2012 Specialized Venge Pro Mid-Compact

Super aero, wonderfully light and pro-sprinter-worthy stiff; Specialized absolutely delivers with their Venge Pro. Boasting the awesome ride characteristics of the Tarmac, its FACT 10r-carbon frame was tuned and tweaked in the wind tunnel for maximum aerodynamic advantage. Its blade-like tapered fork meshes seamlessly with the massive aero down tube, which in turn works with the rear wheel cutout and asymmetrical, airfoil-shaped seatstays to minimize drag. For even more speed, there's a pro-level Shimano Dura-Ace group that dishes out flawless shifting and unmatched braking, slippery Roval Rapide wheels and a svelte carbon Specialized seatpost.

Features and Information

  • View the geometry chart.
  • This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
  • This frame’s head tube is 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
  • Choose your preferred pedals (sold separately) from our wide selection.
