The brand-new Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc frameset made to take everything from the rim brake model and make it just that little bit more perfect. The Tarmac frame is simply incredible building on years of research and design from Specialized's rich heritage of technology. FACT 12 carbon fibre is the most up-to-date grade of carbon fibre on the market and sheds an incredible 200grams (20%) from the previous FACT 11 model. The stiffness and responsiveness that comes as a result of the carbon frame and D-Shaped seat-post are unmatched to anything currently available on the market. As the power gets switched on you feel a true kick, just like you would in your favourite sports car when the accelerator is pushed down. Specialized have re-designed the frame shape, with a tapered fork, D-Shaped seatpost and lower seat stays that provide the performance needed out of a bike that supplies two UCI world tour teams and the raining world road race champion Peter Sagan. Make this bike your own with a unique build from the TriStore, with all your favourite part-styles, colours and components.
It took Specialized 6 months of hard work in research and design to have re-designed the Tarmac to improve aerodynamics. The results? Well, an incredible 45 seconds saved over a 40km time-trial in comparison to other competitors bikes in the same category. A FACT 12r carbon fibre D-Shaped seat-post, dropped seat-stays and a re-designed fork provides the type of speed needed by both Specialized's world tour teams, Bora-Hansgrohe and Team Quick-Step Floors Pro Tour riders to finish at the top of the podium.
FACT 12r Carbon Fibre
This is Specialized's brand new grade of carbon fibre. Shedding almost 200 grams from the previous Fact 11r carbon fibre, FACT 12 provides an incredible level of stiffness and responsiveness that can only truly be appreciated when you ride the bike.
Rider-First Engineered™ design
Specialized have taken their geometry design to a whole new level with the new Tarmac. This technology ensures that with every frame size, you get the same incredible fit. The result of this ensures true responsiveness whether you're climbing the toughest hill climb race around, descending on technical switchbacks or making the most of the speed available on the flats.
