Specialized announces limited-edition Sagan Collection S-Works Venge

by James Huang


Hot on the heels of the recently revamped S-Works Venge aero road bike, Specialized has announced a special-edition Sagan Collection version for those who want to go a little faster, but also want to be noticed in the process.

Like the previous Sagan Collection family of bikes, this new version is once again awash in glitter-infused paint. But this time around, Specialized has opted for a slightly less ostentatious blue hue instead of gold. Interested buyers aren’t limited to just the S-Works Venge, either. As before, Specialized will also offer the limited-edition finish on the Tarmac SL6 and a few other select accessories.

No one buying a Sagan Collection bike should expect any extra performance, of course — and in fact, given that paint is surprisingly heavy, each of the machines in the collection likely weighs a bit more than its inline equivalent (and in case you’re wondering, Sagan’s S-Works Venge weighs 7.69kg as pictured here). But hey, there’s nothing wrong with just wanting to look good, right?

More information on the new S-Works Venge can be found here (along with CyclingTips senior editor Caley Fretz’s first impressions), and you can find more details on the Sagan Collection at specialized.com.
