Some companies make smaller versions
of men’s bikes. Other companies simply
change the frame color. But Specialized                 4
focuses on real rider needs, using
anthropometric research and feedback
from female riders to create road bikes that
improve fit, efficiency, and confidence.
From customized tubing dimensions to
experience-specific geometry, every
detail of our women’s road bikes is                                                          The image above illustrates the customized tubing
