SPECIALIZED SHIV PRO SRAM RED
Triathletes have fantasized about bikes built specifically for triathlon, not road time trialing, for years and several are finally available. In addition to the Shiv’s age-group-friendly geometry, Specialized’s first true triathlon bike has two fast and functional features that are banned in road cycling. Its stunningly deep tubes are more aerodynamic than Specialized’s UCI-legal designs, and it boasts a refillable hydration bladder concealed in the frame. These tri-specific designs combined with other practical features make the Shiv a leader in the drive into the new era of fast and functional tri bikes. Specialized.com
