All too often, corners are cut to meet price-points in the entry-level road bike market, but the 2020 Specialized Allez Elite 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, Specialized's new super-comfy Body Geometry Bridge saddle, and well-protected Espoir Sport tyres.

Highlights

  • Not only does a lightweight bike feel better when you're climbing up a hill, but it's also essential when you're carrying your bike up to the 5th floor, and this was at the forefront of the frame design.
  • With a redesigned E5 Alloy frame, the Allez features a class-leading weight. Aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes have been implemented to save weight and this results in over a 450g reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to some models of yesteryear.
  • Entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fibre forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fibre fork, the Allez is better handling, smoother riding, and lower in weight - floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier.
  • For the geometry, Specialized developed the Allez by utilizing their vast Retül fit database. This meant creating a geometry that's sure to cover a broad range of positions, while still providing the performance-minded handling you'd expect from your first bike.
  • This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts, allowing you to get the weight of your backpack off you and onto a lightweight rack. This not only makes for a good road bike, but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter.

Secure Delivery

For security purposes, we regrettably can no longer ship to forwarding centres, PO Boxes and locker boxes. For some items such as bikes and electric scooters, these can only be delivered to the billing address, no change of address or in-transit redirection is permitted for any consignments.

Easy Returns

If an item doesn't fit, or isn't quite what you expected then simply fill out the enclosed returns form and return your unwanted items to us within 28 days for a full refund, we'll accept orders returned to us after this period with refunds made via gift vouchers for use against future orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to cover the costs of returning items to us.

For further information please see our Refund Policy for further details.

Bike Delivery

Unfortunately we only have a contract to ship large consignments to MAINLAND UK addresses, if you live in the Highlands or on an offshore Isle please get in touch prior to purchasing as we can arrange for an ad hoc collection with Parcelforce for a fee - see details at the bottom of this section for details.

We aim to have all the bikes we stock pre-built and available for immediate purchase online and for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our fully trained Cytech mechanics will package your bike into one of our custom built boxes.

These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes almost fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g. brakes, gear indexing etc.

Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedal (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.

If you live outside of MAINLAND UK or in any of the postcodes listed below we can most likely still ship a bike to you but please get in touch as the surcharges we're billed by the courier vary from location to location.

Postcodes: AB, FK, HS, IV, KA, KW, PA, PH, ZE, IM, BT and GU, JE.
