Specialized Allez Sport 2018
The Specialized Allez Sport 2018
comes under what is generally termed as “entry level” All too often this can mean cutting corners to meet the price-point for the entry-level road bike market. Specialized say they have refined the Allez Sport to make you question just what is entry level. They have focused on the frames weight, refinement, and reliability, using technologies normally associated with bikes that have a far more expensive price tag, resulting in around a 450g of weight reduction in the frame and fork when compared to previous models
The Allez Sport benefits from a full FACT carbon fibre fork giving better handing through the corners and helping to smooth out your ride. Specialized are probably the no.1 manufacturer when it comes to race winning bikes, so when it comes to their geometry you know they are going to get it right. The Allez Sport will instil confidence while still providing the performance-minded handling you'd expect from your first bike.
This Allez features integrated rack and mudguard mounts, allowing you to get weight out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it. Transforming your road bike into a fast commuting bike and with clearance for 28mm tyres those city streets will feel nice and smooth and longer rides more enjoyable.
The Allez Sport comes with Shimano’s Sora 9 Speed, Compact 50/34T drivetrain, which is reliable and worry free. The Axis Sport wheels are a good smooth running wheelset. The stiff Praxis Alba 2D crankset will help to transfer your power input into forward motion.
This is an entry level bike, but one with a little bit extra that makes you feel like you riding something more expensive.
