Specialized Allez Sprint Track Frameset
$1,200.00
Whether you're tearing through city streets, commuting, flying through roaring crowds in a fixed-gear crit, or racing on the velodrome, the Allez Sprint Track is right at home. 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 aluminum bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer. How stiff, exactly? It's the stiffest alloy bike we've ever tested, let alone made. 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. 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. - E5 Premium Aluminum frame with Allez D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint Technology refocuses weld locations, allowing for more material to be placed strategically for increased stiffness and compliance where you need it most. - Our top-tier S-Works FACT carbon fiber fork provides incredible stiffness and front-end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter. - The Venge FACT carbon fiber seatpost acts as a stiff, aerodynamic perch for your saddle.
Niner RLT 9 Frameset

Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, the RLT 9 encourages you to take the left turn and leave the constraints of the yellow lines behind. An aluminum tube set provides comfort and low weight. The gravel-tuned and custom-painted Niner Carbon Fork keeps the front end stable, predictable, and reliable, even when loaded with gear, so you can explore anywhere you can imagine with absolute confidence in your bike's ability to stay the course. Proprietary forged dropouts reduce weight and integrate the low-profile post brake mount with the chainstay. The slightly longer chainstays, lower bottom bracket, and slacker headtube angle make for an ideal, stable ride on the rockiest roads, and can hold their own in your local ‘cross race.

Niner provided clean, easy-to-install internal cable routing, and ensured you can run the drivetrain of your choice with an integrated Di2 seatpost wiring port.
Niner RLT 9 Steel Frameset
$1,499.99
You ride the road less traveled. Niner’s RLT 9 Steel was purpose-built for adventure. Such two-wheeled adventure calls for a well-engineered frame made of the finest materials. Niner knows this, which is why they blended legendary Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics, utilizing thru-axles and a tapered head tube to deliver the time-tested durability and ride quality of steel with the performance advantages offered by cutting-edge design. The tapered head tube pairs with a gravel-tuned carbon Niner fork that is both stiff and strong while damping the chatter from pocked roads and stones, all while nonchalantly carrying you and your gear. All Niner forks and frames are tested to mountain bike safety standards, so you can explore anywhere you can imagine, with absolute confidence in your bike's ability to stay the course as long as you can. And, you will fear no grade, because gearing options are nearly limitless. The RLT 9 can accommodate a double or triple chainring, or just a single ring if simplicity is your thing. To maximize comfort during extended hours in the saddle, the supple steel is beautifully welded with All-Day Adventure-Tuned Geometry that features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube angle than many bikes often use for adventure riding. This means you get a ride that is more stable, rides more smoothly, and carries loads with pleasure—exactly what you’ve been looking for in an adventure bike. And, of course, the RLT 9 offers front and rear rack braze-ons, as well as three water bottle mounts to facilitate all your gear-hauling needs with myriad options to suit person and purpose.

Specialized S-Works Venge Frameset
$5,499.99
We aren't satisfied with second fastest. Hell, why do you think we have our own Win Tunnel and the motto, "Aero is Everything?" We live and breathe aero because we know that aerodynamic optimization is the best thing we can do to make you faster. And this philosophy has never been truer than with the new Venge. Being eight seconds faster than the ViAS, it’s not only the most aerodynamic bike on the road, but it’s also lost 460 grams. This is the new shape of speed. Surprisingly, our quest for the perfect tube shapes didn’t start in the Win Tunnel. It started with a new piece of technology, the FreeFoil Shape Library. Our engineers wrote an optimization algorithm and utilized a supercomputer (yes, we used an actual supercomputer) to help create new airfoil shapes with different weights, surface areas, and structural targets. Armed with this library of shapes, all with different aspect ratios, we could plug them into the different parts of the bike and test a variety of configurations to determine the fastest setup in the Win Tunnel. Compared to the fastest aero road bike to date (the Venge ViAS), and many others in the space that we won't name here, the new Venge is eight seconds faster over 40km at zero degrees of yaw. It's also faster out on the road in all wind conditions—not just in the tunnel. All bikes were tested with the same fit dimensions, and with the following components—Roval CLX 64 wheels, Turbo Cotton 26mm tires, Shimano's newest Di2 groupset, two water bottles, an S-Works Power saddle, and their respective spec'd cockpits. And while it's cool that the new Venge is more aero, there are other factors to fast. Striking the perfect combination of weight and aerodynamics plays a crucial role in a bike’s overall performance. A bike that’s strictly aero will feel great on the flats, but it'll suffer on the climbs and in quick accelerations. A bike that’s strictly lightweight, however, will suffer on everything but the steepest climbs. So, not only did we make the Venge more aero than the ViAS, but we also took 460 grams out of the module weight. This means we saved 240g in the frame, 25g in the fork, 107g in the cockpit, 25g in the seatpost, and 63g in small parts. So no matter the course, the Venge will prove to be the fastest option when you need to go up, down, and all around. Much of this weight savings comes from our Rider-First Engineered tubes. We implemented much of the discovery from the new Tarmac's development, like different layup schedules and materials, and this culminated in a Venge that’s not only lighter but one that also has a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio and 40% more compliance than the ViAS—no matter the frame size. And while you can't always see these changes, all it takes is one ride to feel the quick accelerations and the bump-eating compliance. Of course, we didn't stop there. The geometry got an update, and now, it's based on over 40,000 Retül data points, as well as professional rider input. This enabled us to implement a Performance Road Geometry that perfectly combines a responsive front-end with a short wheelbase, and this delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer. Last, but certainly not least, the Venge houses some exciting new features. The new cockpit, developed in partnership with our World Tour teams, features a stem with a higher stiffness than anything we’ve ever tested, new bars that are faster, lighter, stiffer, and feature a textured pattern on the tops for extra grip and control. Next up is tire clearance—it has no problem clearing 32mm-wide tires. And, finally, we’ve put our Shimano A-Junction in the seatpost, making it easy to charge, check battery levels, and for team mechanics to make adjustments. - The Rider-First Engineered, FACT 11r frame not only makes the Venge the most aerodynamic road bike we’ve ever created, but it's also lightweight and stiff in all the right places. Every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, CFD, 3D-printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback. Ultimately, this resulted in the fastest road bike we’ve ever made. - Designed in our Win Tunnel, the fork features a top-end S-Works FACT 11r carbon construction that helps to cut through air like a hot knife through butter. - A legendary CeramicSpeed bottom bracket ensures that you're making every precious last watt count.
