S.Works & Mc Laren’s Super creation : Venge

by Arpit R

Mc Laren has teamed up with US bicycle manufacturer Specialized to create an aerodynamic road bike called the Venge.

The racing road bicycle has been designed by Chris D’Aluisio and features an aerodynamic frame built entirely out of Carbon Fibre(material used to build F1 cars & other high performance Automotive vehicles ).

The launch took place at the Formula One team’s HQ, two days ahead of Milan-San Remo, where Mark Cavendish will ride the bike for the first time in competition.

The frame weighs only 950g, while the complete module (frame, fork, seatpost and crankset) tips the scales at 2.07 kg. Additionally, the model benefits from an electronic gearshift.

“We can optimise a bike to levels that have never been achieved before,” said Mc Laren Applied Technologies’ design director Duncan Bradley.

The bike will be available from about $9,000 later this year .
