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 and performance by being fast everywhere; long climbs, windy flats, Grand Tour stages, local fondos, making it one of the most complete race bikes on the market! 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 Sport 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 experience carbon that is as stiff, as it is lightweight and fun to ride. Beating their very own Tarmac SL5, Specialized has added in some serious aero tech designs that make it 30 seconds faster over 40 kilometres and 20% lighter as well. With Shimano 105 hydraulic disc groupset you're provided with smooth braking that isn't reliant on the weather conditions and 11-speed shifting which is smooth and fast and gets the job done time and time again. 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 new FACT 9r frame is the perfect blend of value and performance.
The 11-speed Shimano 105 shifting is extremely reliable and precise, while the hydraulic disc brakes offer exceptional modulation and stopping power.
DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
