One for the road?

With their high-speed, light-weight and good looks, Racing Bikes have significantly increased in popularity in Guernsey in recent years.

The local racing scene is coordinated by the Guernsey Velo Club which promotes activities including races for all age groups from six years upwards.

We have racing bikes for all abilities and expectations ranging from £465 - £5000+. Each level offers value for money depending on what each individual is looking for. If we think a £900 bike equipped with Shimano 105 will offers best value for money to a novice triathlete we will advise them accordingly.

Specialized Allez

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 and this results in over a 450g (1-pound) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to some 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 of your backpack of you and onto a lightweight rack. This not only makes for a good road bike, but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter. And for the build, this Allez features reliable Shimano Claris 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 shifters shift reliably and are ergonomically shaped to fit all hand sizes
