Super aero, wonderfully light and pro-sprinter-worthy stiff; Specialized absolutely delivers with their Venge Pro. Boasting the awesome ride characteristics of the Tarmac, its FACT 10r-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 electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 group that dishes out flawless shifting and unmatched braking, slippery Roval Rapide wheels and a svelte carbon Specialized seatpost.

I have used this bike in about 8 century rides already and it's awesome, always reliable! Ultegra Di2 works well, i only had to charge it every 6 months, so I've done it only twice. This bike is fast on both uphills and downhills. Handling is comfortable and i'm planning to do a double century with it!
This configuration of the Venge is the perfect balance of pro-grade performance that makes sense on an amateur's pocketbook. Yes it's a killer and I am enjoying making new attacks with it daily on the team rides that I never could do before. However, it is also shockingly comfortable and easy to ride. Of special note, the setup of the front sprocket is perfect. It is aggressive enough to attack but 100% forgiving when you crack and need to drop into a desperate gear and limp it home. I love this bike and look forward to the new tricks it reveals to me on each ride.
