Specialized Shiv Expert
No matter the length of triathlon, you'll be spending at least
half of your race on the bike. And this means that it's the segment
with the most opportunity for time savings. Lucky for you, this is
where the Shiv Expert comes in.
Its full FACT 10r carbon frame was developed in our very own Win
Tunnel, and it's not only been aerodynamically optimized for
straight-line speed, but it also features airfoils that have been
optimized to limit side force in crosswinds. A bike can only be as
fast as its rider, though, which is why we also developed the
Control Tower fit system that let's you optimize your stack and
reach numbers in order to find your most comfortable, powerful
position for your desired length.
Next up comes the Fuelselage Hydration System that houses a
water-bladder inside of the frame, making it virtually invisible to
the wind. And to go along with your water, the Fuelcell fits plenty
of food and even has room for a flat kit. The best part of the
Fuelselage and Fuelcell combination is that, when packed correctly,
it cleans up the frame and saves up to 75 seconds when compared to
a taped-up system.
Finally, the Shiv Expert comes spec'd with an Ultegra 8000
groupset and durable, smooth-rolling DT R460 wheels.
