Product Details

Specialized Allez Elite 2018 Road Bike

With its DT wheels and Shimano 105 drivetrain, this bike's truly Elite spec helps you make the most of this year’s radically upgraded Specialized Allez.

Upgrades over Specialized Allez Sport

  • DT rims built on smoother spinning cartridge sealed bearing wheels
  • Shimano 105 STI 2x11 shifters and mechs are two rungs up the Shimano hierarchy from Sora 2x9, so they are built to finer tolerances for enhanced performance and longevity
  • This is obviously a personal thing but don't you agree this is one of the best looking bikes you've ever seen?
  • All new E5 alloy frame and full carbon fork makes every Allez model a full 450g lighter this year
  • The pro-quality Specialized Tarmac-inspired tapered head tube and steerer reinforce the front end of the bike to deliver sharper steering and help ensure judder-free braking
  • Also with a nod to the Tarmac, the frame's skinny seat are 'dropped' to meet the seat tube lower, not just to save weight but to absorb road shock better
  • A slightly more relaxed frame geometry (73 degree head tube / 73.25 seat tube angle in size 54cm) with a shorter reach to the compact drop bars and a 1cm taller head tube make the Allez immediately more comfortable for most riders - especially for day-long rides such as sportives
  • The Allez boasts the clearance and eyelets required for fitting full length mudguards and a rear rack, so the bike is now better equipped for commuting, touring, audax and general year-round riding
  • As with any new bike from us, if you order your extras such as mudguards with the bike, we'll waive our normal fitting charge
  • Comes fitted with 700x25 tyres as standard (with clearance for 28c) to acknowledge the growing consensus that wider volume tyres aren't just more comfortable, they can also be faster - more on this
  • Going back to a threaded bottom bracket will be welcomed as a great step forward by most home (and pro) mechanic

Specialized Allez History
Specialized have been building Allez road bikes since the mid-1980s. From the start, Specialized Allez road bikes have been admired for their build quality and value for money. We in turn have been championing the Allez longer than any other road bike model, so we can safely say that the Allez has introduced more of our customers to the thrill and delights of road biking than any other model.

The Allez Today
All the upgrades described above makes us confident that there has never been a better time to opt for an Allez.

More on the Allez Elite's spec

  • 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. It truly is an elite alloy, Tour tested in France by the likes of Mario Chipollini at the turn of the century, then upgraded and continually evolved since them
  • For instance, the Allez's E5 frameset is smooth welded to minimise material and maximise its efficiency
  • Upgrading from a metal to a carbon fork is probably the single most significant upgrade you can make on a road bike
  • As well as being lighter weight, a carbon fork will be vertically more compliant for a smoother ride and laterally stiffer for razor sharp steering
  • Specialized FACT (Functionally Advanced Composite Technology) carbon forks are regularly rated among the best you can ride
  • The Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain delivers all the benefits of STI - i.e. the gear levers are integrated with the brake levers to make gear shifting slick, simple and intuitive
  • When you ride this bike, you'll completely understand why Shimano 105 is the world's best selling road bike groupset
  • Tektro Dual Pivot brakes offer close-to-Shimano levels of assured performance
  • The Specialized Body Geometry Toupé Sport is one of our best proven saddles - more
  • Specialized Espoir Sport 700x25 tyres boast two layers of BlackBelt puncture protection beneath the tread to minimise the risk of punctures
  • The Specialized Shallow Drop bars makes for easy transition from the bar tops to the hoods to the drops
