Although carbon fibre has very much been the buzzword material in the cycling world over the past decade, it’s important to remember that it’s not the only material you can build a nice bike with. Over that same decade, alloy technology has been evolving and improving in tandem alongside carbon fibre. While the weight gap has closed significantly, modern alloy frames are also significantly smoother to ride too. Highly manipulated tubing means today’s alloy road bikes are more compliant where they need to be, and stiffer where it counts. The Specialized Allez is one such bike, and it offers an excellent entry-point for those road riders wanting high performance, without the high sticker price that comes with a carbon bike.
The Allez comes in two different options. The Sport, which is made with an E5 Premium Aluminium frame and features a taller head tube to deliver a more comfortable and upright riding position. Then there is the Sprint, with an aerodynamic frame design with stronger welding in all the places you need when you are in a sprint.
All Allez complete bikes come with Specialized tyres and wide-range gearing options to make the hills easier.
