Specialized S-Works Venge Disc Vias Frameset 2018
The S-Works Venge ViAS Disc frameset is more than just a bike. When the first Venge launched, it changed aerodynamics, but now, we've designed a complete, cohesive speed system. Nearly every single piece of it was redesigned from the ground up. Every facet was examined, and the result is a bike with supreme braking and a 116-second advantage, compared to the Tarmac, over 40km. In our Win Tunnel, every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue was made with one objective in mind—speed. It's also Rider-First Engineered™ to ensure that every frame size experiences uniform performance, plus front-end stiffness was increased by 30% over the Tarmac. One of its most striking features is the ViAS cockpit. As one of the first elements to hit the wind, we realized that current stem and bar offerings cause too much aerodynamic drag. To achieve the best solution, while also interfacing with the frame, we found a negative 17-degree stem was the best option. Most riders aren't flexible enough to ride in such an aggressive position, though, so we designed the Aerofly bars with a positive rise that replicates your most efficient position. This resulted in a bike that has next-to-no visible cables. Of course, this disc iteration changes the game, as it's ready to provide undeniable stopping power with any penalty to the aerodynamic profile, so you get powerful braking without any sacrifice.
The Rider-First Engineered™, FACT 11r frame design have made the Venge the stiffest, most aerodynamic bike that we’ve ever created. Every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, computational fluid dynamics, 3D printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback. And ultimately, this resulted in the fastest bike we’ve ever made.
Designed in our Win Tunnel, the fork features a top-end S-Works FACT 11r carbon construction that helps to cut through air like a hot knife through butter.
With its FACT carbon construction, the Venge seatpost provides impeccable power transfer and aerodynamic advantage, while still allowing for ample compliance for long days in the saddle.
