The Allez for years has stood out as a brilliant option for anyone looking to get started into road cycling. From its price point to its componentry the Allez hits the spot and this year's Allez 2019 range is no different. You will find the fork on the Allez is made from Carbon, boosting handling in tough conditions as well as lowering the overall weight of the bike. Integrated fender and rack mounts mean that you can take the weight off your back when commuting and instead put it on the bike. The E5 aluminium frame has been redesigned to save weight, resulting in 450g (1-pound) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to some models of yesteryear as well as being backed by Specialized's lifetime warranty. The Allez sprint frameset also integrates D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint technology which refocuses welding positions that boosts stiffness and overall comfort of the bike. To finish the Comp edition off, this version of the Allez features a DT Swiss wheelset that offers a brilliant lightweight and reliable training option and Shimano's 105 11-speed groupset that gets the balance of durability and great shifting just right whether you're riding through the winter or summer.
E5 Premium aluminium frame with Allez D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint Technology refocuses weld locations, allowing for more material to be placed strategically for increased stiffness and compliance where you need it most.
Fact Carbon Fork
A full FACT carbon fibre fork means the Allez has better handling, smoother riding, and is lower in weight—floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier.
Venge Carbon Seatpost
The Venge FACT carbon fibre seatpost acts as a stiff, aerodynamic perch for your saddle.
For the build, Specialized spec'd it with Shimano 105 shifting, DT R460 alloy wheels, and a comfortable Body Geometry Toupé saddle. With all of these features, the Allez Sprint Comp redefines the potential of an alloy bike, so much so, that you'll forget you're not riding carbon.
