2017 Specialized Allez E5 Elite
There’s no denying it, we’re still in love with aluminum road bikes. And when it comes to transforming this passion into a labor of love, we make a bike like the Allez E5 Elite. It’s constructed from our 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, we went with a no-nonsense approach, opting for a Shimano Tiagra groupset, a stiff Praxis Alba crankset, and durable Axis sport alloy wheels.
- 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 Tiagra 10-speed shifting is precise, reliable, and ready for years of hard riding.
