Etixx-Quick Step S-Works SHIV TT

It cheats the wind, yet breaks no laws. In fact, the Shiv TT has nothing but respect for the law, particularly when it comes to aerodynamics. The incredibly stiff S-Works FACT 11r frame boasts a fully integrated cockpit and aero tube shaping, while the S-Works FACT carbon fork features crosswind-optimised airfoils for precise steering and maximum speed. Combine that with the aggressive rider position, and you get a true stealth TT monster that's not only UCI-legal, but will have you carving corners and slicing through the wind with confidence.
