There's no denying it, we're still in love with Aluminium road bikes, and when it comes to transforming this passion into a labour of love, Specialized make a bike like the Allez Elite. If you're just finding your cycling legs, this is the best place to start. Specialized began by focusing on building a frameset that’s lightweight and Wind-Tunnel-proven, and then completed the build with high-end components, like Specialized tyres with Gripton® and Body Geometry saddles. 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 seat stays. With a full carbon steerer tube, Specialized were able to substantially reduce weight while also providing a stiffer, more precise, and better handling front end. Without the additional junction between a carbon crown and alloy steerer tube, Specialized can tune the ride quality of the bike to provide a smoother and more comfortable ride.
