Wait a minute, isn't that...? Correctly identified: Our groundbreakingly fast Tarmac SL7 was the inspiration for the Allez Sprint. From the stem to the freewheel, we turned every screw again and gave the carbon work of art Tarmac SL7 an ultra-light monument in aluminum using D'Aluisio Smartwelding. And whether you're fighting for a title or "just" for 15 minutes of pole position at Sunday's exit, when it comes to driving dynamics, the Allez Sprint and the Tarmac SL7 can hardly be told apart. Copy? More like co-existence. Or also: The world's first aluminum superbike. Are you ready to realize your dream of an aluminum superbike? Then start with the brand new Allez Sprint frameset. Equipped with the Tarmac SL7's FACT carbon fork and seatpost, it's compatible with both aero and traditional stems and handlebars, electronic and mechanical drivetrains, and features a simple, bolt-on BSA bottom bracket. The rest depends on you.
- The Allez Sprint is the fastest aluminum road bike in history. It owes that to the time spent in the wind tunnel by its big brother, the Tarmac SL7. Details like the most complex aluminum head tube we've ever made and integrated cables mean it's 41 seconds faster over 40km than the previous Allez Sprint. This is a real facelift. In 41 seconds you would have a podium photo in your Insta feed, to put it that way.
- Whether you're starting a sprint out of the last corner or attacking like a young Italian at the Giro, the Allez Sprint, with its one-piece bottom bracket and down tube, offers the uncompromising efficiency of aluminum alloy with unparalleled stability. By balancing the power on the pedals and the input on the handlebars, the Allez Sprint ensures that you move quickly and safely to the limit.
- Plunge into the smallest gap, prevail in the final meters, master the most technical descents - all without feeling like you've fought ten rounds with the heavyweight champion. Dropped seatstays and the Tarmac SL7's carbon seatpost and fork make the Allez Sprint comfortable in the saddle and precise on the handlebars—all with the Tarmac SL7's world-championship-proven geometry. It's as comfortable as it is beautiful. Almost.
- One innovation helps us more than any other to improve the aerodynamics, power transfer and handling of the new Allez Sprint: Smartweld. It wasn't enough for us to build the world's fastest bikes out of carbon. We hydroformed the bottom bracket and down tube from a single aluminum tube, built our most complex aluminum head tube ever, and then bonded it all together with Smartweld. This makes the Allez Sprint the first aluminum superbike.
