Specialized's Venge Expert is fast. Plain and simple. To achieve that, this aero road rocket lights up the road with a FACT 10r carbon frame that 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 an 11-speed Shimano Ultegra group that dishes out flawless shifting and unmatched braking. Plus, Fulcrum Racing S3 wheels and a svelte carbon Specialized seatpost hide from the wind to make that first sentence a reality.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
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.
