No rules, just speed—the Shiv Disc Expert is the new benchmark for fast. The Shiv is not only fast, but of course, it continues our design lineage of Aero, Fuel, Fit with plenty of storage and adjustability. If you want to cut the wind, the Shiv Disc needs to be your bike for this season.
Superlatively aerodynamic. Win Tunnel Engineered. Crosswind-optimized. Not even close to UCI-legal. It might sound like good marketing, but each of these are the core design tenets that went into the Shiv Disc. And while aerodynamics was our number one design priority, we still put a large focus on weight, stiffness, and ride quality to ensure that it’s the best riding and handling triathlon bike you've thrown a leg over.
What was that about storage? Just like with the original Shiv, the Shiv Disc features both Hydration and Nutrition Fuelcell storage options, but we didn’t simply reuse them. Instead, we designed them from the ground up. We moved the Hydration Fuelcell from inside the frame to the rear of the bike. Now, it's entirely hidden within the frame (even the hydration hose), which not only allows for more fluid capacity, but it also helps with aerodynamics. The Nutrition Fuelcell utilizes the additional volume created by the "New Shape of Speed" for the down tube, and this creates plenty of room for snacks. How many snacks? 10-12 gels, 4-5 bars, or 5-6 chews fit with ease, and it can also be removed to easily access the Shimano Di2 A-Junction Box or a flat repair kit.
We also made sure that the Shiv is plenty adjustable for you to dial-in your fit. The frame comes in four different sizes that are based on over 1,000 Retül fits with actual athletes, all to ensure that your ideal fit is achievable. Adjustability was also high on the list for the aerobars, extensions, and arm pads, so the cockpit is adjustable on nearly every access. Need more or less base bar stack? Simply loosen a single bolt on each side and tilt it up or down. The aerobars, themselves, also offer plenty of adjustability—fore, aft, and pad width, all with aggressive and relaxed positions in mind. An added bonus of this adjustability is the ease of travel. All you have to do is fold the base bar down to the fork, unbolt the cockpit, and your Shiv is ready for the bike box. We couldn't make it any easier.
Keeping in theme with "race-ready right out of the box," we've selected a spec that embodies uncompromising value. You'll get the new Roval C38 carbon wheels, Shimano Ultegra Di2, and our new Sitero Expert saddle.
- The incredibly aerodynamic, crosswind-optimized, and non-UCI-legal FACT carbon frame features all the details you’ve asked for. It’s packable, adjustable, has our Hydration and Nutrition Fuelcell systems, and it makes it easy to find your perfect fit. The new "Shape of Speed" philosophy optimizes each tube shape around aerodynamics, weight, and stiffness, and this creates the opportunity for functional integration without compromising speed.
- Shimano's Ultegra cranks, with their crisp-shifting 52/36T chainrings, offer exceptional power transfer and decrease the chances of dropped chains.
- Yep, that's right—carbon wheels on an Expert-level bike. The Roval C38 Disc carbon wheels bring performance to the masses. They're lightweight, durable, and ready for just about anything.
