Cycling is fun, and going fast on a sweet bike is even more fun. You'll love Specialized's Vita Limited for its lightweight, women's-specific carbon frame and fork that delivers the perfect blend of speed and road-smoothing luxury. From quick after-work spins to big-mile charity rides, the Specialized wheels and puncture-resistant tires will help you cruise up the hills worry-free. SRAM adds their quick shifting and wide-range Apex drivetrain for easy spinning and fast group riding. Plus, the Tektro brakes provide heaps of control and confidence, while the Specialized Body Geometry women's grips and seat, and the adjustable stem dole out outstanding comfort on every ride.

Specialized's women's bikes make every ride a blast!

To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.

    Comments:

    I first started riding with a Trek FX 7.6 WSD - a wonderful hybrid - but still a hybrid. As I became a more accomplished rider, riding with groups, I was having a hard time keeping up. And my bike weighed a ton, next to everyone else's - and hills were killing me. I rented a woman-specific roadbike, and after only 35 miles my neck, back and thumb joints were killing me. FINALLY, a CARBON hybrid with GOOD COMPONENTS! I call it my Stealth Bike - no one can believe a "hybrid" is passing on the left!
