If you’re just finding your cycling legs, this is the best place to start. The Allez E5’s premium alloy frame is built for versatility, combining sturdy, confident handling with the rocket-like feeling of a race bike. And for durability, it includes a FACT carbon fork and reliable Claris shifting. It’s constructed from our lightweight and ultra-stiff E5 Premium Aluminum to ensure that you get those most out of every watt that your legs can produce. More so, this construction makes for a bike that’s equally capable for the road ahead, so you’ll find it performing exceptionally on climbs, descents, and all-out sprints. Even better, these characteristics are all amplified by the Elite’s exquisite & confident geometry and FACT carbon fiber fork. For the build, we went with a no-nonsense approach, opting for reliable Shimano Claris shifting, durable Axis sport alloy wheels, and brilliant Espoir Sport tires.
