We developed the fastest bike Kona’s ever seen, but we didn’t spend half a decade focused on just the traditional idea of fast. We wanted to make the most complete triathlon bike ever made. One with a tremendous amount of storage, the perfect fit, easy travel features, and of course, a destiny of setting Kona course records. This is the new shape of speed. This is the S-Works Shiv Disc.
A triathlon bike is only as fast as its integration. Taped-on gels, frame bottles, flat kits—in the eyes of drag, they turn a fast bike into a beach cruiser. The 2011 Shiv, however, was the first to integrate storage without adding drag. And with the Shiv Disc, we’ve created storage and fit features that house more fuel while actually making you faster.
The first half of the bike is hectic. Getting your legs working, establishing position, properly fueling—it’s stressful. Our athletes requested a design with enough on-board fuel to fly right by aid stations for the first half of the bike, so that’s what we did. Stay focused on the race, establish position, and use the nutrition that works for you.
The four available Shiv sizes have been based upon thousands of Retül Fit data points, ensuring there’s a size that’s perfect for you. Our Shiv Finder tool makes it easy to determine your size based on your current position, so getting your most powerful aerodynamic position is easily achievable.
