We got a chance to grab some photos of the new Specialized S-WORKS Shiv of two-time XTERRA World Champion and two-time IRONMAN 70.3 Champion Bradley Weiss. When asked about how he feels about IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder on Saturday, he responded, "I'm going to try to not win by too much." Without further adieu, here's the new bike.
When the sun catches this bike, it's a thing of beauty.
Weiss is running the Roval 321 disc on his new bike. Of course, like all of the new Shiv's, this one is the disc brake edition.
Weiss opts for the Wahoo Bolt computer, mounted to his right aerobar extension.
He opts for a very thin set of tape on the base bar, and stopping power is provided by SRAM.
SRAM 1X is the name of the game for Weiss. It's a 12 speed set-up with a 52t chainring, and a 10-33 cassette.
Wahoo now owns Speedplay. Weiss opts for the Aero pedal.
Weiss uses SRAM Red throughout the bike. Which, well, when your bike is this red...you probably *should* go for SRAM Red, too.
At Boulder, Weiss will run a Roval CLX 50 Disc for his front wheel.
Weiss is a bit of an outlier when it comes to his saddle choice: it's a more traditionally shaped Fizik Vento Argo R1 with carbon rails for him.
The point-of-view for Bradley on race day.
To complete the bike, Weiss will be using 26mm Specialized Turbo Cottons.
