Overview

The bike that carried Saxo Bank's Fabian Cancellara to a prologue win at this year's Tour of California is none other than the wind tunnel engineered Transition®. The competitive leader in aerodynamics and stiffness, the Transition gets its Autobahn speed from proprietary features like an incredibly slippery Specialized FACT carbon chassis (aluminum version also available), FACT integrated crankset, completely integrated brakes and a two-position Transition carbon seatpost.
  • Aerodynamic FACT carbon monocoque fork hides from the wind for precision steering
  • Rival road saddle uses a Body Geometry V-groove for pressure relief and Cr-Mo rails to balance light weight and durability
  • A1 alloy, smooth-welded frame with N'Aero tube shaping and optimal stiffness for wind-slicing performance
  • Profile T2+ aerobar features S-Bend extensions to allow more aggressive positioning
