2018 Dolce

Whether you're new to riding or just looking for a bike that can do it all with aplomb, you'll feel right at home with the Dolce. It's been designed specifically for women, so you can expect an incredible geometry, women's-specific components, and a ride quality that's sure to deliver a smile to your face.

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, as easy as can be.

For the build, we spec'd it with reliable Shimano Claris 8-speed shifters, sturdy Axis Sport wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires. Of course, every facet of the bike is tailored specifically for female riders, from the handlebar width, to the crankarm length, all the way down to the superlative Body Geometry Myth Sport saddle.

Simply the best

I purchased this bike in 2019 and am still impressed with the speed every ride. The maintenance has been easy. I’m still loving the bike today just as much as I did the day I got it. It’s worth every cent.

10-year anniversary and still my favorite possession

I've been with my 2007 Dolce for 10 years now, through everything from commuting 120+ miles/week on questionable roads to a half-Ironman triathlon. It has hauled more than 75lbs of groceries (no trailer) five miles and it still is slick enough to get me to class on time when I'm running late. It has been to WA, CA, and CO, taken no small amount of abuse, and has served me well in all states on a variety of terrain. I absolutely love this bike!

The Perfect Bike

While originally I was looking for a different color combo, it was love at first ride with this bike. Efficient, simple and elegant design, lightweight and crazy fast, this is a fantastic option for women just getting into cycling! Couldn't say enough great things about this bike.
