f you're looking for an all-out, wicked-fast race bike, look no further than the Venge ViAS Pro Disc. Every facet of it was born in our Win Tunnel, so it's insanely stiff and snappy and has a 116-second advantage, compared to the Tarmac SL5, over 40km. One of its most striking features is the ViAS cockpit. As one of the first elements to hit the wind, Specialized realised that current stem and bar offerings caused too much aerodynamic drag. To achieve the best solution, while also interfacing with the frame, we found a negative 17-degree stem was the best option. Most riders aren't flexible enough to ride in such an aggressive position, though, so we designed the Aerofly bars with a positive rise that replicates your most efficient position. This resulted in a bike that has next-to-no visible cables.
No matter your skill level or experience on the bike, there’s no better way to enhance your training and racing performance than by riding with a power meter. Lucky for you, this bike features our incredibly light and stiff carbon fibre S-Works road cranks with a single-sided power measurement, resulting in one of the lightest, most accurate power meters available (450g/172.5mm). The strain gauge gives riders unidirectional power measurement, as well as on-board temperature compensation, giving you the most accurate readings in any situation (+/-1%). This disc iteration changes the game with undeniable stopping power without any penalty to the aerodynamic profile, so you get powerful hydraulic disc braking without any sacrifice. Then there's the crisp and ever-precise Shimano Dura-Ace groupset and Roval CL 64 wheels that amplify the overall performance of this race rig. So when it comes to racing, the Venge ViAS Pro refuses to be outdone.
