2020 Specialized Allez E5 Road Bike
All too often corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market but the Allez redefines what it means to be entry level. Focusing on weight refinement and reliability like nothing else in its class the Allez is the first to make these technologies accessible to everyone. 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. For the build this Allez features reliable Shimano Claris shifting durable Axis Sport alloy wheels our new super-comfy Body Geometry Bridge saddle and well-protected Espoir Sport tires. Not only does a lightweight bike feel better when you're climbing up a hill but its also essential when youre 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 and this results in over a 450g (1-pound) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to some models of yesteryear. Entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fiber forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fiber 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 thats sure to cover a broad range of positions while still providing the performance-minded handling youd expect from your first bike. This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts allowing you to get weight of your backpack off you and onto a lightweight rack. This not only makes for a good road bike but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter.

Specialized Road Bikes
Specialized was born in California in 1974, by Mike Sinyard, initially as an Italian Component import business, and shortly afterwards manufacturing their own product ranges. Their first bikes were created in 1981, the Sequoia tourer and the still popular Allez road and Stumpjumper mountain bikes. In 1989 they were the second ever company to create a carbon fibre mountain bike, in the form of the Epic. To this day they offer a huge variety of bicycles, from children's to road bikes to mountain bike, which vary in cost from a few hundred to several thousand pounds. Nowadays Specialized are renowned for not only their bike ranges, but also their components, helmets, shoes and clothing lines, which have a reputation for being well designed yet affordable, and as such are a popular choice amongst UK riders of all levels.
