The SHIV is back and if you think that it's going to play by the rules you're wrong. Re-engineered to optimise speed across the time trial or triathlon format, Specialized has found new ways to make you even faster. The "FuelCell" system has been moved to the back of the bike, not only making more room for hydration and nutritional needs but also making the SHIV even more aero. Frame sizes ranging from XS - L are based on over 1,000 athlete bike fits to ensure your most efficient position is achievable. The SHIV has also been designed to make travelling and bike packing really, really easy. Simply fold the base bar down to the fork and your job is complete. Finally, Roval's C38 carbon wheelset and Shimano's Ultegra Di2 disc groupset finishes the Expert edition off nicely for a bike that's ready to meet all your long-distance needs.
Even more storage. Even more Aero.
The new SHIV features both Hydration and Nutrition Fuelcell storage options. Moved from inside the frame to the rear of the bike the Fuelcell system is now hidden within the frame (even the hydration hose), which not only allows for more fluid capacity, but it also helps with aerodynamics. This extra space makes plenty of room for snacks equating to 10-12 gels, 4-5 bars, or 5-6 chews.
Fit like a Pro
Getting your ideal fit is made achievable with four different frame sizes that are based on over 1,000 Retül fits with actual athletes, all to ensure that your ideal fit is achievable. Specialized's "Shiv Finder tool" makes it easy to determine your size based on your current position, so getting your most powerful aerodynamic position is easily achievable.
Adjusting & travelling made easy
Need more or less base bar stack? Simply loosen a single bolt on each side and tilt it up or down. The aero bars, themselves, also offer plenty of adjustabilities with aggressive and relaxed positions in mind. And to travel all you have to do is fold the base bar down to the fork, unbolt the cockpit, and your Shiv is ready for the bike box.
