Venge Elite - 2018
When we say that "aero is everything," we mean it. That's because we believe that advanced aerodynamics provide an advantage that'll enhance any ride. And likewise, we believe that every rider should have access to the fruits of our labor in the Win Tunnel, which is why we created the Venge Elite.
It has a superlative FACT 10r carbon construction, an aero-driven frame, a reliable Shimano 105 11-speed groupset, and sturdy DT 460 wheels that amplify the overall performance of this race rig. If you're looking for an all-around performer that's also aerodynamic, look no further than the Venge Elite.
- The FACT 10r frame design was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, computational fluid dynamics, 3D printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback—and resulted in a slippery design.
- The FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, and slices through the wind.
- The Praxis Zayante crankset reliably shifts between chainrings and keeps overall weight down.
