We never want to leave the ladies out so today we are highlighting Lizzie Armistead's World Championship in Richmond, Virginia. I am not going to lie and tell you that I follow Women's Road Cycling and give you some facts on Lizzie. The main fact that I do know is that both champions were on a Specialized S-Works Road bike. The engine plays a big part in their performance, but Specialized's engineering team and their dedication to designing and then manufacturing the fastest bike possible is very impressive! Lizzie rode the Specialized S-Works Amira SL4 to victory:
It's simple: when someone attacks on a climb, you want to respond quickly and with confident assurance, and when it's you who's breaking away, you'll want to accelerate with snappy intensity and leave everyone in your wake. The S-Works Amira is born to race to any strategy, and is at the absolute top of the women's race bike heap in terms of performance, quality, and handling. From its premium carbon frame and highest-end components to its aero and super-fast wheelset, the Amira a true competitor's dream.
- Enjoy the unrivaled responsiveness of the Amira’s super-lightweight S-Works FACT 11r carbon frame. This is our highest quality carbon, and provides a stiff and nimble ride—great for sprinting for the finish or carving tricky descents—while delivering the lowest overall frame weight.
- Enjoy true handling precision, even on the most technical of descents with the full-monocoque, S-Works FACT carbon fork.
- Take your ride to the next level with Roval Rapide CLX 40s, the perfect all-around race carbon wheelset. Lightweight and fast with long-lasting ceramic bearings, the aerodynamic optimized rim shape slices through the wind without sacrificing handling and stability.
- Experience no compromise on power and fit with Women’s Competitive Geometry. This frame geo takes into account female anatomy and differences in size and power outputs, and is engineered to deliver high-performance without sacrificing ride quality.
