The Limited-Edition S-Works Shiv Disc is built for speed. The non-UCI-legal FACT carbon frame is incredibly aerodynamic and features storage-optimised design.
This bike comes in a limited colourway (Colour Scheme: Sunset Five-O/ Gloss White) that, depending on the light, reflects a multitude of different colours. There were only 500 pieces of this eye-catching bike available, together with their accompanying custom travel cases.
Dual-sided power metre
Shiv’s carbon fibre road cranks are fitted with a dual-sided power metre claimed to provide you with the most accurate power reading (+/-1.5%) and the cockpit allows for a multitude of adjustment to suit your individual preferences.
The S-Works Shiv Disc features Hydration and Nutrition Fuelcell systems, which are neatly tucked in their down tube and a 1.5 litre capacity storage tank mounted at the back of the seat tube.
Combining functionality and aerodynamics
The new “Shape of Speed” philosophy optimises each tube shape around aerodynamics, weight, and stiffness, and this creates the opportunity for functional integration without compromising speed.
A folding cockpit
The cockpit also allows for a multitude of adjustments. It unbolts easily from the frame, and the basebar folds down parallel to the fork. This makes packing headaches a thing of the past.
Specialized Shiv Specs
The price will blow your mind and set you back at a hefty sum of S$19,500. Is it worth your money?
