When you're out on the road, you want to be confident that your bike is going to get you where you need with efficiency, confidence, and excitement too. The 2018 Dolce Elite is a women's specific bike that will help you go the distance.
The Dolce Elite is constructed from our A1 Premium Aluminium with Women's Endurance Geometry, ensuring not a watt is wasted as you push through the pedals. This geometry also provides a low standover height so you can confidently mount and dismount under any conditions.
Component choices have been made to ensure a confident and efficient ride, starting with Shimano 105 11-speed shifting. The frame rolls on a pair of Axis Sport Disc wheels which are wrapped in Espoir Sport 25mm tyres. Other components are tailored specifically for women including narrow handlebars, shorter crank arms and everyone's favourite Body Geometry Myth Expert saddle.
With the 2018 Dolce Elite, there's nothing stopping you from achieving your goals.
- The Dolce Elite's sturdy and reliable A1 Premium Aluminum frame is built with Womenâ€™s Endurance Geometry and delivers two important benefits. This geo improves stability and handling, giving 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 Body Geometry Myth Expert saddle has been specifically designed for women, delivering hours of comfort no matter the terrain.
