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 SRAM's Rival 22 shifting that delivers tremendous performance and value, durable DT R460 alloy wheels, our new super-comfy Body Geometry Bridge saddle, and well-protected RoadSport tires.

Awesome bike

This is one was my first road bike as I got more serious cycling. This is a great bike to start off with, highly recommended. Currently it has a few thousand miles, and multiple events. Hope this Allez elite combo comes back again.

Great bike!

This was my first road bike and I could not be more pleased! Being new to the sport and only having ridden generic bikes before, this one makes riding a joy. I’ve had it for 2 years and it’s still going strong. I ride 3-4 times a week and it’s a smooth and comfortable ride. It is a bit jumpy when there is debris in the road, and I’m a little weary when riding slick roads. But I’m looking at adding a Diverge model to my collection to contend with rougher roads :)

Great bike

I have bought this bike in January 2023 and since weather is relatively warm, I have managed to ride it a few times in February. This is my first road bike, before I used to cycle on old cross/trekking bike. Here are my conclusions. This is awesome bike for someone who cycles on amateur - intermediary level. You really don’t need anything more expensive. Allez Elite is very light and very responsive, it is my subjective feeling that it accelerates way better than my old bike. Gear shifting works without any problems, is fast and quiet and I got used to SRAM shifter in no time. Also, installed rim brakes are OK. I did not want disk brakes on my new bike anyway. This way I can adjust brakes myself. Seat is also good. And here is also something objective: since I never cycle during winter I am not in a particularly good physical form now, but despite all that I managed to break my Strava records on some segments and particularly on climbs without any major effort.

Great bike, meh price, iffy QC

700 miles in, I'm still having a blast. At 5'7" w/long limbs, the size 52 fits me well and, despite the relaxed geometry, allows for a fairly aero position. Rival 22 has performed flawlessly even w/ an offbrand cassette & cranks. N/A on the brakes which I swapped ASAP to Rival 22. Even on rough roads, the bike has been comfy and stable, thanks in part to the decent tires and carbon fork. The stock bars & saddle will likely be fine for most Now for the gripes. Straight gauge spokes...why not butted? 2nd, $1700 is too high (the 2021 model cost $1600, and the 2020 cost $1350). 3rd, Quality control was iffy. The rivnuts on the downtube are crooked. Worse, the entire seat tube is rotated 25-30 degrees clockwise so that the bottle cage sticks far out on the drive side. A bike shop kindly inspected my Allez and submit a warranty claim in 9/2022, but Specialized has yet to respond 4.5 months later I am overall pleased with my 2022 Allez Elite, but I'd also recommend shopping around.

ROAD BIKE UPGRADE

This bike as an upgrade from riding a hybrid bicycles we've been riding for years . After riding over the past few years and upping the amount of miles from 10-30 miles, my wife and i have done this bike is awesome ! First thing i notice is that this bike is super light! i mean super light! After buying the Mrs her bike i noticed she was pulling away from me with ease. So the following week i bought my upgraded. So far we could not be any happier . The response is incredible , when pedaling our speed has increased by 4-6 mph The road bike feel of leaning forward which i though was uncomfortable was remedied with a bar extension adjustment that specialized makes . WOW can wait for out next 30 or 50 mile ride this week. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT. GREAT JOB SPECIALIZED

Fun Ride

The Allez Elite is a great entry level bike. It's versatile, handles like a dream, nice parts pick, and the aluminum frame/carbon fork combo is surprisingly comfortable on rough roads. It's considered entry level, but it's a bike that a rider can still grow into over time.
