From solo missions off the front to mega-watt sprints to the line—Specialized absolutely delivers with their Venge Elite. Boasting awesome ride characteristics, its FACT carbon frame was tuned and tweaked in the wind tunnel for maximum aerodynamic advantage. Its blade-like tapered fork meshes seamlessly with the massive aero down tube, which in turn works with the rear wheel cutout and asymmetrical, airfoil-shaped seatstays to minimize drag. For even more speed, there's a Shimano 105 11-speed group that dishes out flawless shifting and brakes that offer incredible stopping power. Plus, Fulcrum Racing S5 wheels and a svelte carbon Specialized seatpost hide from the wind to give you the ultimate aero-advantage.
This frame’s head tube and fork are 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems without adding weight.
