Elia Viviani's Specialized S-Works Venge and Tarmac Disc — Gallery

Deceuninck-QuickStep rider wins first stage of 2019 Tour Down Under on Venge

This article first appeared on BikeRadar.

For 2019, Deceuninck-QuickStep rider and current Italian national champion Elia Viviani will have a choice between a Tarmac Disc or Venge, with the sprinting-specialist winning the opening stage of the 2019 Tour Down Under in a chaotic sprint aboard the latter. 

Both of Viviani's bikes are built around a Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 Di2 groupset that is fitted with Shimano's power meter.

Viviani opts for a set of Roval — Specialized's in-house wheel brand — CLX 50 Disc wheels on both bikes, which are fitted with 26mm-wide S-Works Turbo tubular tyres.

Specialized's own S-Works Aerofly II handlebars are seen on both bikes, with the bar tape neatly finished with a strip of fabric tape.

The stem and seatpost on the Venge are both proprietary. The seatpost on the Tarmac is also proprietary, with Viviani running a 125mm-long Pro Vibe. Sprint shifters are fitted to the drops on both bikes.
