Climbs corners flat-out sprints—the Allez Sprint Comp does it all. Being the most advanced alloy road bike we've ever made the Allez Sprint is just as capable as a crit-racing weapon as it is for an everyday road steed. But even better it performs all of the above at a price that's affordable for any racer's budget.
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 optimized to slice through the wind while also having been designed with built-in compliance.
For the build we spec'd it with Shimano 105 shifting DT R460 alloy wheels and a comfortable Body Geometry Toupé saddle. With all of these features the Allez Sprint Comp redefines the potential of an alloy bike so much so that you'll forget you're not riding carbon.
