Description

We aren't satisfied with second fastest. Hell, why do you think we have our own Win Tunnel & the motto, "Aero is Everything?" We live & breathe aero, because we know that aerodynamic optimization is the best thing we can do to make you faster. & this philosophy has never been truer than with the new Venge. Being eight seconds faster than the ViAS, it's not only the most aerodynamic bike on the road, but it's also lost 460 grams. & now with SRAM RED eTAP, you're definitively looking at the new shape of speed.

Surprisingly, our quest for the perfect tube shapes didn't start in the Win Tunnel. It started with a new piece of technology, the FreeFoil Shape Library. Our engineers wrote an optimization algorithm & utilized a supercomputer (yes, we used an actual supercomputer) to help create new airfoil shapes with different weights, surface areas, & structural targets. Armed with this library of shapes, all with different aspect ratios, we could plug them into the different parts of the bike & test a variety of configurations to determine the fastest setup in the Win Tunnel.

Compared to the fastest aero road bike to date (the Venge ViAS), & many others in the space that we won't name here, the new Venge is eight seconds faster over 40km at zero degrees of yaw. It's also faster out on the road in all wind conditions—not just in the tunnel.

And while it's cool that the new Venge is more aero, there are other factors to fast. Striking the perfect combination of weight & aerodynamics plays a crucial role in a bike's overall performance. A bike that's strictly aero will feel great on the flats, but it'll suffer on the climbs & in quick accelerations. A bike that's strictly lightweight, however, will suffer on everything but the steepest climbs. So, not only did we make the Venge more aero than the ViAS, but we also took 460 grams out of the module weight. This means we saved 240g in the frame, 25g in the fork, 107g in the cockpit, 25g in the seatpost, & 63g in small parts. So no matter the course, the Venge will prove to be the fastest option when you need to go up, down, & all around.

Much of this weight savings comes from our Rider-First Engineered™ tubes. We implemented much of the discovery from the new Tarmac's development, like different layup schedules & materials, & this culminated in a Venge that's not only lighter, but one that also has a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio & 40% more compliance than the ViAS—no matter the frame size. & while you can't always see these changes, all it takes is one ride to feel the quick accelerations & the bump-eating compliance.

Of course, we didn't stop there. The geometry got an update, & now, it's based on over 40,000 Retül data points, as well as professional rider input. This enabled us to implement a Performance Road Geometry that perfectly combines a responsive front-end with a short wheelbase, & this delivers instantaneous response & optimal power transfer.

Last, but certainly not least, the Venge houses some exciting new features. The new cockpit, developed in partnership with our World Tour teams, features a stem with a higher stiffness than anything we've ever tested, new bars that are faster, lighter, stiffer, & feature a textured pattern on the tops for extra grip & control. Next up is tire clearance—it has no problem clearing 32mm-wide tires.

The S-Works Venge comes with the best component spec around, with the all-new SRAM RED eTAP AXS groupset, hydraulic disc brakes, Roval CLX 64 Disc wheels dressed with 700x26mm Turbo Cotton tires, & even an integrated power meter in the RED AXS crankset.

The Rider-First Engineered™, FACT 11r frame not only makes the Venge the most aerodynamic road bike we’ve ever created, but it's also lightweight & stiff in all the right places. Every tube shape, trailing edge, & design cue was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, CFD, 3D-printed prototypes, & real-world rider feedback. Ultimately, this resulted in the fastest road bike we’ve ever made. SRAM's RED eTAP AXS group provides exceptionally crisp shifts, smooth braking modulation, & it keeps the overall weight of the Venge at an absolute minimum. The Roval CLX 64 disc wheels aren't only the fastest wheels we've tested, but they perform extremely well in crosswinds, so they're perfect for all conditions.
