Transition Comp


2008 Specialized Transition Comp

With its impressive aerodynamic features, Specialized's Transition Comp makes short work of every ride. The latest incarnation of Specialized's Transition line utilizes the revolutionary FACT 7R N'Aero carbon frame that's manipulated for the ultimate aero advantage, all the way from the airfoil down tube to the rear-wheel cutout to the trick hidden brakes to the wind-cheating, aero carbon fork. Plus, this sweet machine's Mavic Aksium wheelset rolls effortlessly while Shimano provides a mix of their sweet Ultegra and 105 components for top-notch shifting and reliability.

Features and Information

  • Developed in conjunction with triathlon legend Peter Reid and Team Quick-Step's World Champions Paolo Bettini and Tom Boonen, Transition frames feature triathlon/time trial-specific geometry. The head-tube angle has been optimized for stability at speed. A steep seat tube and short head tube facilitate a forward, aero position. And, the short chainstays maximize power output.
