Super aero, wonderfully light and pro-sprinter-worthy stiff – Specialized absolutely delivers with their Venge Expert Mid Compact. Boasting the awesome ride characteristics of the Tarmac, its FACT 11r-carbon frame 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 Shimano Ultegra group that dishes out flawless shifting and unmatched braking. Plus, Roval Rapide wheels and a svelte carbon Specialized seatpost hide from the wind to give you the ultimate aero-advantage.
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.
