Specialized 2017 Venge Vias Expert Disc

The Venge ViAS Expert Disc w/ Ultegra delivers World Tour performance at a price that competitive riders will find more than palatable. Every facet of it was born in our Win Tunnel, 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 for 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. 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 with undeniable stopping power with any penalty to the aerodynamic profile, so you get powerful hydraulic disc braking without any sacrifice. Then there's the crisp Shimano Ultegra 11-speed groupset and sturdy DT R460 disc wheels that amplify the overall performance of this race rig. So when it comes to sprinting to the line, this Venge refuses to be outdone.

  • 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 FACT carbon construction that helps to cut through air like a hot knife through butter.
  • Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes provide exceptional power and modulation, finally marrying the Venge's unrivaled aerodynamic design with braking that excels in any condition.
