Specialized wanted to create a new kind of road bike and thus also took a completely different approach. After forming a partnership with Fomula 1 racing team McLaren in 2009, the two present the S-Works + McLaren Venge bike in 2011. The outcome is a bike of less than 950 grams, applying fabrics from the Formula 1 racing car, making it both super light, yet stiff. The entire frame is produced of carbon to achieve the light/strength combination. After two years of development, the bike has made its debut this month at the Milan San Remo race with select riders.
