PRIMERA TEAM VERDICT:

The Allez has always been known as a great bicycle for beginners as well as a great bicycle for experienced riders too. The alloy frame matched up with a carbon fork means you get to ride a high performance frame with a more forgiving fork on the front, making the bicycle lighter and ride smoother. 2018 has given the bike a smart update with a lighter overall weight to the bicycle and improved aerodynamics. 

We tried one of these new Allez models out in Majorca and got a great feel for the lightness of the bike as well as how responsive it was up the climbs. Usually carbon bikes descend with much more ferocity but the Allez never failed to dissapoint. Every single hairpin I felt in full control.

If you are after something built for racing up the climbs then the Tarmac offers a much lighter carbon package with unmatched stiffness and if you are after something built more for the smoothest performance then the endurance Roubaix range from Specialized will give you the best bike with their future shock system.

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, we make a bike like the Allez Elite. If you’re just finding your cycling legs, this is the best place to start.

Not only does a light bike feel better when you’re climbing up a hill, but it’s also essential when you’re carrying your bike up to the 5th floor, and this was at the forefront of the frame design. With a redesigned E5 Alloy frame, the Allez features a class-leading weight. Aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes have been implemented to save weight, as well, resulting in over a 450g (1lb) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to models of yesteryear.

Speaking of the fork, entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fibre forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fibre fork, the Allez is better handling, smoother riding, and lower in weight—floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier. For the geometry, we developed the Allez 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.

This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts, allowing you to get weight out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it. This not only makes for a good road bike, but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter. Along these lines, you’ll find plenty of clearance for 28mm tires, so longer rides become far more bearable and city streets much smoother.

For the build, we went with a no-nonsense approach, opting for reliable Shimano Claris shifting, durable Axis sport alloy wheels, and brilliant Espoir Sport tires.

 

  • E5 Premium Aluminium frame features fully manipulated tubing with smooth welds that increase stiffness and efficiency, while looking just as good as it performs.
  • Specialized FACT carbon, full monocoque fork designed for high-speed handling.
  • Shimano 105 STI shifters provide crisp, reliable shifting.
