When you want to take your times to new heights, the Specialized Shiv Elite Triathlon Bike 2017 is a great choice. Fully developed in the Win-Tunnel, this bike has been optimised to cut through the air like a hot knife through butter. Its FACT 10r carbon frame is incredibly lightweight, whilst the Shimano 105, 5800 11-speed drivetrain provides all the gearing you need to power through the wind.

Specialized Shiv Elite Triathlon Bike 2017
As the first step into the Specialized Shiv range, the Specialized Shiv Elite Triathlon Bike 2017 hosts all the same aerodynamic enhancements as the top level Shiv, so you can compete on same level. Everything about the Shiv Elite has been optimised to bring you the most aerodynamic and efficient frame possible, from an oversized bottom bracket to enhance stiffness, all the way through to the crosswind-optimised airfoils that slice through crosswinds.
As one of Specialized’s top-level carbon layups, the FACT 10r carbon frame is ultimately lightweight and extremely efficient - mainly due to its oversized bottom bracket and tube shaping that slices through the wind like a hot knife through butter. The frame features optimised airfoils that enhance aerodynamic performance when battling against crosswinds, and when you’re stretched out in the aero position you won’t have to worry about reaching to find your water bottle or nutrition. It's all right there in front of you thanks to the Control Tower Fit System and Fuelselage Integrated Hydration System which offers the most versatile nutrition integration on the market.
Utilising a blade like construction, Specialized’s FACT Aero carbon fork follows suit with the frame, producing great aerodynamic performance for a more efficient ride. The stiffness and rigidity of the fork also provides precise steering and rider input, even when you’re stretched out gunning against the wind.
Shimano’s 105 5800, 11-speed gearing is a great choice for the Shiv Elite, and it gives all the smooth-shifting, alongside a wide range of gearing, you need to get your ride where it needs to be. This drivetrain is incredibly reliable, whilst remaining lightweight - and it even boasts great strength when you’re putting down the power in the big gears.
Specialized Aero, side pull brakes are specifically designed to remain minimal in aerodynamic drag by hiding from the wind. The front brake is smaller than other brake calipers, this has been achieved without affecting any of the braking power, giving a more efficient ride with minimal drag.
Specialized Axis Elite wheels are significantly lighter than other wheels around this price point, giving you an even greater performance by further cutting weight. These wheels are smooth rolling and increase handling due to their shallow depth, making them ideal for TT courses with long, lung busting hills and technical corners.
- The Specialized FACT 10r carbon frame is lightweight and extremely responsive. It features crosswind-optimised airfoils for enhanced aerodynamic performance, while the Control Tower Fit System and Fuelselage Integrated Hydration System provide versatile fit options and nutrition integration
- A Specialized FACT Aero carbon fork utilises Specialized’s most advanced carbon construction methods to provide precise steering and rider input, while also improving overall aerodynamics
