Specialized has just released its all-new Shiv platform for triathletes. The bike is an all-out effort for triathletes that completely ignores the UCI rules and represents not only the fastest bike that Specialized could think up, but the most usable one as well. It's built for speed, but also made to be super easy to build, take apart, travel with, and adjust. Read on for my full report and impressions of this gnarly machine.
Specialized wanted to show exactly how serious they are about the triathlon market, and brought their entire complement of sponsored triathletes to the launch, including powerhouse Rasmus Henning and two-time World Champion Chris McCormack. And that's ITU star Simon Whitfield in the background.
