S-Works Venge Frameset
Surprisingly, our quest for the perfect tube shapes didn't start in the Win Tunnel. It started with a new piece of technology, the FreeFoil Shape Library. Our engineers wrote an optimization algorithm and utilized a supercomputer (yes, we used an actual supercomputer) to help create new airfoil shapes with different weights, surface areas, and structural targets. Armed with this library of shapes, all with different aspect ratios, we could plug them into the different parts of the bike and test a variety of configurations to determine the fastest setup in the Win Tunnel.
Compared to the fastest aero road bike to date (the Venge ViAS), and many others in the space that we won't name here, the new Venge is eight seconds faster over 40km at zero degrees of yaw. It's also faster out on the road in all wind conditions—not just in the tunnel. *All bikes were tested with the same fit dimensions, and with the following components—Roval CLX 64 wheels, Turbo Cotton 26mm tires, Shimano's newest Di2 groupset, two water bottles, an S-Works Power saddle, and their respective spec'd cockpits.
And while it's cool that the new Venge is more aero, there are other factors to fast. Striking the perfect combination of weight and aerodynamics plays a crucial role in a bike's overall performance. A bike that's strictly aero will feel great on the flats, but it'll suffer on the climbs and in quick accelerations. A bike that's strictly lightweight, however, will suffer on everything but the steepest climbs. So, not only did we make the Venge more aero than the ViAS, but we also took 460 grams out of the module weight. This means we saved 240g in the frame, 25g in the fork, 107g in the cockpit, 25g in the seatpost, and 63g in small parts. So no matter the course, the Venge will prove to be the fastest option when you need to go up, down, and all around.
Much of this weight savings comes from our Rider-First Engineered™ tubes. We implemented much of the discovery from the new Tarmac's development, like different layup schedules and materials, and this culminated in a Venge that's not only lighter, but one that also has a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio and 40% more compliance than the ViAS—no matter the frame size. And while you can't always see these changes, all it takes is one ride to feel the quick accelerations and the bump-eating compliance.
Of course, we didn't stop there. The geometry got an update, and now, it's based on over 40,000 Retül data points, as well as professional rider input. This enabled us to implement a Performance Road Geometry that perfectly combines a responsive front-end with a short wheelbase, and this delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.
Last, but certainly not least, the Venge houses some exciting new features. The new cockpit, developed in partnership with our World Tour teams, features a stem with a higher stiffness than anything we've ever tested, new bars that are faster, lighter, stiffer, and feature a textured pattern on the tops for extra grip and control. Next up is tire clearance—it has no problem clearing 32mm-wide tires. And, finally, we've put our Shimano A-Junction in the seatpost, making it easy to charge, check battery levels, and for team mechanics to make adjustments.
- The Rider-First Engineered™, FACT 11r frame not only makes the Venge the most aerodynamic road bike we’ve ever created, but it's also lightweight and stiff in all the right places. Every tube shape, trailing edge, and design cue was influenced by hours of testing in our Win Tunnel, CFD, 3D-printed prototypes, and real-world rider feedback. Ultimately, this resulted in the fastest road bike we’ve ever made.
- Designed in our Win Tunnel, the fork features a top-end, S-Works FACT 11r carbon construction that helps to cut through air like a hot knife through butter.
- A legendary CeramicSpeed bottom bracket ensures that you're making every precious last watt count.
令人驚訝的是，我們對完美管形的追求並非始於Win Tunnel，這開始於一個全新的科技，FreeFoil管型資料庫。我們的工程師設計了一套優化演算法，並使用了超級計算機（是的！我們真的用了超級計算機），以輔助打造出不同外型、重量、迎風表面的管型。有了這個管型資料庫，涵蓋了不同層面的比例資料，我們可以將不同的管型安插在自行車不同部位，並能夠測試且決定要放進什麼最「快速」的設定進入Win Tunnel風洞中實驗。
與迄今為止最快的空氣力學公路車（Venge ViAS）以及我其他這裡無法提及的他牌型號相比，新款Venge在零偏移角度下騎乘超過40公里並快上了8秒鐘。在各種風向環境的實測中也都更加快速 - 不僅是在風洞當中而已。 *所有自行車均以相同尺寸、零配件設定進行了測試：Roval CLX 64輪組、Turbo Cotton 26mm外胎、Shimano全新Di2套件、兩個水壺、S-Works Power座墊以及各品牌標準座艙。
減輕的重量大部分來自我們管材的騎士優先技術™。我們在New Tarmac的開發過程中有許多收穫，例如採用了不同疊層、材料，最終讓Venge不僅重量更輕，而且剛性重量比也更高，相較於ViAS提升40％的舒適性 - 無論車架尺寸！雖然您不一定能完全看到這些變化，但只需要騎一趟就能感受到暢快的加速與衝擊時的舒適感。
最後但也是非常重要的，Venge具有一些令人興奮的新面貌。與我們的世巡賽團隊合作開發的全新座艙設計，龍頭比我們過往所研發的樣式剛性更高。把手有著更快表現，且重量更輕、更扎實，並且在表面特殊的紋理設計，以增加抓握止滑和控制表現。次之是輪胎的相容性 - 要裝下32mm的胎寬完全沒有問題。最後，我們將Shimano Junction放到了座管上，可以輕鬆充電、檢查電池電量、並讓隊職員更方便進行調整。
- 騎士優先技術™下的FACT 11r車架不僅使Venge成為我們創造過的最具空力性能的公路車，而且在任何部分都輕巧而堅固。每種管形、設計都會接受Win Tunnel、CFD、3D模擬以及實際騎士回饋，經過無數測試。
- 最終這創造出了我們有史以來最快的公路自行車。從Win Tunnel中設計的前叉成果，採用高階S-Works FACT 11r碳纖維結構，使其能夠如一把炙熱利刃切開奶油般的輕鬆劃開空氣
- 指標性CeramicSpeed BB可確保您每一瓦都真實傳輸。
