When 3-time Ironman World Champion Craig Alexander went to the A2 Wind Tunnel recently we had the opportunity to look closer at his Specialized S-Works Shiv Tri with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 components.
Crowie's Shiv is locked and loaded.

The Saltstick dispensers are nicely hidden, and the Garmin mount in the background is ready for the head unit.
The Specialized Fuelselage is hidden underneath this port.
Shimano Dura-Ace brake levers and a tiny bit of Fizik bar tape.
Shimano Dura-Ace cranks with an SRM power meter and Shimano pedals.
Yes, Crowie does ride with 167.5 cranks.

The XLab Gorilla cage is mounted high and up under the saddle.
This prototype disc is obviously a Hed Stinger Disc.
Specialized Turbo tires front and back, and a Shimano Dura-Ace C50 wheel up front.
This isn't a standard C50 wheel. It appears that Shimano is working on a wider version, as this one is certainly wider than the others.
Just in case anyone had a doubt.
