When it comes to creating the world's fastest road bike, it isn't enough to tweak a frame's shape and rely on existing technology. Instead, the Venge was birthed from years of development and testing in Specialized's own "Win Tunnel". They used it develop the individual parts, ensuring that they work together to form an aerodynamic advantage. This meant shaping the frame, seatpost, brakes, and Aerofly handlebars to be faster than the sum of their parts.

It took more than four years to create the S-Works Venge, and the result is the fastest bike Specialized has ever made. Getting there took dedicating themselves to redefining the shape, structure, and theory of speed, which led them to building their own "Win Tunnel" during its development. They exhausted engineers and aerodynamicists as they tested hundreds of prototypes. The payoff, however, is that every element of the bike is painstakingly constructed to be faster. The zero-drag brakes, the Aerofly ViAS cockpit, and the Rider-First Engineered™ frameset—they all work in harmony to ensure that the Venge is not only the fastest road bike in the world, but also the best handling, best feeling bike on the road.
