TT courses have changed significantly in recent years, and the
Shiv TT has been designed from the ground up to address the
requirements of these more technical, varied courses.
Weight used to be a secondary consideration, but modern tech
means that Specialized have been able to shed a significant amount
without compromising on stiffness or aerodynamics.
The end result is a machine that's light years away from the
harsh, heavy, poor-handling bikes of the past. Disc brakes and a 1x
electronic drivetrain bring things bang up to date, and have real
benefits in terms of control. Brake later into corners, with
improved modulation, and shift easily and precisely even when flat
out on the extensions.
The cockpit brings new levels of adjustability, particularly
welcome for us as bike fit specialists.
The presence of a one-piece integrated bar and stem brings benefits
in lightness and stiffness, but the contact points remain highly
SRAM's RED aero crankset features neatly integrated Quarq power
meter, so you can manage your effort with precision. And of course
the whole package is UCI legal and race ready.
