SPECIALIZED ALLEZ - 2018

Specialized
£599.00

Whether you're just getting into road cycling, commuting, or just looking for a new bike, the Allez is the perfect choice. Featuring a lightweight alloy frame, carbon fibre fork, and mounts for racks and fenders, it's as performance-packed as it is versatile.

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, as well, resulting in over a 450g (1lb) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to models of yesteryear.

Speaking of the fork, entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fibre forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fibre 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, we developed the Allez by utilizing our 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. For the build, this Allez features reliable Shimano Sora shifting, durable Axis Sport alloy wheels, and well-protected 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.
  • Specialized FACT carbon, full monocoque fork designed for high-speed handling.
  • Shimano 2000 Claris STI shifters shift reliably and are ergonomically shaped to fit all hand sizes.

Cyclescheme is the UK's number one provider of tax-free bikes for the Government's Cycle to Work initiative. It's a brilliant programme where everyone wins - employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too! Cyclescheme has a great track record in helping businesses of all sizes to set up and run successful Cycle to Work schemes.

How it Works

The cycle to work scheme is a government initiative which allows employees to hire bicycles tax free from their employers using salary sacrifice. As the payments into the scheme are made before tax and national insurance are calculated this leads to potential savings of up to 42%

Typical example for an employee earning £18,000 pa

Please Note: Savings will differ for each individual

Total Cost of Bike and accessories £600
Net Cost of Bike and accessories inc admin £600
Income Tax saving over hire period £120
National Insurance saving over hire period £72
   
Final Cost of Bike & Accessories £408
Total Saving £192
Gross Salary Sacrifice (12 month period) £50
Net Salary Sacrifice (12 month period) £34
   
Percentage Saving over RRP 32%

How to Apply

If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or call us to ask us for a quotation for the bicycle and accessories you wish to choose and pass the quote to your employer. Once they check that you are eligible and are happy you have met their own criteria, you will be sent a certificate which you will be able to exchange for the bike/accessories

Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000.
