The Specialized Allez Elite is a light, fast, entry-level road bike that has some pretty amazing specs for its price. It is the perfect bike to buy if you are getting into cycling.
The bike has some advanced features like the lightweight E5 Premium Aluminium frame and full monocoque carbon fork. These features only come with Specialized high-end bikes.
The Specialized Allez Elite is not heavy, something that makes going uphill easier. The lightweight also helps if you have to carry your bike upstairs.
The bicycle has fender and rack mounts. Adding fenders and racks to the Allez Elite ensures you keep you back dry when riding in wet weather, and you don't have to carry stuff personally.
The Specialized Allez Elite has rims brakes, which are OK, but we would have preferred disc brakes that offer greater stopping power, especially on long descents.
The bike has limited color options.
Specialized first introduced the Allez bike model in 1981. Since then, they have been releasing newer versions of the bike almost annually. Designed to be a road bike, the Specialized Allez is not the only type of bike Specialized make.

Currently, models of this bicycle include the Specialized Allez, Allez Elite, Allez Sport, and Specialized Allez Sprint Disc. Prices for the different bikes range better $800 to $2300. The price range and good quality of this road bike series have made it very popular with cyclists. This popularity has made it one Specialized best selling bikes.
