There's no denying it, Specialized is still in love with aluminum road bikes, and when it comes to transforming this passion into a labor of love, they make a bike like the Allez Elite. If you're just finding your cycling legs, this is the best place to start. Not only does a light bike feel better when you're climbing up a hill, but it's also essential when you're carrying your bike up to the 5th floor, and this was at the forefront of the frame design. With a redesigned E5 Alloy frame, the Allez features a class-leading weight. Aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes have been implemented to save weight. Speaking of the fork, entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fiber forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fiber fork, the Allez is better handling, smoother riding, and lower in weight—floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier. For the geometry, Specialized developed the Allez by utilizing the vast Retül fit database. This meant creating a geometry that's sure to cover a broad range of positions, while still providing the performance-minded handling you'd expect from your first bike. This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts, allowing you to get weight out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it. This not only makes for a good road bike, but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter. Along these lines, you'll find plenty of clearance for 28mm tires, so longer rides become far more bearable and city streets much smoother. - E5 Premium Aluminum frame features fully manipulated tubing with smooth welds that increase stiffness and efficiency, while looking just as good as it performs. - Specialized FACT carbon, full monocoque fork designed for high-speed handling. - Shimano 105 STI shifters provide crisp, reliable shifting.
You'll be the queen of the road on Specialized's Amira Sport. Its featherweight, yet stiff FACT carbon frame and fork let you scale steep climbs like a mountain goat and tackle high-speed descents with ease, while Specialized's women's-specific geometry keeps you feeling great even when the hammer's down. For even more tarmac-scorching speed, the Amira comes with Axis wheels and a smooth-shifting 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain. Speed control is handled by the Tiagra dual-pivot brakes. The women's-specific Body Geometry components look great, and keep comfort high, even on long days in the saddle.
Few bikes invoke podium dreams and longing like Specialized's Tarmac, and with the Tarmac Elite, you get your slice of the Tarmac performance lineage at a price that's more than favorable. You'll also find a Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 9r carbon fiber construction. For the spec, Specialized selected components that deliver reliable performance, like durable DT R460 wheels, a mix of Shimano Ultegra 8000 and Praxis, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort. - The FACT 9r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of top-end carbon production methods with a Grand-Tour-winning geometry that begs for you to go faster. - FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents. - Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class, these tough DT R460 wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.
Tired of rough roads wearing you out? We were, too. But where we see a problem, we can't help ourselves but make a solution. And in this circumstance, that solution takes the shape of the Ruby Comp with Ultegra Di2. The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made, and it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 10r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some advanced, dedicated engineering, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4's Women's Endurance Geometry. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this is a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Ruby outperforms anything on the market. Lastly, we spec'd it with an awesome set of components that are hand-selected to endure harsh roads. Along these lines, you'll find the Expert outfitted with the likes of Shimano Ultegra Di2 shifting and hydraulic disc brakes, low profile DT R470 Disc wheels, and a host of women's-specific components. - Featuring our Rider-First Engineered design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Ruby. The FACT 10r frameset holds its own with our highest-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control. - DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high. - Shimano's Ultegra Di2 with hydraulic disc brakes not only offers exceptionally smooth and crisp shifts, but it also provides incredible stopping power and modulation.

We're adamant that if you feel like riding somewhere, your bike should be able to take you there with the utmost in confidence. That's why we designed the Dolce Sport to give you all of the performance that you need for the road, with a little extra boost to make riding over rougher terrain a breeze. Making sure every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, we built the Elite from our A1 Premium Aluminum with our Women's Endurance Geometry. This ensures that you stay comfortable and confident over any kind of terrain, while also providing a lower standover. Essentially, this makes getting on and off the bike, as well as putting a foot down, as easy as can be. You'll also find a whole host of women's-specific components, like our Body Geometry Myth Expert saddle. For the build, we spec'd it with Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires. - The Dolce Elite's sturdy and reliable A1 Premium Aluminum frame is built with Women’s Endurance Geometry and delivers two important benefits. This geo improves stability and handling, giving you confident control when climbing and descending, while also putting you in a less aggressive and more natural ride position. The result? Hours upon hours of comfortable riding. - The agile and responsive FACT carbon fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and to give you a smoother ride. - Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting is nothing short of legendary.

Ripping corners, sticking it to friends on the road, cruising down the highway—no matter how you ride, the Tarmac Disc Comp delivers in spades. It houses many of the features found in its S-Works siblings, so you'll have the ride of your life. In order to cut some grams from the Tarmac, but to also ensure that it's stiff and compliant in exactly the right places, we took major steps to improving our Rider-First Engineered technology. From different layup schedules and materials, to visibly different forks, we scrutinized every single aspect of the Tarmac to ensure you're getting the perfect ride. With this revamp, we also updated the geometry, basing it on countless Retül data points and professional rider input. This enabled us to develop a Performance Road Geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front-end and short wheelbase, which delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer. And while stiffness aids in the aforementioned, compliance must also be utilized for an optimal ride quality. That's why we dropped the seatstays, and altered the seat tube shape. We also added tire clearance up to 30mm. This allows lower pressures for decreased rolling resistance, increased traction, and more comfort. Altogether, these additions still have the Tarmac riding like a true race-machine, but it also takes a bit of the sting out of road imperfections. You'll thank us on your next long ride. But why disc brakes? The real question is "why not?" They offer superior braking power and modulation, work exceptionally well in wet weather, and offer a very, very minor weight addition. All this means that you have more control and can go faster with more confidence. We also know, however, that aerodynamic improvements are the most important thing we can do to make you faster. Our Bora-Hansgrohe and Quick-Step Floors Pro Tour riders, after all, are demanding aero improvements on every bike. With this, the aero goal was to discover where we could essentially "add aero for free," by not taking anything away from the hallmarks of the Tarmac design. During the six-month iterative process, three areas were discovered where we could do this—a new fork shape and dropped seatstays with aero tubes. This Tarmac comes with a no-fuss spec that includes Shimano Ultegra mechanical shifting, quick-stopping hydraulic disc brakes, durable DT R470 Disc wheels. - Featuring our Rider-First Engineered design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac. The FACT 9r frame is the perfect blend of value and performance. - Shimano's no-fuss Ultegra shifting with hydraulic disc brakes provides precise shifting and plenty of stopping power. - DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
So long Zertz. It's been fun, but we found someone better for us. In our humble opinion, the Roubaix Comp with Ultegra Di2 represents the future of road bikes, and with one ride, you'll feel exactly why. The super-light frame has been constructed from our FACT 10r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts and, compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some sophisticated engineering, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4, and kept it consistent throughout the size-range with our Rider-First Engineered construction.
