The 2011 Specialized Allez Comp Apex is a bike reborn. The Allez – one of Specialized’s longest running models – has always been a sporty, nimble roadie, but this season it’s become a true racer. By matching the frame geometry of the Tarmac (the Allez’s carbon fiber big brother) for improved responsiveness and handling, tapering the steerer tube for improved front-end stiffness, and decking it out in with the new SRAM Apex ten speed group, Specialized makes the Allez a bike to be reckoned with.
Lean it into a corner, flick it through a tight chicane, or sprint for a town line and you’ll know the engineers at Specialized have come up with something well, special. The Allez Comp is also available as a frameset (frame, fork, headset and seatpost for $550), so whether you’re looking for a complete bike, or a build project, this bike has got you covered. The easy-to-service and upgrade-friendly SRAM Apex group (fully compatible with all of SRAM’s ten speed components) ensures the Allez will be a faithful friend for years to come. Train with it, race it, or head out on it for all day epic, the Allez will take you where you want to go, fast.
