With its subtle lines, gorgeous good looks and light weight, the Specalized S-Works Venge is an aerobike without compromise. It just had to have a spot on our Editor’s Choice list for 2019. 

In my opinion, the Specialized S-Works Venge might be the best looking aero bike out there, but that could be because it looks so much like the Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc.
