  • The FACT carbon fork is light, stiff and compliant with a tapered steerer and 12K weave construction
  • Specialized Ergo aluminum handlebar is stiff, tough and light for serious performance
  • Body Geometry Riva Road saddle combines lightweight hollow Cr-Mo rails and generous padding for all-day performance and comfort
  • Specialized Comp carbon seatpost is super light and stiff for max power transfer in the saddle
