About the Specialized Tarmac Disc Sport When Specialized developed the Tarmac Disc, they didn’t just want it to be fast. We wanted it to be fast everywhere. Long climbs, windy flats, Grand Tour stages, local fondos—Specialized built a race bike to be the most complete out there. They started with our Rider-First Engineered™ frame with a perfectly-tuned ride quality for every size, added in some serious aero tech that makes it 30 seconds faster over 40 kilometers than the Tarmac SL5, and then made it 20% lighter. Nothing is lighter, faster, and better handling. This Tarmac comes with a reliable spec that includes Shimano 105 mechanical shifting and quick-stopping hydraulic disc brakes, durable DT R470 Disc wheels, and our fan-favorite Power saddle.For the construction of the Tarmac, Specialized utilized advanced aerospace composite optimization software to revolutionize the construction and layup of our new FACT 9r carbon.500 pieces creating 7 different sizes with the same tuned ride–that’s Rider-First Engineered™. Specialized examine every ply of carbon on every frame size to ensure that all of our performance targets come through. To make sure you get the perfect ride, every frame gets a unique layup schedule with different ply arrangements, orientations, quantities of material in specific areas, and sometimes, even exclusive thicknesses and types of carbon itself. Aerodynamics is the most important thing we can do to make you faster, but with the Tarmac, we added aero features without any cost to weight. Through development, three areas were discovered where we could add aero for free—a new fork shape, dropped seatstays with aero tubes, and a D-shaped seatpost and seat tube. The result? A Tarmac that’s approximately 45 seconds faster over 40 kilometers. The updated the geometry is based on countless Retül data points and professional rider input. This enabled us to develop a Performance Road Geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front-end and short wheelbase, which delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.Key FeaturesSpecialized Tarmac SL6 FACT 9r carbon frame is stiff where you need it, compliant where you don’tFACT 10r carbon Fork is designed for high-speed handling and absorbing road vibrationShimano 105 22 speed drivetrain give you the famous, high performance, fast and light Shimano 105 shifting experienceShimano 105 Hydraulic Disc Brakes give powerful, controllable and consistent stopping power with less effortTurbo Pro 700x25c tyres offer excellent handling and rolling efficiency on the tarmacAbout the BrandSpecialized, has ‘over 40 years’ experience in the bike trade and now produce one of the largest range of bikes available.
