Specialized's Amira Elite Compact shares the same characteristics as their Grand-Tour winning Tarmac, but it is specifically tailored for women. Its stiff FACT-carbon frame and fork let you scale steep climbs like a mountain goat and tackle tricky descents with ease, while Specialized's women's-specific geometry keeps you feeling great even when the hammer's down. For even more tarmac-scorching speed, the Amira comes with Fulcrum wheels and a Shimano 105 20-speed component group that boasts on-point shifting and confidence-inspiring braking. And, you'll love the fit and feel of Specialized women's components, too.
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.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
This frame’s head tube is 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
