The Silhouette is made of custom-butted A2-SL aluminum tubing that is both strong and lightweight for quick jaunts around town. Utilizing women’s-specific geometry that includes a shorter top tube and more standover clearance, narrow low-rise handlebars, and reach-adjust brake levers, the Silhouette inspires confidence through improved rider contact and increased control. A comfortable, upright, less aggressive riding position provides great visibility while pedaling about, and wide gearing enables riders to tackle climbs and flats. Disc brakes provide superior stopping power in all weather conditions, and internal cable routing provides a sleek look and protects cables from dirt and debris for consistent shifting. Smooth rolling city-tread tires move efficiently on pavement and feature an anti-puncture layer in the casing of the tire for peace of mind. Selle Royal's women’s-specific saddle enhances comfort on long rides, and rack and fender mounts add carrying capacity and all-weather utility.
