Who is Specialized?
Specialized started producing bikes in 1981 originally releasing two models, a touring bike called the Sequoia and the Allez road bike. Both of which still feature in Specialized’s range. What put Specialized on the map was the release of the Specialized Stumpjumper later the same year. The Stumpjumper was the first mass-produced mountain bike frame and became synonymous with the rise of a new cycling discipline. Since then, Specialized has gone on to become one of the largest bike manufacturers and releasing a wide range of bikes, components and accessories covering all cycling disciplines. By developing its own on-site facilities Specialized is one of the forerunners of innovation in road and mountain biking technology.
Specialized road range
Specialized road bikes started 40 years ago with the Allez, and since then, there have been some significant changes. Now made from aluminium, the Allez comes in two options: an entry-level road bike with a relaxed geometry, perfect for winter miles, commuting, and gran fondo endurance rides for those on a budget. There’s also the Allez Sprint, an aggressive aluminium road or crit racing machine, which is perfect for budget road racing, although it’s even good enough for Peter Sagan.
For those who seeking more performance, the Specialized Tarmac is a lightweight, pro-level carbon road bike. It’s generally a bit more expensive, due to the carbon frame, but it is one of the most well-respected bikes the world over. Designed to excel on epic climbs, fast descents and the hilltop finishes of both your local Gran Fondo and the UCI World Tour. The Tarmac carbon frame has been built as a perfect balance of precise, stiff and comfort. All Tarmacs use Specialized’s ‘Rider-First Engineered’ technology to equalise stiffness and handling across all frame sizes.
The Specialized Roubaix, or women-specific Ruby (which has not long been discontinued), is an endurance road bike with some interesting technology. It’s set up perfectly for those looking for longer days in the saddle, or who’ll tackle rougher ground, making it ready to take on long-distance classics such as the Paris-Roubaix. Using the concept ‘smoother is faster’ the Roubaix combines 20mm of Future Shock 2.0 front suspension technology with frame and seatpost compliance for a smoother ride.
For wind-cheating speed, you’ll want the Venge. An aerodynamic road bike featuring disc brakes and an integrated cockpit for maximum aero efficiency, the Venge was optimised using computers before being built and tested in Specialized’s own win(d) tunnel to create a bike that is not only aerodynamic but stiff and light with sharp handling. The geometry is pure race-focussed, so mightn’t be right for your long-distance gran fondo, but if you want the absolute best performance from your bike, and can deal with the few hundred grams over the Tarmac, the Venge is a true racing weapon.
If you seek to go beyond the smooth roads in the hunt for empty gravel roads, Specialized has two options. The Specialized Diverge adapts much of what makes the Roubaix a great endurance bike into a gravel bike format, making it a great option for fun-and-fast rides on flowing trails and gravel roads. Endurance geometry is modified, tyre clearance is maximised and Future Shock smoothes out the vibrations and chatter. For real off-grid dirt touring and bikepacking the Sequoia is ready to be loaded with bags to take you on multi-day adventures, so great for those who want to pack the kitchen sink and ride off into the sunset.
