2018 Specialized Venge Expert Disc

It's hard to beat World Tour performance at a price that doesn't necessitate taking out a second mortgage, and that's where the Venge Expert Disc lands. It features many of the same qualities as its wicked-fast siblings, like a Rider-First Engineered frame and incredible stopping power with disc brakes, just with a "traditional" cockpit.

In our Win Tunnel, every tube, trailing edge, and design cue was made for speed. It's also Rider-First Engineered to ensure that every frame size experiences uniform performance. Front-end stiffness, meanwhile, was increased by 30% over the Tarmac SL5.

For this iteration of the Venge, however, we spec'd it with a traditional stem and our S-Works Aerofly handlebars. And while there is a slight loss in aerodynamics with this configuration, it makes set-up and changes to the overall fit far easier than with the ViAS system. Of course, this disc version of the Venge also changes the game with undeniable stopping power without any penalty to the aerodynamic profile, so you get powerful hydraulic disc braking without any sacrifices.

Then there's Shimano Ultegra groupset that delivers reliable performance and the Roval SLX 24 rims that are laced to DT Swiss 350 hubs. They're light enough to race on, yet durable enough for everyday training. So when it comes to speed at value, nothing outperforms the Venge Expert Disc.

- The Rider-First Engineered, FACT 11r frame design has made the Venge the stiffest, most aerodynamic bike that we’ve ever created. Every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, computational fluid dynamics, 3D printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback. And ultimately, this resulted in the fastest bike we’ve ever made.

- Designed in our Win Tunnel, the fork features a top-end S-Works FACT 11r carbon construction that helps to cut through air like a hot knife through butter.

- The Roval SLX 24 rims, laced to DT Swiss hubs, are lightweight and durable alloy wheels that work well for both training and racing.
