Description

The new Tarmac is designed to go fast there's no if's and's or but's about that—but it represents so much more than just aerodynamic prowess. With a light-weight Rider-First Engineered™ frame it delivers the best-possible ride characteristics no matter the size. So no matter what you have planned for your new Tarmac its ready to help you achieve your goals—PRs KOMs or podium top-steps. One bike to rule them all. With a full Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic groupset to keep shifts crisp and fast and S-Works Turbo 700x26mm tires to keep you rolling fast this new Tarmac delivers performance at a more palatable price point.   Aero is everything”—we’ve been preaching it for years and it’s still the driving force for the new Tarmac. In our quest for tube shapes that deliver the fastest frame that the UCI rules allow we took a page out of the Venge development book and utilized our FreeFoil Shape Library. Armed with a library of optimized shapes we turned to the Win Tunnel to plug these shapes into a modular test bike for more testing and validation. The result? A new Tarmac Expert that’s faster than before—33 seconds faster over 40km than the Tarmac SL6. No compromises just pure speed. While aerodynamics were paramount to the Tarmac’s development and to the development of all of our race bikes weight was the co-pilot on this optimal race bike journey. Previously “aero bikes” always compromised in the weight department—the more drag you reduced the more weight you gained. With the new Tarmac our design philosophy was to keep it at or below the UCI weight limit out of the box with no sacrifices to aerodynamics. And with the help of the FreeFoil Shape Library tools like isotopic FEA analysis and some engineering wizardry by the best engineers in the industry we delivered a frame that weighs a mere 920 grams without giving up a gram of aero stiffness or ride quality. Continuing our quest to develop the perfect race bike we used our Rider-First Engineered™ philosophy to ensure that the new Tarmac is the most balanced best handling Tarmac yet—no matter the size. With an army of the world’s best test riders from our three World Tour Teams — Boels-Dolmans Deceuninck-Quick-Step and Bora-hansgrohe — we made changes to the Tarmac based on their thousands of kilometers on the road. We balanced the ride quality between the front and rear end so even the longest days in the saddle continue to be comfortable—all without giving up anything to the Tarmac’s legendary handling and race-winning snappiness. Building on the learnings from the Venge the new Tarmac utilizes simple integration to create a clean fast cockpit that’s easy to live with. We’ve improved the routing for any configuration — mechanical shifting traditional stems round bars etc. — all while keeping its aerodynamic attributes. These same traits also make the new Tarmac easy to work on and easy to travel with. It’s a win-win.
