without making the ride too harsh.
HOW Tapering the head tube to be wider at the base—where it integrates with a 1-3/8” recessed lower bearing—creates a naturally stiffer junction. The gradual transition of carbon fiber from top to bottom eliminates any sharp angles that could cause a weakening of the fiber.
