The Dolce Elite is the perfect bike to either introduce you to cycling or to take your ride to new levels. That's because it's purpose-built to take you to new heights, while also making sure that you're enjoying the best possible ride along the way.
Making sure every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, we built the Elite from our A1 Premium Aluminum 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 at a traffic stop, as easy as can be.
For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano 105 11-speed shifting, fast-rolling DT Swiss R460 wheels, and traction-packed 25mm Espoir Sport 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 Expert saddle.
- The Dolce Elite's sturdy and reliable A1 Premium Aluminum frame is built with our Women’s Endurance Geometry. This geo improves stability and handling, so it gives you confident control when climbing and descending, while also putting you in a less aggressive and more natural ride position. The result? Hours upon hours of comfortable riding.
- The agile and responsive FACT carbon fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and give you a smoother ride.
- The Shimano 105 11-speed shifting is durable over the long haul, all while providing crisp, smooth shifts, and plenty of range.
