Specialized's Venge Elite Rival HRR gives you plenty of advantages. Its FACT carbon frame was tuned and tweaked in the wind tunnel for a maximum aerodynamic advantage. Its blade-like tapered fork meshes seamlessly with the massive aero down tube, which in turn works with the rear wheel cutout and asymmetrical, airfoil-shaped seatstays to minimize drag for another advantage. Advantages continue with a SRAM Rival group that delivers excellent shifting while SRAM hydraulic rim brakes dish out plenty of stopping power. Plus, smooth Axis wheels and a svelte carbon Specialized seatpost hide from the wind to give you one more advantage.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
This frame’s head tube and fork are 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems without adding weight.
