- The new Tarmac is not just designed to go fast; it represents a whole new level of aerodynamic prowess and so much more. With its lightweight Rider-First Engineered™ frame, it delivers unparalleled ride characteristics, regardless of size. Whether you're aiming for personal records, conquering KOMs, or reaching podium top-steps, the Tarmac is the one bike that rules them all.
- Equipped with a full Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic groupset for crisp and rapid shifts, and 700x25mm tires to keep you rolling at high speeds, this new Tarmac delivers exceptional performance at an accessible price point.
- 'Aero is everything'—this has been Specialized's mantra for years, and it continues to be the driving force behind the new Tarmac. In the relentless pursuit of tube shapes that offer the fastest frame allowed by UCI regulations, they drew inspiration from the development of the Venge model and utilized the cutting-edge FreeFoil Shape Library. Armed with an arsenal of optimized shapes, they turned to the renowned Win Tunnel to test and validate these designs using a modular test bike. The result? The new Tarmac Expert, which is faster than ever before—33 seconds faster over 40km than the Tarmac SL6. No compromises, just pure speed.
- While aerodynamics played a crucial role in the Tarmac's development, they also focused on weight to create the ultimate racing machine. In the past, so-called "aero bikes" often sacrificed weight for reduced drag. However, with the new Tarmac, their design philosophy was to keep it at or below the UCI weight limit without compromising aerodynamics. Thanks to the FreeFoil Shape Library, advanced tools like isotopic FEA analysis, and the genius of the industry-leading engineers, it achieved a frame that weighs a mere 920 grams—without sacrificing aerodynamics, stiffness, or ride quality.
- Continuing the quest for the perfect race bike, they employed our Rider-First Engineered™ approach to ensure that the new Tarmac offers the most balanced and best handling experience to date, regardless of size. With input from the world-class test riders from Boels-Dolmans, Deceuninck-Quick-Step, and Bora-hansgrohe—the powerhouses of the World Tour—they made precise adjustments to the Tarmac based on their extensive kilometers on the road. It achieved a harmonious ride quality between the front and rear ends, ensuring exceptional comfort even during the longest saddle days, without compromising the Tarmac's legendary handling and race-winning agility.
- Drawing from the insights gained from the Venge, the new Tarmac features seamless integration to create a sleek and efficient cockpit that is user-friendly. They have improved routing options for various configurations, whether you prefer mechanical shifting, traditional stems, or round bars—all while maintaining its aerodynamic advantages. These same attributes also make the new Tarmac easy to maintain and travel with, providing you with a winning combination.
Experience the unrivaled speed, versatility, and innovation of the new Tarmac SL7. Rent one today and elevate your cycling journey to new heights. Unleash the power of the Tarmac and enjoy the perfect balance of speed, agility, and comfort.
