£10,999 Along­side new bikes from Quin­tana Roo and Felt, a ma­jor launch at Oc­to­ber’s Iron­man World Cham­pi­onships in Hawaii was the all-new Shiv from S-Works/ Spe­cial­ized, which was rid­den by Brit star Lucy Charles to sec­ond in the elite race. In keep­ing with wider trends in the tribike mar­ket, the new Shiv fea­tures masses of in­te­grated stor­age for nutri­tion and tools. But ar­guably the most strik­ing fea­ture of the Shiv is the fork, which ex­tends all the way from the axle to the bars, and is said to sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove the bike’s per­for­mance in cross­winds. The ini­tial lim­ited run of 500 bikes will set you back £10,999. spe­cial­ized.com
