Specialized's top level aluminium road race frame, the Allez Sprint Disc uses hydroformed tubing and their clever D'Aluisio Smartweld technology to deliver a stiff, light frameset. The full carbon fork is borrowed from the Tarmac SL6, which is a good indication of the racy intent of this machine, as is the included Venge Aero carbon seatpost.

Specialized say:

Many of our World Tour riders choose to kick-off their season in Australia, and some do it on the Allez Sprint. That's a moment worth celebrating through our Down Under Collection, with a limited colorway inspired by the speed and beauty of the Australian Budgie.

As this noble little bird, and much of Australia's wildlife, suffers from devastating bushfires, Specialized is donating $100,000 USD to support wildlife relief efforts.

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.

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 hydroformed tube shapes have also been aerodynamically optimized to slice through the wind, while also providing tons of built-in compliance.

Drawing inspiration from the Rider-First Engineered 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.

Our top-tier Tarmac Disc FACT carbon fibre fork provides incredible stiffness and front-end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter.
