The bike is the result of a nine-month collaboration with Formula One racing giants McLaren. It’ll be used in competition for the first time at Milan-San Remo this weekend by a select group of riders from Specialized-sponsored teams, including Mark Cavendish (HTC-Columbia).
McLaren had approached Specialized in March 2009 about a possible link-up between the companies. It was in July last year that Specialized took the prototype of the Venge to the carbon fibre experts of McLaren.
Specialized have conducted track testing with the Venge against their current top-line race bike, the Tarmac SL3. Claimed watts saved by the Venge range from 3W at 20km/h to a whopping 23W at 45km/h, and presumably a lot more than this at Mark Cavendish’s sprint speed of around 70km/h.
