Description

All too often corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market but the 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 these things are expected in bikes that cost thousands it's the first to make these technologies accessible to everyone.Not only does a light 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 as well resulting in over a 450g 1lb reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to models of yesteryear.Speaking of the fork 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 we 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 out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it. This not only makes for a good road bike but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter. Along these lines you'll find plenty of clearance for 28mm tires so longer rides become far more bearable and city streets much smoother.With Shimano Sora components Axis Sport wheels and a stiff Praxis Alba 2d crankset the Allez Sport is not only your perfect first road bike but one that you'll be able to ride for years to come. E5 Premium Aluminium frame features fully manipulated tubing with smooth welds that increase stiffness and efficiency while looking just as good as it performs. Specialized FACT carbon full monocoque fork designed for high-speed handling. Shimano Sora STI shifters are reliable and worry free—making sure to keep you riding without hassle of maintenance.FRAMESpecialized E5 Premium Aluminum fully manipulated tubing w/ SmoothWelds 1-1/8'- 1-3/8' tapered head tube internal cable routing threaded BB 130mm spacingFORKSpecialized FACT full Carbon 1-1/8' to 1-3/8' Taper w/ fender eyeletsFRONT WHEELAxis SportREAR WHEELAxis SportINNER TUBES700x20/28mm 40mm Presta valveFRONT TYREEspoir Sport 60 TPI wire bead double BlackBelt protection 700x25mmREAR TYREEspoir Sport 60 TPI wire bead double BlackBelt protection 700x25mmCRANKSETPraxis Alba 2D threadedCHAINRINGS50/34TBOTTOM BRACKETIncluded w/ cranksetSHIFT LEVERSShimano SoraFRONT DERAILLEURShimano Sora clamp-onREAR DERAILLEURShimano Sora 9-speedCASSETTESunrace 9-speed 11-32tCHAINKMC X9 9-speed w/ Missing Link™FRONT BRAKETektro Axis caliperREAR BRAKETektro Axis caliperHANDLEBARSSpecialized Shallow Drop 6061 70x125mm 31.8mm clampTAPESpecialized S-WrapSTEMSpecialized 3D forged alloy 4-bolt 7-degree riseSADDLEBody Geometry Toupé Sport steel rails 143mmSEATPOSTAlloy 2-bolt clampSEAT BINDERBolt type alloy 31.8mmPEDALSNylon 105x78x28mm loose balls w/ reflectors
