Specialized has brought you a brand new and improved Tarmac, faster than ever before, everywhere. Whether you're on a windy stretch or an enduring climb, a local club race or even the grand tour, the Tarmac SL6 frame has been designed to speed you up this time around. To achieve this, Specialized took to the task of investigating and then changing the aerodynamics from the SL5 to give you the SL6, now 45 seconds faster over 40 kilometres AND a whole 20% lighter! Specialized developed three different areas in order to bring you more speed; now with a D-shaped seatpost and seat tube as well as a brand new fork shape and dropped seatstays with aero tubes, the aerodynamics of the Tarmac are drastically improved. With a DT R470 Disc wheelset, you've got durable wheels for when you're out on the roads and paired with Shimano Ultegra R8070 hydraulic disc brakes you've also got smooth & sharp braking, keeping you in control on any fast descent. Specialized has also taken the time to better the geometry of the Tarmac, using help from Pro riders and Retül data points, to find the optimal power transfer balance for your riding.
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.
