FEATURES:

We aren't satisfied with second fastest. Specialized knows that aerodynamic optimization is the best thing they can do to make you faster. And this philosophy has never been more accurate than with the new Venge. Being eight seconds faster than the ViAS, it’s not only the most aerodynamic bike on the road, but it’s also lost 460 grams. And now with SRAM RED eTAP, you’re definitively looking at the new shape of speed.

The quest for the perfect tube shapes started with a new piece of technology, the FreeFoil Shape Library. Engineers wrote an optimization algorithm and utilized a supercomputer (yes, an actual supercomputer) to help create new airfoil shapes with different weights, surface areas, and structural targets. Armed with this library of shapes, all with different aspect ratios, they could plug them into the different parts of the bike and test a variety of configurations to determine the fastest setup in the wind tunnel.

Compared to the fastest aero road bike to date (the Venge ViAS), and many others in the space that we won't name here, the new Venge is eight seconds faster over 40km at zero degrees of yaw. It's also faster out on the road in all wind conditions—not just in the tunnel.

Striking the perfect combination of weight and aerodynamics plays a crucial role in a bike’s overall performance. A bike that’s strictly aero will feel great on the flats, but it'll suffer on the climbs and in quick accelerations. A strictly lightweight bike, however, will suffer on everything but the steepest hill climbs. So, not only did Specialized make the Venge more aero than the ViAS, but they also took 460 grams out of the module weight. 

This means you save 240g in the frame, 25g in the fork, 107g in the cockpit, 25g in the seatpost, and 63g in small parts. So no matter the course, the Venge will prove to be your fastest option when you need to go up, down, and all around.

Much of this weight savings comes from Rider-First Engineered™ tubes. Specialized implemented much of the discovery from the new Tarmac's development, like different layup schedules and materials, and this culminated in a Venge that’s not only lighter, but also one that has a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio and 40% more compliance than the ViAS—no matter the frame size. And while you can't always see these changes, all it takes is one ride to feel the quick accelerations and the bump-eating compliance.

Of course, Specialized didn't stop there. They've updated the geometry by basing it on over 40,000 Retül data points, as well as professional rider input. This enabled us to implement a Performance Road Geometry that perfectly combines a responsive front-end with a short wheelbase, and this delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.

Last, but certainly not least, the Venge houses some exciting new features. The new cockpit, developed in partnership with our World Tour teams, features a stem with higher stiffness than anything we’ve ever tested, new bars that are faster, lighter, stiffer, and feature a textured pattern on the tops for extra grip and control. Next up is tire clearance—it has no problem clearing 32mm-wide tires.

The S-Works Venge comes with the best component spec around, with the all-new SRAM RED eTAP AXS groupset, hydraulic disc brakes, Roval CLX 64 Disc wheels dressed with 700x26mm Turbo Cotton tires, and even an integrated power meter in the RED AXS crankset.

  • The Rider-First Engineered™, FACT 11r frame is lightweight and stiff in all the right places. Every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, CFD, 3D-printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback. Ultimately, this results in the fastest, most aero road bike Specialized has ever made.
  • SRAM's RED eTAP AXS group provides exceptionally crisp shifts, smooth braking modulation, and it keeps the overall weight of the Venge at an absolute minimum.
  • The Roval CLX 64 disc wheels aren't only the fastest wheels we've tested, but they perform exceptionally well in crosswinds, so they're perfect for all conditions.
