The latest paint scheme is for the London based 5th Floor cycling collective, who Specialized sponsors, for the last three rounds of the now hugely popular Red Hook series.
This time the Specialized Allez Sprint track bikes have been designed for the 5th Floor team, by a 5th Floor rider and founder Rudy Melo.
Melo has taken his inspiration from the team’s 2017 kit. The kit was designed by Adidas, another sponsor of the 5th Floor outfit. The tiger stripe like design really does stand out and reflects the team green colour too.
The bike will be supplied to both the men’s and women’s 5th Floor team riders and you’ll be able to see them at the London round of the Red Hook Crit Series on July 22 in Greenwhich.
Unfortunately the Allez Sprint track bikes will not be available to buy but these are based on the road going versions of the Allez Sprint, which you can buy from Specialized.
5th Floor was created in 2009 by a group of friends who met on the 5th floor of a carpark to go for bike rides. From there the team has gained a big following with the support from some big names in sport; the likes of Adidas, Specialized, Oakley and Wahoo.
The London based collective then started a women’s team in 2015 and continue to ride, race and organise many different events in different disciplines.
