Overview

If you're looking for the perfect bike to tackle you first triathlon, or if you're just looking to set a new PR, the wind-cheating Shiv Elite should be your weapon of choice against the wind.

Its full FACT 10r carbon frame was developed in our very own Win Tunnel, and it's not only been aerodynamically optimised for straight-line speed, but it also features airfoils that have been optimised to limit side force in crosswinds. A bike can only be as fast as its rider, though, which is why we also developed the Control Tower fit system that let's you optimise your stack and reach numbers in order to find your most comfortable, powerful position for your desired length.

Next up comes the Fuelselage Hydration System that houses a water- bladder inside of the frame, making it virtually invisible to the wind. And to go along with your water, the Fuelcell fits plenty of food and even has room for a flat kit. The best part of the Fuelselage and Fuelcell combination is that, when packed correctly, it cleans up the frame and saves up to 75 seconds when compared to a taped-up system.

Finally, the Shiv Elite comes spec'd with a mix of Shimano 105 and Praxis components, and it's been topped off with durable, smooth-rolling DT R460 wheels.

  • The FACT 10r carbon frame is lightweight and extremely responsive. It features crosswind-optimised airfoils for enhanced aerodynamic performance, while the Control Tower Fit System and Fuelselage Integrated Hydration System provide versatile fit options and nutrition integration.
  • FACT Aero carbon fork utilises our most advanced carbon construction methods to provide precise steering and rider input, while also improving overall aerodynamics.
  • Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class, these tough Axis Elite wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.
