Specialized Allez E5 2017
If you're just finding your cycling legs, this is the best place to start. The Allez E5's premium alloy frame is built for versatility, combining sturdy, confident handling with the rocket-like feeling of a race bike. And for durability, it includes a FACT carbon fork and reliable Claris shifting. It's constructed from Specialized's lightweight and ultra-stiff E5 Premium Aluminum 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 fiber fork. For the build, Specialized went with a no-nonsense approach, opting for reliable Shimano Claris shifting, durable Axis sport alloy wheels, and brilliant Espoir Sport tires.
- E5 Premium Aluminum frame features fully manipulated tubing with smooth welds that increase stiffness and efficiency, while looking just as good as it performs.
- A FACT carbon fiber fork provides incredible stiffness and front end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter.
- Shimano Claris 2400 8-speed shifting is built to last over the long haul, and it's well-equipped to deliver precise shifts across a wide range of gears.
