The Allez DSW Elite is a race-ready road bike that's itching to get to the finish line. With its newly revised Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, coupled with the revolutionary E5 Premium Aluminum frame featuring D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology, it's a bike that's just begging to be put through the paces.
E5 Premium Aluminum frame with D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology refocuses weld locations, allowing for more material to be placed where it's needed for increased stiffness and compliance.
Specialized FACT carbon fiber fork with alloy crown and steerer provides all the stiffness and ride benefits of carbon in a more accessible package.
All-new Shimano Tiagra crankset provides crisp shifting with only a minimal weight increase.
