SPECIALIZED - Shiv Elite
If you're looking for the perfect bike to tackle you first triathlon, or if you're just looking to set a new PR, the wind-cheating Shiv Elite needs to be your weapon of choice against the wind.
Its full FACT 10r carbon fiber frame was developed in our very own Win Tunnel, and it's not only been aerodynamically optimized for straight-line speed, but it also features airfoils that have been optimized to limit side force in crosswinds. A bike can only be as fast as its rider, though, which is why we also developed the Control Tower fit system that let's you optimize your stack and reach numbers in order to find your most comfortable and powerful position for your desired length.
Next up comes the Fuelselage Hydration System that houses a water bladder inside of the frame, making it virtually invisible to the wind. And to go along with your water, the Fuelcell fits plenty of food and even has room for a flat kit. The best part of the Fuelselage and Fuelcell combination is that, when packed correctly, it cleans up the frame and saves up to 75 seconds when compared to a taped-up system.
Finally, the Shiv Elite comes spec'd with a mix of Shimano 105 and Praxis components, and it's been topped off with durable, smooth-rolling DT R460 wheels.
