About the Specialized Allez E5 Elite All too often, corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market, but the Allez redefines what it means to be “entry level”. Focusing on weight, refinement, and reliability like nothing else in its class. With the Allez, Specialized is shipping some of their most advanced tech; such as the lightweight E5 Premium Aluminium frame and even their full monocoque carbon fork, previously reserved for their higher end bikes. The E5 frame features aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes which have been implemented to save weight, resulting in over a 450g (1-pound) reduction in the frame and fork alone. The weight advantages this brings do wonders to improve the quality of your cycling experience, essential if you are just getting into the sport. Not only does a lightweight bike feel better when you're climbing up a hill, it's also invaluable when you're carrying your bike up to the 5th floor. Whether you're just getting into road cycling, commuting, or looking for a new bike, the Allez represents unbeatable performance-packed value and versatility.
