Product Description

Specialized Allez E5 Elite 2017

Join the elite on a Tour-tested Allez E5 road bike frame with deluxe carbon fork, dependable Shimano Tiagra 2x10 gears and Axis dual pivot brakes.

Every Specialized Allez adult road bike is built on an E5 frame. Given that a Specialized E5 frame once retailed at around £600 on its own, this is great news for anybody looking for a best buy in road bikes.

Specialized E5 Alloy
E5 truly is an elite alloy. Tour tested in France by, for instance, Mario Cipollini in the early 2000s, E5 is a unique-to-Specialized alloy of aluminium, silicon, copper, manganese, magnesium and zinc. E5 is more formable than conventional 6061 aluminium. This enables Specialized to specify every inch of tube so the frame is as light as possible where it can be and strong as possible where needs be.

The E5-frame Allez is the latest example of what Specialized do best. That is, more than any other bicycle manufacturer, Specialized have made their name by creating some of the world's best high-end bikes and then making that technology (proven at the highest level of bicycle racing by the likes of Vincenzo Nibali and Peter Sagan) available to us regular riders.

FACT carbon fibre fork
FACT carbon fibre fork provides incredible stiffness and front end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter.

'Specialized Allez E5 Elite 2017
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 E5 Elite. It's constructed from our lightweight and ultra-stiff E5 Premium aluminium to ensure that you get those most out of every watt that your legs can produce. More so, this construction makes for a bike that's equally capable for the road ahead, so you'll find it performing exceptionally on climbs, descents, and all-out sprints.

Even better, these characteristics are all amplified by the Elite's exquisite & confident geometry and FACT carbon fibre fork. For the build, we went with a no-nonsense approach, opting for a Shimano Tiagra groupset, a stiff Praxis Alba crankset, and durable Axis sport alloy wheels.'
