As the trend is showing, for 2010, bike companies have taken note and are adding more women’s bikes to their line up. Specialized has added two high end road bikes to their line and wow they are beauties!
The newest and fastest women’s bike goes by the name Amira. Engineered for speed, efficiency and light weight, the Amira uses advanced FACT IS construction, women’s performance geometry and a stiff, oversized head tube with a taper to deliver race-ready performance like no other women’s bike on the market.
Amira Expert starts at $3300 and the Comp list at $2700. With both of these bikes the frames are full carbon, outfitted with 10 speed Shimano parts. Dependent on the bike it may be 105 (mid line parts) or Ultegra (higher end parts.) For a full carbon 10 speed bike <$3500 these bikes are both great. I’ll be keeping my eye out for one to test ride for a better ride report.
