If you're like us, you get a little tired of riding the same old roads weekend after weekend. And if you've ever shied from a beckoning dirt road for lack of confidence, we have the bike for you—the Dolce EVO. At the heart of it is our DSW technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminum 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 entire size run. Making sure every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, we built the EVO 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 powerful cable/hydraulic disc brakes from TRP, Shimano Tiagra 10-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport Disc wheels, and wide Roubaix Pro 30/32mm tires.
- The D’Aluisio Smartweld technology in the E5 Premium Aluminum frame provides a lightweight and precise-handling ride, while the Women’s Endurance Geometry of the frame delivers improved stability for confident control when climbing and descending. This geo also puts you in a less aggressive and more natural ride position for hours of comfortable riding.
- Veer off and onto dirt and fireroads with confidence with the high-traction, wide, 30/32mm Roubaix Pro tires that feature our long-lasting BlackBelt puncture protection.
- This Praxis Alba 48/32T crankset is perfect for tackling steep grades and rough roads.
