The Fastest Bike in the World: Specialized Venge ViAS
The fastest bike in the world is here: the Specialized Venge ViAS. With over 1000 hours of time spent designing, refining and testing in their very own “Win-Tunnel”, Specialized reached their goal of making the fastest bike in the world.
Helping to add some of the speed, the Venge ViAS is paired nicely with the Roval CL 64 wheelset, some of the fastest wheels ever made.
As a result of many hours testing and designing in the wind tunnel, Specialized came up with a few changes to help with aerodynamic drag. One of the major changes was to the front and rear braking systems. Specialized tested the flex of the wheel and frame to determine where the most movement occurred. With these results along with the results from the wind tunnel, Specialized was able to design their proprietary braking system and determine the best placement that would reduce both aerodynamic drag and brake rub.
Another area of aerodynamic change was made to the handle bars and stem. After many months of prototyping, designing and testing this is the combination that came of their results; the “Aerofly” cockpit. This sleek design also internally houses all the cables through the handlebars, stem and headset to their respective places; leaving nothing exposed.
