The Allez Elite 2019 aluminium road bike from Specialized is the perfect place to start if you're just finding your cycling legs. Keeping this bike light-weight was at the forefront of the frame design so you're guaranteed to feel better when you're climbing up a hill or carrying your bike up to the 5th floor. To save weight, the frame and fork have aggressively thin-walled tubes that are still impressively tough. The E5 Premium Aluminium frame features fully manipulated tubing with smooth welds that increase stiffness and efficiency, while looking just as good as it performs.
The Allez Elite has a full FACT carbon fibre fork, rather than an alloy or cheap carbon fibre fork that is often featured in entry-level road bikes. This makes for better handling, smoother riding, and a lower weight so you can float over rough roads and carve through corners. The geometry of this bike is sure to cover a broad range of positions, due to Specialized's vast Retül fit database of rider sizes and riding styles, while still providing the individualised, performance-minded handling you’d expect from your first bike.
The convenient integrated rack and fender mounts allow you to get weight out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it, making it a good road bike and allowing for it to transform it into a fast commuter. To aid in the bike's commuter abilities, Specialized added plenty of clearance for 28mm tires so longer rides become far more bearable and city streets much smoother. The Allez Elite's designers went for a no-nonsense approach when deciding the bike specifications. The reliable Shimano Claris shifting, durable Axis sport alloy wheels and brilliant Espoir Sport tires make this an ideal starter bike.
