Specialized’s Dolce Sport Disc endurance womens bike lets you discover the thrill of exploring new rides and routes. This is a women’s specific road bike for newbies, rapid commuters and sportive / club riders - you can do a lot with the Dolce.
The Dolce Sport Disc is for female riders wanting a road bike with a more comfortable riding position and vibration damping properties.
Frame & Fork
You get a light, responsive and comfortable ride thanks to the E5 Premium Aluminium frame. Women’s Endurance Road Geometry puts you into a less tucked riding position for comfort on longer rides. A shorter top tube compared to unisex bikes means you’re not so stretched out on the frame.
D’Aluisio Smartweld Technology creates a lighter frame for rapid acceleration by optimising each weld junction, without compromising strength. Zertz inserts in the seatstays absorb road vibrations, helping to reduce fatigue so you can stay in the saddle for longer. Upfront a FACT carbon fork with Zertz inserts take the sting out of riding too.
The Dolce Sport Disc comes with a Shimano Sora 9 speed drivetrain with compact cranks. This is well matched to the wide range cassette offering plenty of gears for getting up the hills. Mechanical disc brakes are reliable in all weather conditions, and provide stronger braking than traditional rim brakes.
AXIS Classic disc wheels are slightly wider than standard. Combined with 28mm wide tyres you get a bit more cushioning with a bit extra durability than a standard road wheel and tyre system. Specialized Espoir tyres have double BlackBelt protection for reduced punctures.
Women’s specific short reach bars put you into a more comfortable endurance riding position. These bars are narrower than you find on unisex bikes too and come with Roubaix gel pads in the tape for added comfort - especially on rough roads.
The Body Geometry Riva Sport saddle is designed to minimize pressure points for the female anatomy for a more comfortable ride.
D’Aluisio Smartweld technology in the E5 Premium Aluminium 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.
The agile and responsive FACT carbon fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and give you a smoother ride.
- The great-value and smooth-shifting Shimano Sora drivetrain with compact 50/34 crankset delivers a wide range of gears for varying terrains.
