The 2017 Specialized Venge ViAS Pro Disc UDi2 is a top-end aero road race bike. A glorious all-carbon frame shaped with wind tunnel testing and exhaustive experimentation delivers impressive aerodynamic gains, translating to nearly two minutes' advantage over the more traditional Tarmac over a 40 km course. Joins are immaculate; the junctures at stem and fork look like a single seamless whole. Kit is appropriate for a frame of this quality: Shimano's always-reliable high-performing Ultegra group and high-end RS805 hydraulic disc brakes, mesh well with the Roval deep-rim wheels and teardrop-shaped cranks. Tires, of course, are Turbos, here in a supple, road-holding 220 TPI for high traction and warp speed.
A very good aero road racer.
