Whether you're new to riding or just looking for a bike that can do it all with aplomb, you'll feel right at home with the Dolce. It's been designed specifically for women, so you can expect an incredible geometry, women's-specific components, and a ride quality that's sure to deliver a smile to your face.

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.

For the build, we spec'd it with reliable Shimano Claris 8-speed shifters, sturdy Axis Sport wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires. Of course, every facet of the bike is tailored specifically for female riders, from the handlebar width, to the crankarm length, all the way down to the superlative Body Geometry Myth Sport saddle.

  • 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.
  • The Shimano 2000 sub-compact crankset makes it easy to spin up hills and limits the jump in difficulty between gears.
