2017 Allez DSW SL Sprint Comp

Climbs, corners, flat-out sprints—the Allez DSW SL Sprint Comp does it all. Even better, it performs all of the above at a price that's affordable for any racer's budget. At the heart of it is our DSW Sprint Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminum 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 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. Making sure 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. For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano Ultegra shifting, Axis Elite alloy wheels, and a stiff Praxis Alba 2D crankset.

Best Aluminum frame in the market

Great frame design... light weight, the welding points is nicely finished and the geometry of the frame is perfect, for me the Allez Sprint Comp is the best Aluminum frame in the market these days, would go even better with some better groupsets, components and wheels as it comes with standard components and wheels

Crank and wheels are trash

The frame is great and handles well. However, the shifting on the Praxis crank is FU_BAR. You get only 3 out of the 4 trim positions that you paid for. You can't use half the gears on this bike without chain rub, including small-big, the easiest gear. The wheels are incredibly flexy and almost an insult to this bike. Mine are so flexy that they scrub the rear mech when I climb in the easiest gear. The mechanic had to put in a 2mm spacer to move my cassette away from the spokes. Don't play yourself and get the 2017 model. Get the 2018 with the 5800 crank and dt Swiss wheels (which are also wider). Or wait for the 2019 model.
