The Triathlon Show, Esher - Sigma Sport will have on display the bike three-time Ironman World Champion Craig Alexander rode to win the 2011 Ironman World Championships, setting a course record in the process.

The 2012 Shiv is currently in the UK as part of the ‘Best of Specialized Tour' and will be available for the public to see first-hand at the Sigma Sport stand during The Triathlon Show, 3rd – 4th March. In his first race using the Shiv, Alexander knocked 13 minutes off his previous best bike split, completing the Kona bike course in an impressive 4:24:05. He finished with an overall time of 8:03:56, a 5:15 margin over second place and shaving 12 seconds off the race record of 8:04:08 set by Luc Van Lierde in 1996.

The 2012 Specialized Shiv is a truly unique bike and is the first triathlon specific model from Specialized. It ticks all the boxes for a triathlete based on three areas: aerodynamics, hydration and an adjustable fit. The aerodynamic design has no UCI limitations and is built to take advantage of those famous Kona cross-winds. The Fuelselage hydration system is the first of its kind where the bladder sits within the frame. The frame is the most adjustable Specialized TT bike yet which allows more cockpit and saddle positions than ever before.

Drop by Sigma Sport's stand A36 for your glimpse of the winning machine.
