Are you one of those people who can't help but wonder, "where does that road go?" The Dolce Comp EVO is a bike that'll help you find out. Built to tackle any gravel or dirt road adventure with comfortable confidence, the EVO features high-quality components and features such as subcompact, Cruise/Climb gearing, and ample storage for those long explorations into the unknown. 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 bike 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, Specialized spec'd it with powerful hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano 105 11-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Elite Disc wheels, and a vibration-damping CG-R seatpost.
