Who is this bike for?Roadies who want a pure tarmac machine designed for high speed on road over any distance. Race bikes are designed and built to be as light as possible, so expect light frames and overall bike weight to be impressively low. The best road racing bikes are reactive and fast handling – they should be nimble and agile. This is ideal for racing purposes: cutting through a crowded pack of riders, but also for fun, fast rides in the country with your cycling buddies.About the BikeAll too often, corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market, butthe Allez Sport redefines what it means to be “entry level.” Focusing on weight, refinement,and reliability like nothing else in its class, the Allez strays from the norm. And while thesethings are expected in bikes that cost thousands, it’s the first to make these technologiesaccessible to everyone. Specialized began by focusing on building a frameset that’s lightweight and Win-Tunnel-proven, and then completed the build with high-end components, like Specialized tyres with Gripton® and Body Geometry saddles. And while these things are expected in bikes that cost thousands, the Allez makes these technologies accessible to everyone.The Allez’s new frame also takes a large amount of inspiration from its carbon brother, the Tarmac, so it features a tapered head tube and dropped seatstays. witha full carbon steerer tube, we’re able to substantially reduce weight while also providing a stiffer, more precise, and better handling front end. Additionally, without the additional junction between a carbon crown and alloy steerer tube, we can tune the ride quality of the bike to provide a smoother and more comfortable ride.Key FeaturesE5 Premium Aluminium Frame for stiff but light constuction allows you to convert more of your power into speedFACT full Carbon Fork is engineered to flex to absorb shock and vibrationShimano Sora 16 Speed Drivetrain for precise gear changes and making it easier to ride up steep hillsTektro Axis caliper Brakes for controlled stopping in all conditionsEspoir Sport 700 x 25mm Tyres for the fastest speed on the tarmac
