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 Elite. If you're just finding your cycling legs this is the best place to start.

Not only does a light bike feel better when you're climbing up a hill but it’s also essential when you’re carrying your bike up to the 5th floor and this was at the forefront of the frame design. With a redesigned E5 Alloy frame the Allez features a class-leading weight. Aggressively thin-walled yet tough tubes have been implemented to save weight as well resulting in over a 450g (1lb) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to models of yesteryear.

Speaking of the fork entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fibre forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fibre fork the Allez is better handling smoother riding and lower in weight - floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier. For the geometry we developed the Allez by utilizing our vast Retül fit database. This meant creating a geometry that’s sure to cover a broad range of positions while still providing the performance-minded handling you’d expect from your first bike.

This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts allowing you to get weight out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it. This not only makes for a good road bike but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter. Along these lines you'll find plenty of clearance for 28mm tires so longer rides become far more bearable and city streets much smoother.

For the build we went with a no-nonsense approach opting for reliable Shimano Claris shifting durable Axis sport alloy wheels and brilliant Espoir Sport tires.
