As it’s the part of the bike that hits the wind first, it’s es­sen­tial that the cock­pit cuts through the air cleanly. Added to the stan­dard troika of weight, stiff­ness and han­dling, how­ever, is a fourth con­sid­er­a­tion – ca­ble rout­ing. The new Venge ac­com­mo­dates only disc brakes and elec­tronic gears, which al­lows for a sim­pli­fied de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing process. The Aerofly II cock­pit on the new Venge is flat, which saves weight and al­lows the ca­bles to flow in straighter lines, while the grippy dim­pled sur­face on the flat top of the bar means only the drops need to be taped.
