Tuesday TT/Triathlon Blog Post - SPECIALIZED SHIV PRO

Welcome back to our TT/Triathlon Post of the Week

Today we are featuring a top of the line Triathlon only bike - The Specialized Shiv Pro.  This bike is all bang and even has an internal hydration system so that means you have no external bottles effecting your aerodynamic position on the bike!  Read more to learn more about all of the outstanding features that Specialized built into the Shiv for your speed!

We ignored UCI rules and designed the Shiv exclusively for triathlon: with unmatched aerodynamics, the Fuelselage integrated hydration system, and a huge range of fit adjustability. The Pro Ui2 features a super light FACT IS 10r carbon frame with carbon aerobar and Shimano Ultergra Ui2 drivetrain.

  • The ultimate frame for all distances of triathlon, this Pro 10r carbon, IS FACT frame with OSBB is optimized for crosswinds and the most aerodynamic race-ready frame anywhere
  • Specialized FACT carbon monocoque fork with crosswind-optimized airfoils is stiff and stealthy for precision steering and max speed
  • Tough DT Axis 2.0 wheels roll smooth and fast; fitted with Turbo Elite tire for low rolling resistance and superior cornering traction
  • Specialized Turbo Elite 100 TPI, offers BlackBelt protection for a tough tire that still offers low rolling resistance, great traction, and light weight to allow for quick climps and fast decents
  • New, fully adjustable, Specialized Carbon Aerobar with semi-integrated aero stem adjusts to fit any rider
  • Integrated aerodynamic brakes minimize drag for aero excellence
  • Body Geometry Romin Evo Comp with hollow Cr-Mo rails with contoured profile and turned-down nose for comfort and power in aggressive position
