Specialized Flat Bar Road Bikes


Specialized Flat Bar Road Bikes

California-based Specialized is one of the most widely known bike makers on the planet — and for good reason. A commitment to new technology that is well summed up in their mantra “innovate or die” has helped Specialized remain consistently at the front of the pack in the cycling world. It is this forward-looking approach that has led Specialized to deliver high-performance road bikes, mountain bikes and commuter bikes, which they’ve made their name on.

Specialized flat bar road bikes are some of the most versatile models in the specialized line, delivering capable performance for more aggressive riders and a pleasant ride for those who just need a reliable means of transportation.

How Do You Like to Ride?

Flat bar offerings from Specialized are available in trim levels that will satisfy everyone from the beginning rider to experienced cyclists. They even have several models with geometry designed specifically for female riders.

It’s important to consider your riding style before purchasing a Specialized flat bar road bike. Do you plan on using this bike primarily as a trainer or race bike, or will it see most of its use making trips into town to run errands? Let’s take a closer look at a few of the models Specialized offers:

  • Specialized Sirrus Elite Road Bikes: The Sirrus Elite is one of the most well-rounded bikes in this category. A rigid E5 alloy frame combined with fitness geometry lend this bike the speed for use as a trainer without detracting from the maneuverability you demand around town. A Shimano Alivio drivetrain with trigger-style shifters makes it more than capable of hauling down your buddies at the front of the pack when it’s time to drop the hammer.
  • Specialized Allez Road Bikes: If you’re new to the sport of cycling, you’re looking for a bike that won’t hinder your development at a reasonable price. Specialized Allez bikes are just that — they deliver the nimble handling and exceptional acceleration you need to hone your skills at a value that’s truly exceptional. You’ll find that the race-derived geometry used by Allez bikes is a common thread in all high-performance Specialized road bikes. With an E5 premium aluminum frame and reliable Shimano drivetrain, the Allez can haul a lot more than the mail.

  • Specialized Vita Road Bikes: For decades, female cyclists have been forced to ride at a disadvantage because the equipment they used was based on measurements of male cyclists. Bikes such as the Specialized Vita have ended that trend and given women who ride an optimized platform. Now, they can excel at their sport using equipment that won’t hold them back. Specialized Vita bikes use geometry that’s optimized for the female rider and feature a full Shimano drivetrain. These capable bikes are equally at home coasting down a country road or at full sprint up your local hill.
