Specialized Racing and the S-Works Shiv TT dominate the Time Trial World Championships

Four time trials, four gold medals. In an unprecedented display of dominance, the S-Works Shiv TT took gold in every single elite category in the race against the clock. The historical wins went deeper, though, as Specialized U-23 and Junior riders also brought home shiny new medals.

With wins coming down to minutes and fractions of a second, Specialized bikes and equipment stamped their authority as the ultimate aerodynamic weapons.

In a race that can literally be won by fractions of a second, #AEROISEVERYTHING becomes more than just a hash tag. Introduced in 2009, the Specialized Shiv TT has won every UCI ITT Men’s World Championship it has entered. Not a bad track record. The expertise extends beyond the bike. Through a comprehensive performance testing program, Specialized Racing invests countless hours dialling in fit, gathering data on bikes and equipment, and listening to rider input. Coupled with a newly constructed, cycling-specific wind tunnel and developmental partnership with McLaren, Specialized is able to offer access to technology that’s simply unavailable elsewhere in cycling. From the Specialized aero helmets worn by all the winners, to the S-Works Turbo tyres, every product is designed in tandem with our athletes to provide absolute performance when it matters most. Whether it’s by a minute or a fraction of a second, the Rainbow Jersey shows no prejudice. So on behalf of everyone at Specialized, complimenti to all of our winners in Florence on a truly dominant performance.
