CeramicSpeed - A Chainless Bicycle Design
The 2018 Eurobike Expo has just wrapped up and there were a handful of super exciting concepts unveiled. One of our favorites was from CeramicSpeed with their introduction of a chainless bike that utilizes a drivechain concept often seen in motorcycles, but to date never integrated into bicycles. The CeramicSpeed 'Drive' system is still in the prototype phase but early models are extremely promising and may give way to a new genre of biking. CeramicSpeed has dubbed their innovation the world's most efficient drivetrain and the judges at the Eurobike convention agreed, naming them winner of this year's Best in Show award. We'll keep a watch on this company and be sure to post any updates to this exciting advancement in riding tech.

The cockpit contains an internally routed Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 shifting and the bars are '"faster, lighter and stiffer" than previous iterations. The Roval CLX 64 disc wheels are the fastest and most efficient in crosswinds that they've tested and with their recent savings of 460 grams on overall weight, its one of the lightest out there too. For those of you who aren't satisfied with the second fastest, the Venge can be yours for the price of a small Kia. so the new Specialized Venge had better be fast. And the California bikemaker isn’t shy about saying just that, calling its latest bike “the new shape of speed.”
