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 aluminium 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 fibre 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 tyres.
  • E5 Premium aluminium frame features fully manipulated tubing with smooth welds that increase stiffness and efficiency, while looking just as good as it performs.
  • A FACT carbon fibre fork provides incredible stiffness and front end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter.
  • Shimano Claris 2400 8-speed shifting is built to last over the long haul, and it's well-equipped to deliver precise shifts across a wide range of gears.
