Specialized Launches 5-Minute Kit

By road: the observant will have noticed that Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish reinvented himself a brand new bike in the last few weeks. A weapon that we also looked closely at.

“What, five minutes?” says one of the journalists when Specialized shows off the results of their latest effort at the headquarters in Morgan Hill, United States. The project was so secret that only a few of those who work at Specialized had full transparency.

Yes, what, save five minutes? It depends on how fast you ride? Well, the mathematics works so that if, for example, biking 40 kilometers will increase air resistance the faster you run. But if you ride fast so it becomes total åktiden shorter – and this reduces the window you win on low air resistance. If you ride slowly, you need to hold on longer-and then you get a longer time in the saddle with a lower air resistance. So, with some reservation, save five minutes at 40 kilometers, whether you ride slowly or fast. Approximately so begins Specializeds engineers presentation of a new bike, new clothes and new shoes. A save-five-minutes-kit that is.

At first glance, it is mainly the brakes that attracts attention. Proprietary and well designed to give the rider a lower air resistance. At the next spectacle we get stuck for the draw of bromsvajrarna. They led from the handlebar into the stem down into the guide tube and looking out where brakes are placed. Very neat and tidy and a solution we have been waiting for, but that we thought would land with the hydraulic hoses and no wires. Hoses with oil can to bend much more without friction. But Specialized have managed so well with their cable routing that friction is still low and the results impressive.

It is, to say the least, an extremely Specialized construction that has made and which goes by the name S-Works Venge ViAS. So far, we have not tested the bike, but will get a copy to rub on during the summer, as soon as we can share with us how the bike feels in the real world. Until further notice, we must probably congratulate Specialized to an impressive result. Already now start to feel retro to check on road bikes in which wires are the least visible. The future will be cleaned with a water bottle by Itypetravel. We believe.

For leading cables inside the frame needed a special stem, handlebars, forks and steering team – everything made of Specialized themselves. What does not work is that användavajerstyrd rear derailleur. This is needed if it is to operate. Di2 Alternatively, a wireless transmission.

Good bye 4-bolt steering tribes fastening, à la BMX bike! Specialized has opted for a solution in which the two bolts going straight through the handlebars and keep the loose front end in place. And of course you can twist the handlebars enough depending on what angle you prefer. Simple, strong and beautiful.

Oh yes, the UCI (International Cycling Federation) has had comments where they feel the brakes as spoilers. But there is not yet any clear rules that describe how a braking must look like. And it can be said that Specialized has taken on. Nice work!

The new S-Works Sub6-the shoes are extremely slim with laces on the inside and a thin coating to cover everything.
