July 2016 BOM: Specialized Venge ViAS

Venge ViAS on our left. Venge ViAS on our right. Everywhere we turn these days, the we’re seeing the Specialized Venge ViAS. And we’re seeing the Venge ViAS dominate.

The S-Works Venge ViAS (with Sagan’s favorite saddle) was spotted by Gearheads on the Tinkhoff team car at this year’s Tour of California. (Perhaps Sagan was doing some prep work for the Tour de France in between stage wins at the TOC.)

Closer to home, our reigning Illinois State Criterium Cat 5 Champion – and winner of the 2015 Gran Fondo Hundo fundraising grand prize – John McCormick is whipping through the North Shore on his S-Works Venge ViAS.

Born out of Specialized’s aptly named “Win Tunnel,” the Venge ViAS is the world’s fastest road bike. The rider-first engineered frame was designed simultaneously with the Venge’s seatpost, brakes and Aerofly handlebars so that each element would work together to form an aerodynamic advantage.

Ever since this new category of aero road bikes was introduced, the Venge ViAS has been a favorite of ours at Higher Gear. With the 2015 upgrades, which involved a total rebuild beginning with Specialized’s rider-first engineering, the Venge ViAS has quickly become a favorite to riders and the press. And it’s been more visible to the world as it shines on podium after podium.
