We love, and have always loved, aluminium as a material for building road bikes. While it may have lost some of its cred with the introduction of carbon fibre to the mass market, the Allez Elite proves that this underrated metal can still makes a truly kickass bike.
It's nothing earth-shattering to say that a lighter bike feels better on the climbs, so we put everything we could into making the new Allez lighter than ever before. The tubes on the E5 frame are super-thin, to shave off every possible gram, with the frame and fork tipping the scales at 450g (1lb) less than older models.
There were no corners cut on the fork either, with a full FACT carbon fibre option providing the sort of sure-footed, bend-crushing performance you'd expect from a much more expensive bike. The idea that an entry-level bike should have a low-grade carbon fibre or heavy aluminium fork has been truly put to rest. For the geometry of the frame we raided our extensive Retl fit database to come up with a design that performs beautifully over a varied range of ride positions.
With integrated rack and fender mounts on the Elite model, this bike is well-prepared to transform into a truly rapid commuter machine with the addition of a lightweight pannier rack. 28mm clearance does nothing to dispel the versatile nature of this remarkable slice of bike.
The shifting on the Elite model Allez is provided by Shimano Claris, with super-tough Axis Sport alloy wheels and a set of Espoir Tyres the perfect finishing touches on a high-powered, entry-level machine.
The Bicycle allows us to experience and discover the world around us in an astonishing way. At BUMSONTHESADDLE, we don't want anything to stand between you and your next escapade. Hence, we completely reimagined how we deliver your bike to you. From the safety of the bike during Shipping to ease of assembly, we've created an industry-leading experience to deliver your bike faster, safer, and ready to ride in under 5 minutes.
Before shipping it to you, all your bikes are tested and tuned by our trusted and authorized bike mechs to ensure your bike is ready to ride safely,minutes after it arrives at your doorstep.
Once you order the bike from our website,It first reaches our Service Centre, where our mechs runs multiple tests on the frame and other components to make sure there are no defects or mechanical issues and to ensure that each component is functioning as desired.
Generally, all bikes are shipped in an unassembled state directly from the manufacturers factory. Hence components (especially derailleurs, brakes, headset etc) require adjustment before you ride. So, our bike mechs performs a multipoint inspection (we call it PRE-SETUP) where your bike goes through a detailed check up to ensure that your bike and component are dialled in to perform flawlessly, so you can focus on riding and not to worry about setup.
