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.

Specialized's Venge is an all-out aero race machine built to fly off the front, take powerful pulls for the team and get you across the line first. Highlights include:

The Venge's stout and minimal front end optimizes your performance with lightness, stiffness, and excellent aerodynamics. The tail of the Venge is as skinny as the front end to clean noisy air and add even more wind-cheating aero efficiency. The aerodynamic seatpost cuts drag, too, is extra stiff and graduated for easily setting and maintaining your seat height.

The Venge's massive bottom bracket junction maximizes your power transfer for awesome jumps and sprints. Beefy chainstays and seatstays ensure outstanding efficency for powering down the road, dancing over climbs and dominating sprints. Specialized's engineers went as far as designing a headset top cap that smooths the air over and around the stem for additional wind cheating.

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.
