S-Works Venge ViAS Disc Di2 - 2018
What happens when you combine a frame with over a 1000 hours in the Win Tunnel, a fully-integrated cockpit that eliminates exposed cables, and mind-blowing braking performance? You get the S-Works Venge ViAS with Shimano Di2—the fastest bike on the road.
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.
As one of the first elements to hit the wind, we realized that most stem and bar offerings cause too much aerodynamic drag. To achieve the best solution, while also interfacing with the frame, we found that a negative 17-degree stem was the best option. Most riders aren't flexible enough to ride in such an aggressive position, though, so we designed the Aerofly bars with a positive rise that replicates your most efficient position. This resulted in a bike that has next-to-no visible cables.
No matter your skill level or experience on the bike, there’s no better way to enhance your training and racing performance than by riding with a power meter. Lucky for you, this bike includes our incredibly light and stiff, carbon fibre S-Works road cranks with dual-sided power measurement, making it the lightest (440g/172.5mm) and most accurate power meter available. The two independent strain gauge assemblies on each crankarm not only measure the total power you’re producing, but also tell you exactly how much power you’re putting out with each leg. Along with independent leg metrics, it gives you unidirectional power measurement, as well as on-board temperature compensation, resulting in the most accurate readings in any situation (+/-1%).
Of course, this disc iteration changes the game with undeniable stopping power without any penalty to the aerodynamic profile, so you get powerful, controllable braking without any sacrifice. Then there's the industry benchmark Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and CLX 64 wheels that amplify the performance of this race rig. So when it comes to sprinting to the line, into the corner, or powering through the wind, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the performance of the Venge ViAS.
- 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 S-Works Power cranks–Dual-Sided Power Meter is the lightest, most accurate power meter available. And being paired with our S-Works cranks, it looks just as good as it performs.
