Gallery: Jai Hindley's custom pink Specialized S-Works Tarmac
A close-up look at the Giro d'Italia winner's bike
Jai Hindley emerged victorious this year from a cagey and interesting edition of the Giro d'Italia. In the end, his winning margin was just over one minute ahead of Richard Carapaz from the Ineos Grenadiers. Hindley made his decisive move on the penultimate stage of the race, launching a stinging attack up the Passo Fedaia which left Carapaz unable to respond. We got a closer look the custom S-Works Tarmac made for the Australian following his GC win.
Hindley didn't actually race on his pink S-Works road bike as the final stage of the race was an individual time trial around the streets of Verona. Still, Specialized provided him with his maglia rosa whip to roll around on as he basked in glory once the race was over. Sprayed black at the front and fading in to the classic Giro pink, the bike stands out but remains understated and classy.
The bike featured new Roval Alpinist II tubeless wheels.
Hindley's bike had the Shimano Dura-Ace 9200 12-speed but the older iteration of power meter at the front.
The bike was equipped with a unique looking Pro stem which was slammed low, and Hindley's Wahoo head unit was wrapped in pink to match the rest of the bike. He also had matching Supercaz bar tape.
Hindley looked to be riding the Specialized S-Works Phenom saddle, a lightweight seat with a long and thin nose.Number 66 will likely always hold a special place in the Bora-Hansgrohe rider's heart after this year's Giro d'Italia.While he didn't get to race aboard his rosa bike, it will serve as a perfect souvenir from the Australian rider's biggest victory in his career so far.
