All too often corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market but the Allez Sport redefines what it means to be "entry level." Focusing on weight refinement and reliability like nothing else in its class the Allez strays from the norm. And while these things are expected in bikes that cost thousands it's the first to make these technologies accessible to everyone.
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 Ret�l 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.
