Whether you’re just getting into road cycling, commuting, or just looking for a new bike, the Allez is the perfect choice. Featuring a lightweight D'Aluisio Smartweld alloy frame, it’s as performance-packed as it is versatile.
D'Aluisio Smartweld - The future of alloy
"If you haven't ridden an aluminium bike lately, you haven't ridden an aluminium bike."
Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. DSW, however, takes the joint and gives it back to the engineers. This means they're able to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making the finished frame's balance of strength, rigidity, and weight more pronounced than any alloy frame in history.
Specialized has also taken comfort into account by employing a butted tube design, where excess material has been removed from low-stress areas. This allows the engineers to create a natural compliance in the tubes of the frame, so you'll experience less of the harsh ride characteristics that've plagued aluminum frames and more of the smooth ride qualities that we've engineered into the frame.
Disc brakes make it better.
Yep! The Allez Sprint now comes with disc brakes. High-speed crit racing, everyday road riding - whatever your riding style is, disc brakes make it better with more modulation and more control.
