Description

If you're like us, you get a little tired of riding the same old roads weekend after weekend. And if you've ever shied from a beckoning dirt road for lack of confidence, Specialized has the bike for you—the Dolce EVO. At the heart of it is their 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 EVO 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 powerful cable/hydraulic disc brakes from TRP, Shimano Tiagra 10-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport Disc wheels, and wide Roubaix Pro tires.

I love this bike, and would have paid a bit more to have this non-carbon frame bike with better components. It has a fantastic geometry for me and I enjoy it more than my other cross-bike.
