2011 Specialized Amira Expert - Women's

When the pace is heating up in the final miles and you're looking for that extra ounce of speed, you'll be glad to have Specialized's Amira Expert on your side. Its FACT-carbon frame and fork sing up steep climbs, soar across the flats and tackle tricky descents with ease, while Specialized's women's-specific geometry keeps you feeling great even when the hammer's down. Plus, the Fulcrum wheels keep you rolling easy and the Shimano Ultegra 20-speed components shift like a dream and brake with grace and power. And, the cranks are compact, perfect for making any hill in your way a mere speed bump. What's more, the Amira is outfitted with Specialized women's components that make every mile more enjoyable than the last.

Features and Information

  • Learn how Specialized’s women’s-specific features will make your next ride your best ride!
  • View the geometry chart.
  • 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.
  • Specialized's Zertz viscoelastic inserts damp vibrations for a velvety smooth ride so you stay comfortable and refreshed mile after mile.
  • Choose your preferred pedals (sold separately) from our wide selection.

      A womans bike ACTUALLY for a woman. The geometry is designed with a smaller torso in mind. I tested plenty of womens bikes in search of a good fit. This bike is small not only in frame size, but they way the handle bars are designed I can reach the shifters and the breaks. If you have felt like you can't find a bike that fits you try the amira. Great road feel, stiff, but the carbon still soaks up the bumps. Acceleration is unreal. LOVE IT. The only con is since it is so small ( i ride the 48cm) its hard to get your water bottles to fit right. A minor inconvenience I can handle. If you are looking for a womans bike with out sacrifice this is the bike.

      Comments:

      I absolutely adore this bike. I recently upgraded from my entry-level steel bike, and the difference is unreal. It only weighs about 18 lbs (as I have it outfitted--I switched the wheels to Rovals from the Mavics, carbon bottle cages, etc.), is very nimble, control is awesome, and you can really *feel* the quality of the components and frame as you're riding. Plus, it's just gorgeous. The blue and carbon look awesome together - feminine without being overly 'girly'. I am SO happy with this bike!
