Tech: Mark Cavendish's Specialized S-Works Venge

Mark Cavendish (Etixx-QuickStep) has begun his 2015 season on a Specialized Venge bike with personalised colours. He used the bike at the recent Tour de San Luis where he won the final stage.

The bike is a standard team-issue Specialized Venge but matches Cavendish's personal brand Cvndsh. Most of the frame is white, with green forks and a green seat tube and chainstays. 

The bike is equipped with FSA and Shimano Dura Ace Di2 components, Specialized Roval wheels and a Specialized saddle.

Cavendish is due to lead the Etixx-QuickStep team at next week's Dubai Tour (February 4-7).
