About the Specialized Allez All too often, corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market, but the Specialized Allez redefines what it means to be “entry level.” Focusing on weight, refinement, and reliability like nothing else in its class, the Allez is the first to make these technologies accessible to everyone. Whether you’re just getting into road cycling, commuting, or looking for a new bike, the Allez is just as performance-packed as it is versatile.Not only does a lightweight bike feel better when you’re climbing up a hill, but it’s also essential when you’re carrying your bike up to the 5th floor, and this was at the forefront of the frame design. With a redesigned E5 Alloy frame, the Allez features a class-leading weight. Aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes have been implemented to save weight and this results in over a 450g (1-pound) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to some models of yesteryear. Entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fibre forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fibre fork, the Allez is better handling, smoother riding, and lower in weight—floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier. For the geometry, Specialized developed the Allez by utilizing our vast Retül fit database. This meant creating a geometry that’s sure to cover a broad range of positions, while still providing the performance-minded handling you’d expect from your first bike. This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts, allowing you to get weight of your backpack off you and onto a lightweight rack. This not only makes for a good road bike, but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter.Key FeaturesE5 Premium Aluminium Frame for stiff but light constuction allows you to convert more of your power into speedFACT carbon Fork is engineered to flex to absorb shock and vibrationShimano Claris 16 Speed Drivetrain for precise gear changes and making it easier to ride up steep hillsTektro alloy dual pivot Brakes for reliability and consistency you can count on for controlled stopping in all conditionsEspoir Sport 700 x 25mm Tyres for the fastest speed on the tarmacSpecialized Beyond GenderSpecialized design bikes for the individual, and their philosophy is simple: Don’t make a difference where there isn’t one.
