Regardless of the distance, half of your triathlon is going to be spent in the saddle, making it your biggest opportunity to save time. Luckily, it just so happens that that’s what the Specialized Shiv Expert is designed to do.

We used our very own Wind Tunnel to develop the Shiv, building the aero-optimised frame with full FACT 10r carbon fibre. It’s not only been built for that pure unadulterated speed in a straight line, we’ve also included aerofoils that limit side forces in crosswinds.

However a bike is only as fast as the rider that’s powering it, and that’s why we’ve designed the Control Tower fit system, so you can adjust and optimise reach as well as stack to find the fastest, most comfortable and powerful position for your desired length.

Another neat little trick we’ve included to keep you fast is our Fuselage Hydration System, hiding a water bladder away inside the frame so it’s almost completely protected from the wind. Complementing this nicely is the Fuelcell, which can hold onto your puncture repair kit as well as plenty of food. This means that when packed up correctly, the cleaner lines along the frame mean you can find up to 75 seconds vs a taped up system.

Lastly, the Shiv Expert comes with velvet-smooth and durable DT R460 wheels and an Ultegra 8000 groupset.

  • The FACT 10r carbon frame is lightweight and extremely responsive. It features crosswind-optimized airfoils for enhanced aerodynamic performance, while the Control Tower Fit System and Fuelselage Integrated Hydration System provide versatile fit options and nutrition integration.
  • FACT Aero carbon fork utilizes our most advanced carbon construction methods to provide precise steering and rider input, while also improving overall aerodynamics.
  • Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class, these tough Axis Elite wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.
