    Allez Sprint Comp

    2018 Allez Sprint Comp

    Climbs, corners, flat-out sprints—the Allez Sprint Comp does it all. Being the most advanced alloy road bike we've ever made, the Allez Sprint is just as capable as a crit-racing weapon as it is for an everyday road steed. But even better, it performs all of the above at a price that's affordable for any racer's budget.

    At the heart of the Allez Sprint is our D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminium bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer. How stiff, exactly? It's the stiffest alloy bike we've ever tested. Drawing inspiration from the Rider-First Engineered™ Tarmac, this frame also has a unique down tube, bottom bracket shell, and head tube, plus fork sizes that correspond to frame size. This ensures uniform performance across the entire size run.

    To make sure that every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, it has short chainstays that create an extremely stiff and rigid rear triangle. But it goes beyond just pure rigidity, as the hydroformed tube shapes have also been aerodynamically optimized to slice through the wind, while also having been designed with built-in compliance.

    For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano 105 shifting, DT R460 alloy wheels, and a comfortable Body Geometry Toupé saddle. With all of these features, the Allez Sprint Comp redefines the potential of an alloy bike, so much so, that you'll forget you're not riding carbon.

    A monster on climbs

    I switch from carbon Supersix Evo to this bike and I`ve been amazed by the difference. Its faster and makes climbs easier . Sprints feel like something blasting me towards the finish .

    I passed on a tarmac sl5 with dura ace to build my allez!

    Absolutely love this bike! I started my riding experience with the base model allez and loved it so much i bought the sprint the following season! Since then ive opted for aero handlebars, a carbon stem, a better saddle , deep section wheels and a ultegra upgrade but at the end of the day its the frame that i love! The stiffness and compliance you get is unparalleled. Beyond performance the peace of mind you get when riding aluminum instead of a carbon mortage payment makes a world of difference when deciding whether or not to bomb that turn!

    Super Fast Bike!

    This is a very stiff and responsive bike. I weigh over 200lbs so I can usually detect flex in the frame of bike when I sprint, not so with this bike. The bottom bracket is so solid. This bike feels like it pedals itself, I've never experienced a feeling like it. It feels like one pedal stroke launches you into the next like the bike is helping you. This feeling also makes the bike a good climber in my book I'm able to pick up speed as I go up hills now. The bike also corners in a way where you don't lose speed it seems it also turns tighter than any bike i've ridden while still being stable at high speed . I would definitely recommend this to larger riders looking for a solid stable frame. I never get that wobbly back tire feeling with this bike. When you combine everything I've said you can see this thing is serious. Also there were some pro teams that raced this frame to victories.

    Carbon Killer

    Being only 14 and not having that much money in savings, this was the perfect choice for me. This bike is stiff, responsive, and sexy (with deep dish wheels). Yes, it is sort of hefty (17.33 lbs. for my set-up) but it is mainly the rider that matters, not the bike. I'm dropping guys that have 5,000-10,000 dollar bikes on my Allez. It's perfect for my races and fun group rides. My one and only complaint is that I wish that there are different group set options.
