Specialized made the Allez E5 2020 to be an entry-level road bike model that definitely doesn't feel like one. Whether you're just getting into road cycling, commuting, or looking for a new bike, the Allez is just as performance-packed as it is versatile.
Weight saving was the number one focus in this bike's design so a redesigned E5 Alloy frame was the obvious choice. This means climbing hills or carrying the bike up stairs are all easier. Pair the aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes with a FACT carbon fiber fork and the Allez E5 is easy to handle and smoother across the board. For the geometry, the Allez was developed by utilizing our vast Retül 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.
Featuring componentry and technologies from higher-end models that have been reconfigured to make it accessible to everyone. By combining Specialized's super-comfy Body Geometry Bridge saddle, Shimano's reliable Claris shifting and durable Axis Sport alloy wheels paired with well-protected Espoir Sport tyres, this road bike is almost impossible to beat.
