For speed-hungry road riders and racers looking for high
performance and pro-level looks without the heavy price tag, there’s no better tool than the race-inspired Allez. It's a fast, efficient, and lightweight bike that can take your riding to the next level.
WHAT An ultra efficient approach to aluminum
frame design that produces the most
optimal combination of ride properties
for the experience at hand.
WHY Increases strength and improves
stiffness for the best all-around
performance and handling.
HOW Through methodical tube shaping and
enhanced weld techniques, our engineers
manipulate every aspect of the frame
for experience-specific performance.
Tapered Head Tube/Steerer
WHAT Strategically designed head tube/steerer
assembly that tapers from 1-1/8” at the top
to 1-1/2” at the crown.
WHY Increases strength and stiffness for greater
HOW Integrating the 1-1/2” crown with a raised
lower bearing adds surface area and
strength, which ultimately creates a
SQUARED SEAT TUBE
WHAT Double butted, swaged, and formed seat
tube with a wider, “squared” shape at the
WHY Increases BB stiffness and strength for
greater power transfer.
HOW Through strain-gauge testing, we’ve
learned that the bottom of the seat tube
is the part of the bike with the highest
bending stress. And since square-shaped
tubes resist bending, we used butting,
forming, and swaging to “square” the
bottom of the seat tube for greater lateral
stiffness, while keeping the top round for
better torsional stiffness.
