This is what happens:

You hit a small rock, fly through the air and get to ride in an ambulance.
Ah, but will the ambulance go faster than 45 MPH? :o) -NMTig

Too bad--it looks cute, but I hit 50 often enough to want to see it! Perhaps it wraps and keeps going.

The Really Big News is that the top model in this new series has--ta da! Wireless Cadence!! No more wires all over the place when you want to catch your RPMs...

Why would anyone put Specialized stuff on their bike? Their stuff is mostly garbage farmed out to low bid third world operations with zero quality control. Wouldn't it be reasonable to think that if their products were any good they'd have some longevity. Honestly, there stuff is for the cafe crowd. Sure they sponsor some serious racers, but it's the get paid to use the stuff - otherwise they wouldn't. Wireless cadence - what will they think of next - given that you can already have that? I can't think of any Specialized products that I've used that haven't failed: tires, tubes, gloves, tire levers, pump.
Above 45mph look at the road not 'puter -then check max speed nmSprocket Rocket
