Allez Elite

All too often, corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market, but the Allez redefines what it means to be "entry level." Focusing on weight, refinement, and reliability like nothing else in its class, the Allez is the first to make these technologies accessible to everyone. Whether you're just getting into road cycling, commuting, or looking for a new bike, the Allez is just as performance-packed as it is versatile.

For the build, this Allez features Shimano's legendary 105 shifting that delivers tremendous performance and value, durable DT R460 alloy wheels, our new super-comfy Body Geometry Bridge saddle, and well-protected Espoir Sport tires.

Nine years young

Owned an Allez Sport 2013 model since new. I have had it properly serviced twice and although it has become my winter bike it remains a great bike to ride in great condition. Amazingly over the years the spec has remained consistent ( mine has105 groupset and brakes and was $1900 in 2013) to keep the price around the 2k mark its still a very good entry level purchase which if looked after will last a long time Allez Vite!

Allez Elite Lives up to its reputation

My first road bike and it has been amazing. Well made and bulletproof reliability. Comfortable, relatively light, lively and quicker than almost everything for the same price or double. Excellent value for money!

Fantastic bike

Great entry road bike. I upgraded from a hybrid as wanted to ride for longer and faster. This bike is perfect. Have done over 1000 miles without any problems. Very comfortable, light with great group set. Worth every penny

Updates beat upgrades

12month review. Resisting temptation is tough. Go too hard on that and miss out. Maintenance is key to a sweet ride, but major updates sure feel good. At this price point it's easy to recommend Allez. Nicely packaged.

Awesome Value for the Money

I love my new 2021 Allez E5 Elite. The bike is beautiful. I got the yellow one and it looks amazing. The geometry is great, the bike is comfortable, and you can't go wrong with the Shimano 105. The only downside is the weight, since all my other bikes have carbon frames. I got the Allez as a secondary bike for use in bad weather and on my Wahoo Kickr trainer. I highly recommend it based on the value for the money, the great looks, and the Shimano 105.
