Specialized has designed the new S-Works Venge to be like no other, now weighing a whole 460grams less than it's predecessor; a 240g lighter frame, 25g lighter fork, 63g lighter in various small parts and another 107g lighter in the cockpit. This lighter model allows the Venge to fly up any steep climbs, transforming the Venge into an all-star in every racing element now with an even more aerodynamic design. To become more aerodynamic, Specialized took the Venge to their Win Tunnel, researching ruthlessly every possible measure. They first used the FreeFoil Shape Library, a new piece of technology allowing them to create new airfoil shapes with different weights and design ratios. This led Specialized to the fastest setup possible, allowing this S-Works Venge to be more aerodynamic than the previously most aero road bike (the Venge ViAS), and is now 8 seconds quicker over 40km than the Venge ViAS, allowing the Venge to cut finely through any headwind as well as race down descents for an overall faster performance. The S-Works Venge also features an updated and improved geometry that's based on over 40,000 Retül data points and pro rider input for the optimum Performance Road Geometry setup that has a responsive front-end and short wheelbase. Finally, the S-Works Venge has been fitted with the best components possible, featuring a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset for smooth and agile shifting as well as hydraulic disc brakes to provide you with superior control, dominating over technical turns as well as providing precision braking in all weather conditions. The S-Works Venge comes with the fastest & most robust disc wheels on the market, the Roval CLX 64s that perform well even when faced with crosswinds.
Fact 11r Carbon
The Rider-First Engineered™, FACT 11r frame not only makes the Venge the most aerodynamic road bike Specialized has ever created but it's also lightweight and stiff in all the right places. Every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue were influenced by hours of testing in Specialized's Win Tunnel, CFD, 3D-printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback. Ultimately, this resulted in the fastest road bike Specialized has ever made.
Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 group offers exceptionally crisp shifts, smooth braking modulation, and it keeps the overall weight of the Venge at an absolute minimum. The Roval CLX 64 disc wheels aren't only the fastest wheels Specialized has tested, but they perform extremely well in crosswinds, so they're perfect for all conditions.
Of course, Specialized 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 Specialized 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.
