It's right for you if...
You want an awesome performance road bike at a great value, and you side with women who prefer the fit and feel of a women's specific bike. You want a carbon frame with a super smooth ride and the lightweight performance of rim brakes.
The tech you get
A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Front and Rear IsoSpeed, powerful direct mount rim brakes, and a full 2x11 Shimano 105 groupset. Domane SL 5 Women's also comes stock with touchpoints designed specifically for women, internal cable routing for clean looks, a carbon seatmast, and a stable Endurance Geometry for comfort on the longest days and roughest roads.
The final word
Domane SL 5 Women's is the introductory carbon women's model in the family, but when you make the small jump in price from aluminum models, you get a big jump in tech, including a lighter frame, women's specific parts, Front and Rear IsoSpeed, a full carbon fork, and a Ride Tuned seatmast.
