Making sure every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, we built the Elite from our A1 Premium Aluminium 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, as easy as can be.
You’ll also find a whole host of women’s-specific components, like our Body Geometry Myth Expert saddle. For the build, we spec’d it with Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires.
- The Dolce Elite’s sturdy and reliable A1 Premium Aluminium frame is built with Women’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 to 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.
