The third generation of Specialized’s Venge aero race bike is the model’s most well-rounded. Gone is the wild shaping that defined the previous version: the new frame looks a lot simpler, weighs 460 grams less, and is compatible with any bar and stem. It’s also smoother riding, more aerodynamic (eight seconds faster over 40km at zero yaw), and has a better blend of frame and cockpit stiffness. All this, and it has disc brakes (this model is compatible only with discs and an electronic drivetrain). The result is a bike that rides like one of the better race models you can buy, and not like a stereotypical aero bike.
