Product Details

2017 Specialized Allez DSW SL Sprint Elite

If you're getting into gran fondos, weekend epics, or racing, you need a bike that's reliable, stiff, and value-packed. You need Specialized's Allez DSW SL Sprint Elite. It has all the performance you need to explore the world of cycling, from a stiff alloy construction and carbon fork to a durable Tiagra groupset. At the heart of it is Specialized's E5 Premium Aluminum frame, featuring DSW Sprint Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminum bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer. Making sure 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. A top-tier S-Works FACT carbon fiber fork provides incredible stiffness and front end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter. For the build, they spec'd it with a 10-speed Shimano Tiagra shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport alloy wheels, and a stiff Praxis Alba 2D crankset.
