S-WORKS SHIV DISC 2019 IS HERE
Quote | Reply
Today is probably the launch of the new S-Works Shiv Disc 2019.

Below you can find the first pictures as well the description.
What is your opionion???








Well, I guess the paintjob is great.
The storage on the downtube is interesting and I am curious about their explanation on the sail in back.

I love it.

The thing in the back bothers me, but it looks to be removable. I think I'd be OK if it was level with the top tube such as on Trek's SC or QR's PR6, et.

The aerobar looks interesting, one picture shows it angled down while the other shows it level. I assume there's also the ability to tilt it up.

Take a closer look at the picture from the front. The fork looks really interesting.
I kind of like it. My question would be if the "sail" is only for hydrtion or does it also fit other stuff...

Very first thing was “I like it, if you remove the sail” because it reminds me HUGELY of my old, flip/flop green purple GT vengeance, from ‘98, like Mark Allen’s bike from 96.
Not sure about the aesthetic of the twin-foil fork, but I’m sure Wilier will be pleased to say, “we did that 5 years ago”!

I'm sorry, but the hydration rear sail is hideous. I wonder will different sizes of the hydration box be available, I'm guessing frame sizes/saddle height needs will mandate it.

It's a shame, as the front end looks great, with foldable basebar and removable cockpit. Storage in downtube looks good too, hopefully will be accessible enough in practice.

I guess what we are looking at is the limited edition. The standard colour for this will be "satin white"
i guess 13k for the standard and 15k for the SE

Plotted Reach,stack of Shivs, included P3 MKII as that is indicative of where the majority of manufacturers are at



So the new bike has moved to the market norm, rather than following the high stack philosophy of Gen 1.

Jeez that thing is ugly! I'm a card-carrying Specialized fan but everything about that bike is hideous, from the tri-foil front end and beefy shoulders on the basebar to the uber-low chainstays out the back! The shonky looking in-frame storage on the downtube and tail bolted on to the back don't do much to help it aesthetically either.

But I guess that's not the point at all, it's all about how many seconds they'll claim you can save over the old Shiv and I'm sure we'll see some stats from the tunnel in due course.

So, is this a tri-specific model, or would this be UCI-legal too, given the recent changes that they made to the regulations? Assuming that hideous tail on the rear could be removed of course...

Can't be UCI legal with that fork - the Headtube/nose is too deep
seatstays too low on seattube as well - so it won't be legal with a different fork either

I thought as much.

This bike will not help in trying to improve the image-problem and credibility of triathletes amongst cyclists!

How many triathletes do you know that care about their image among cyclists?

You mean the millions of MAMILs who can't ride without stopping for a coffee, and average 27kph in a group ride? Or Pros?

What the other guy said about who cares :-)

well that's certainly an improvement from a fit perspective for the smaller sizes but for the larger sizes I'd worry about running out of reach.

Not impressed by the first impression. It looks like they “improved” upon the Wiler Twin Blade and $13-$15k price tag...🤪. It better be fast because it’s not winning any beauty contests. That luggage in the back also looks like a late addition or after thought.
