2018 Shiv Expert

No matter the length of triathlon, you'll be spending at least half of your race on the bike. And this means that it's the segment with the most opportunity for time savings. Lucky for you, this is where the Shiv Expert comes in.

Its full FACT 10r carbon frame was developed in our very own Win Tunnel, and it's not only been aerodynamically optimized for straight-line speed, but it also features airfoils that have been optimized 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 optimize 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 Expert comes spec'd with an Ultegra 8000 groupset and durable, smooth-rolling DT R460 wheels.

She's a looker!

Although I've been the biggest adopter of disc brakes on all my bikes i just can't justify the cost on a TT bike. Especially when most triathlon courses are closed courses and relatively flat. This is my third shiv and i can't think of a faster bang for your buck machine on the market? The fit options are incredible the ultra components are flawless and the integrated fuselage and hydration make this bike a pleasure to race at any distance especially longer distances. The color way is epic as well!
