Specialized Road Bikes

Specialized Road Bikes

Specialized road bikes set the standard.

Specialized has been a leader in cycling technology. To make their bikes as fast and as aerodynamic as possible, they test their bikes on their own wind tunnel. This commitment to speed and aerodynamics comes to fruition when you need it the most in each of their road and gravel bikes. Whether it's the alpine passes of the Tour or the rolling gravel roads outside of town, the Saturday club ride with friends or the crosswinds of Kona, Specialized road bikes set the standard by which all others are measured. Specialized. Made for riders, by riders.

Whether you're looking for the accessible workhorse Allez, the crit ready Allez Sprint, the all-out performance of the Tarmac, the smooth and fast Roubaix, the rule breaking Aethos, the adventure ready Diverge, the flat bar Diverge EVO, the light and fast Crux, the fitness oriented Sirrus, the gravel ready Sirrus X, the powerful Creo SL, or the trail blazing Creo SL EVO, Specialized has a road bike for you.
