If you're looking for a complete race-ready aero road bike package without going to the extremes of the S-Works range then the Venge Pro is an extremely tempting choice.
The FACT 11r carbon frameset is stiff and light, in fact a whopping 460g lighter than the ViAS frame it replaces. It's also significantly more aero.
This build uses SRAM's latest 12 speed wireless electronic drivetrain to keep things neat, reduce cabling, and provide minimal gaps between gears, helping you maintain the ideal cadence.
CL 50 carbon wheels are brilliant all-rounders for an aero road bike - as aero as their CLX cousins, just a few grams heavier and with standard rather than ceramic bearings.
The awesome S-Works Aerofly II carbon bars are still very much present and correct, along with Specialized's popular and top performing Power saddle.
There's nothing here that needs to be changed from a performance point of view, it's good to go straight out of the workshop, but as always we ensure the perfect fit, not simply selecting the correct frame size but swapping any contact points to give millimetre accurate precision.
