The Tarmac is indeed back and it isn't just messing around with some fancy new paint job and a few false statements about how great its' new water bottle cage screws are?! No, the Tarmac has once again set the standard for speed, performance and value for money, coming from the company that has for years lead the world in research and has enough world, classic and tour titles to put most others to shame. To begin with, the competition edition of the Tarmac features a revised Fact 9r carbon fibre frame that comes with fully integrated cable routing as well as ensuring everyone who's not riding the Tour de France can afford carbon that is as stiff, as it is lightweight and fun to ride. Shimano's Ultegra 8020 hydraulic disc groupset provides smooth, braking that isn't reliant on the weather conditions or road spray and 11-speed shifting which is lightweight and effortlessly switches between gears depending on your terrain. Finally, DT Swiss' R470 wheelset provides a brilliant wheelset option that can train and race efficiently and effectively.
Featuring Specialized's Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac. The FACT 9r frame is the perfect blend of value and performance.
Shimano's no-fuss Ultegra shifting with hydraulic disc brakes provides precise shifting and plenty of stopping power.
DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
