Specialized 21 Shiv Sport


The Shiv was designed with one goal in mind—making you faster over the bike leg of your race. Of course, we wanted to do this without setting you back six months' rent. So, whether you're looking to go after your first triathlon or set a fresh PR, you can ride with the confidence that your Shiv is up to the task.



The Shiv Sport is built up with Shimano 105 components, and it's been topped off with durable, smooth-rolling DT R460 wheels and a Sitero Comp saddle.

  • A full FACT 10r carbon fiber frame was developed in our very own Win Tunnel, and it's not only been aerodynamically optimized for straight-line speed, but it also features airfoils that have been optimized to limit side force in crosswinds.
  • A bike can only be as fast as its rider, which is why we developed the Control Tower fit system that let's you optimize your stack and reach numbers in order to find your most comfortable and powerful position for your desired length.
  • The Fuselage Hydration System houses a water bladder inside of the frame, making it virtually invisible to the wind. And to go along with your water, the Fuelcell fits plenty of food and even has room for a flat kit. The best part of the Fuselage and Fuelcell combination is that, when packed correctly, it cleans up the frame and saves up to 75 seconds when compared to a taped-up system. For this model Shiv, the Fuelselage and Fuelcell are sold separately.
