Overview
Technical Specifications
Geometry
The Dolce Elite E5 is purpose-built to take you places—both physically and geographically—and make sure you're enjoying the best ride along the way. It's the perfect bike to introduce you to the sport, taking you to new levels of confidence on your cycling journey. At the heart of it is our DSW technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminium bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer. How stiff, exactly? It's one of the stiffest alloy bike we've ever tested. Drawing inspiration from the Rider-First Engineered™ philosophy, this frame has a unique down tube, bottom bracket shell, and head tube. This ensures uniform performance across the entyre size run. Making sure every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, we built the Elite around our Women's Endurance Geometry. This ensures that you stay comfortable and confident over any kind of terrain, while also providing a lower standover to make getting on/off the bike, as well as putting a foot down, as easy as can be. For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano Tiagra 10-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport Disc wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tyres.
  • The Dolce's sturdy and reliable E5 Premium aluminium frame w/ D’Aluisio Smartweld technology is built with our 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.
