Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) was on hand to help present the latest edition of the Sagan Collection by bike brand Specialized in Milan on Friday, showing off the bike he'll ride in Saturday’s Milan-San Remo.

The Specialized S-Works Venge is the model Sagan used in 2018, but the third edition of the Sagan Collection has new colour schemes, apparently inspired by his ‘Overexposed’ public personality in white and also his 'Underexposed' dark side.

Called Chasing Rainbows, the collection follows on from the first Sagan collection launched just before the Tour of Flanders in March 2018 and the second collection that arrived at the start of last year's Tour de France. The collection includes frames, tyres, shoes, helmets and also smaller accessories such as socks for those who want a taste of the collection but cannot afford the S-Works frames.

The collection includes the overexposed white and the darker black. Rainbow colours are subtle in the shade but stand out in the sunlight. The rainbow pearl pigment is applied to a light (white/silver) base, for Overexposed, and to a dark (black/charcoal) base for the Underexposed pieces.

Sagan has used disc brakes since the 2018 season and is apparently set to use disc brakes even in this year in Paris-Roubaix. Sagan’s number 1 bike for Milan-San Remo has black Supacaz bar tape, while his second bike has silver tape.

Sagan's Venge uses a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 groupset. The remainder of the components come from Specialized or Specialized's wheel brand, Roval.
