We've been really impressed with the latest generation Venge. In
a nutshell: "Faster, lighter and better looking" (see more on the blog).
This S-Works build is the top of the range, built from
Specialized's most advanced carbon fibre and with a superb
selection of components as standard.
The Dura-Ace Di2 transmission is silky smooth and provides
incredibly fast, accurate and reliable shifting with minimal effort
(particularly important when tucked into that aero position).
The bottom bracket and the Roval carbon wheels run on
CeramicSpeed bearings, the smoothest and most durable on the
market. Specialized have a wealth of manufacturing experience
in-house, but they're not afraid to partner with other industry
leaders to ensure that you get every last bit of advantage.
Another welcome standard inclusion are the S-Works Power Cranks.
Dual-sided power measurement? Yes we'll take that, thank you! We've
always been fans of the S-Works carbon cranks, they're super stiff
and beautifully made - this latest version adds power measurement
as the icing on the cake.
All of these parts work in harmony on a thoroughly wind-tunnel
tested frame that's finally added a dash of style and a welcome
spot of extra comfort to the traditional Venge aggression.
