Description

Specialized's Dolce Elite E5 is purpose-built to take you places—both physically and geographically—and make sure you're enjoying the best ride along the way. It's the perfect bike to introduce you to the sport, taking you to new levels of confidence on your cycling journey. At the heart of it is Specialized's 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 bikes 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, they built the Elite around their 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, they spec'd it with Shimano Tiagra 10-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport Disc wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires.
