Shortly after winning his second Worlds title, Peter Sagan is almost ready to jump aboard his S-Works representing the World Champion’s colors.
It was not until the first training camps with his new Bora–hansgrohe team that the Slovakian received his newly painted S-Works Venge for the 2017 season.
A first sample has been shown him in November and, after having made a few minor adjustments based on Sagan’s requirements, his 2017 season’s ally took shape.
“Once again, Specialized shows you can combine great looks and performance. The fastest bike in the peloton now has dazzling colors. I look forward to riding it in the new season with BORA-hansgrohe,” declared Peter Sagan.
“I wanted to create a more mature looking bike to match Sagan’s growth as an athlete and double world champion,” said Ron Jones, lead road designer at Specialized. “I did some research on some new prismatic paints and found a product that did exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to have a ton of depth to the paint, with obvious references to the rainbow jersey but without explicitly adding stripes or patterns.” The rainbow is reflected on the whole frame in a non-static way.
Looking forward to seeing it stand out inside the peloton.
