Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 Dura Ace Di2 Road Bike 2022 The Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 Dura Ace Di2 Road Bike seamlessly merges aerodynamics, low weight and a stunning ride quality to produce a quick, comfortable and efficient ride across any route, whether mountainous, flat or punchy like an Ardennes classic. The frame uses the finest grade of carbon within its construction to bring its weight down to just 800 grams (painted, size 56) while maintaining exceptional lateral stiffness, promoting nimble climbing and snappy acceleration. This carbon material is formed into tube profiles conceived in Specialized’s own “Win Tunnel”, and these combine with the aerodynamic handlebar and hidden brake hoses to elicit incredibly low drag across a complete sweep of yaw angles. The Rider First Engineered concept is applied to the frameset, balancing its stiffness and vertical compliance across the front and rear of its design, and along with clearance for plush 32mm tyres, this ensures comfort, poise and stability, regardless of the frame size. A race-inspired frameset geometry places the rider powerfully over the pedals, allowing them to transfer all their energy to the lightweight, aerodynamic Roval CLX wheelset. This wheelset is driven by the Shimano Dura-Ace R9200 12-speed gears that use their semi-wireless electronic format to action lightning fast, smooth and reliable gear changes. In addition, this drivetrain setup includes a power meter within the crank arms to help the rider accurately track their training and racing performances. Stopping duties are charged to the hydraulic disc brakes, and these perform flawlessly, affording confidence on even the most rain-soaked mountain descents. Highlights A race machine that fuses aerodynamics, low weight and ride quality to produce the fastest possible ride The FACT 12r carbon frameset weighs just 800 grams (painted, size 56) and has abundant lateral stiffness to afford tremendous responsiveness Frameset tube profiles honed in the brand’s “Win Tunnel” markedly reduce aerodynamic drag A Rider First Engineered design process perfectly balances the ride quality from front to rear, ensuring comfort and pedalling efficiency, regardless of frame size The semi-integrated aero handlebar and stem internally house the brake hoses that flow into the frame’s headtube, further reducing drag A race-inspired geometry positions the rider powerfully over the pedals Clearance for up to 32mm wide tyres offers the opportunity of extra compliance and grip on poor roads Roval Rapide CLX wheels use their lightweight carbon rims with front and rear specific profiles to slice through the wind Shimano Dura-Ace R9200 12-speed, semi-wireless electronic gears shift flawlessly amongst a wide range of ratios A power meter integrated into the chainset allows accurate tracking of training and race performances Hydraulic disc brakes stop with power and control in all weather conditions
