2022 Specialized Allez Sprint Review - A TPC Quick-Take
The 2022 Specialized Allez Sprint was pegged by many as the aluminum renaissance in road bikes, bridging the gap between price-conscious riders and performance-hungry aficionados. But does it live up to the hype?
- Alloy perfection: The D'Aluisio Smartweld technology used in the Allez Sprint's construction makes it a marvel in the aluminum bike domain. The frame is stiff where it needs to be, and the welding provides a unique look while improving the ride quality.
- Aero features: The aero tubing and dropped rear stays are an unexpected but welcome addition, often leading to comparisons with carbon frames in wind tunnel tests. The new 2022 Allez frame is also 41 seconds faster over 40km compared to the previous generation.
- Versatility: Descend with stability and sprint with power. The one-piece bottom bracket and downtube provide everything you need to race the clock.
- Price point: Carbon bikes with the Allez Sprint's feature set would often be priced much higher. This makes it an excellent entry point for those looking to get into competitive cycling without breaking the bank.
- Weight: While lighter than many aluminum bikes, the Allez Sprint is still heavier than its carbon counterparts, which could make a difference in prolonged climbs.
- Ride comfort: Aluminum naturally does not provide the same stiffness compared to carbon. Some power might be lost during hard sprints.
- Component limitations: While the frame is race-ready, some stock components might need upgrades for those looking to push the bike to its limits in competitive scenarios.
The 2022 Specialized Allez Sprint sits in a unique position. It's not just another aluminum bike. It’s a beautiful fusion of price and performance, a testament to what can made with modern aluminum technology. If you're an aspiring racer or someone who loves the thrill of fast road rides but is not quite ready to commit to a high-end carbon price tag, the Allez Sprint should undoubtedly be on your shortlist.
At the top of the Specialized Allez road bike line is the Specialized Allez Sprint, a disc brake racer designed for performance that also wins on looks.
