In a matter of a few years, the Red Hook Crit Series has transformed itself from an underground city race to one of cycling's coolest new race formats. So whether you're showing love for this new style of racing or want a custom-designed, limited edition frameset, the Allez Sprint DSW Red Hook Edition is sure to turn heads.
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 optimised to slice through the wind, while also having been designed with built-in compliance.
With all of these features, the Allez Sprint Red Hook frameset redefines the potential of an alloy bike—so much so, that you'll forget you're not riding carbon.
- E5 Premium Aluminium frame with Allez D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint Technology refocuses weld locations, allowing for more material to be placed where it's needed for increased stiffness and compliance where you really need it.
- Our top-tier S-Works FACT carbon fibre fork provides incredible stiffness and front end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter.
- The Venge FACT carbon fibre seatpost acts as a stiff, aerodynamic perch for your saddle.
