Whether you’re just getting into road cycling commuting or just looking for a new bike the Specialized Allez is the perfect choice. Featuring a lightweight alloy frame carbon fibre fork and mounts for racks and fenders it’s as performance-packed as it is versatile.
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. 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 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 weigh – floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier. For the geometry we developed the Allez by utilizing our vast Retul 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 Specialized 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. For the build this Allez features reliable Shimano Sora shifting durable Axis Sport alloy wheels and well-protected Espoir Sport tyres.

To keep your bike running efficiently we offer a free check at six weeks, or about 100 miles. This service can be done by our qualified technicians while you wait if you give us a call beforehand to book it in. You can find us at our store on Kenilworth High Street.
