Specialized Venge Pro: First Look
The new Venge needs no introduction. Having picked up multiple stage wins by both Fernando Gaviria and Peter Sagan and the green jersey at the recent Tour de France, there’s no doubt that this is bike is a force to be reckoned with.
Unfortunately for mere mortals like us, we are often caught in a balancing act between the purchasing the best equipment currently available and budget constraints. That is where the Venge Pro comes in.
Boasting the exact same frame as the S-Works and its excellent aerodynamic and ride qualities, the Venge Pro makes it more affordable for everyone to get a piece of the action without having to fork out a fortune.
The disc – only Venge Pro offers 2 new paint schemes, a purple frame with black ‘Specialized’ decals, and a black frame with cool rainbow ‘Specialized’ decals on it.
Gone are the ceramic bearings, power meter, and Turbo Cotton 320 TPI 26mm tires, but the Pro version still retains high-quality components like its Praxis bottom bracket, Shimano Ultegra HollowTech 2 crankset, and S-Works Turbo 120 TPI 26mm tires.
Spec’d in Ultegra Di2 and Specialized’s non–ceramic 50mm carbon clinchers, the Venge Pro is no slouch and is still a very capable race bike that will no doubt bring a smile to your face.
And while we are it, the S–Works model gains a new colour scheme – yellow on grey. Yummy.
