Yep you read that right - the Allez Sprint now comes with disc brakes and trust us we're just as excited as you are. High-speed crit racing everyday road riding - whatever your riding style is disc brakes make it better. That's because they bring better stopping power more modulation and more control to your ride. And when you combine that with the durability aerodynamics and ride quality that the Allez is known for you get something pretty special. You get the Allez Sprint Comp Disc.
At the heart of the Allez Sprint is our D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology which strategically places more welding material where it's needed resulting in an aluminium bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer. How stiff exactly? It's the stiffest alloy bike we've ever tested let alone made. Drawing inspiration from the Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ Tarmac this frame also has a unique down tube bottom bracket shell and head tube plus fork sizes that correspond to frame size. This ensures uniform performance across the entire size run.
To make sure that every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road we gave it short chainstays that create an extremely stiff and rigid rear triangle. But it goes beyond just pure rigidity as the hydro formed tube shapes have also been aerodynamically optimized to slice through the wind while also providing tons of built-in compliance.
For the build we spec'd it with Shimano 105 shifting and hydraulic disc brakes DT R470 Disc alloy wheels and a comfortable Body Geometry ToupÃ© saddle. With all of these features the Allez Sprint Comp Disc redefines the potential of an alloy bike so much so that you'll forget you're not riding carbon.
