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 played a large role in the team’s 65 victories last season. Whether you’re bridging a gap or creating one, the Amira will fly.
WHAT FACT SL4 carbon frame with Women’s Performance Geometry and carbon layup, plus shaped seatstays, oversized downtube, 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 headtube, 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 downtube and oversized BB, we build more lateral and torsional rigidity into the frame for faster acceleration.
TAPERED HEADTUBE/STEERER TUBE
WHAT Strategically designed headtube/steerer assembly that tapers from 1-1/8” at the top to 1-3/8” at the crown.
WHY Increased strength and stiffness for greater steering precision, without making the ride too harsh.
HOW Tapering the headtube 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.
WOMEN’S BODY GEOMETRY CONTACT POINTS
WHAT Ergonomic and size-specific components including cranks, women’s carbon handlebars with improved position and shallow drop, and women’s Body Geometry saddles (Oura, and Riva).
WHY Optimized 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.
