Now it’s released. The new Specialized Venge which can be can help you save time without any harder effort.
The two biggest things is the odd stem and handlebar that keeps together with just two bolts and have all wiring internal (not for mechanical gears)
The other thing is the brakes. Hidden but not as bad v-brakes just stuck behing the fork and under the chainstay. These go out quiet a bit:
Together with the new Evade GC skinsuit and an Evade (instead of Prevail) you can save 5min over 40km compared to a Tarmac with 40mm profile Roval wheels.
5min in 40km!!! If you ride around Vättern (300km) you’ll save around 40min. Like 20min in a regular road race. Try not to think about such big savings 😉
The coolest thing with the new Venge ViAS if you ask me is the front. I really like shapes of forks and I think they really got a good one with a clean transition from the beautiful frame on this:
To top this post with some real life Bikeradar has tested it together with McLaren:
This news is so much cooler than my cycling this morning that was great 🙂
