Specialized's S-Works Venge ViAS was designed for one purpose: to be the fastest road bike on the planet. With ride characteristics tuned by Specialized pro riders, its FACT 11r carbon frame was created in the wind tunnel for maximum aerodynamics. The blade-like tapered fork meshes seamlessly with the massive aero down tube and hides the integrated front brake. The downtube works together with the rear wheel cutout and asymmetrical, airfoil-shaped seatstays to minimize drag. Specialized integrated the rear brake with the seat tube cutout for near-zero drag from the wind while ensuring plenty of speed control. A stiff S-Works crank with a Quarq power meter, a flawless Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain, and tubeless-ready Roval carbon wheels with a 21mm internal width mean this bike is ready to race right out the shop door. Specialized even created their own aerodynamic handlebar and stem combo to further enhance this bike's aerodynamic efficiency.
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.
