Specialized SWorks Tarmac Disc SL6 Dura Ace Di2 Carbon/Black/clean
What is a road bike? A machine? A tool? Or is it a continuation of the body, a paintbrush completing a picture of your true self? We believe it's more than this, as words can't describe the feeling it gives you to ride, nor can they encapsulate the dedication behind our innovative designs. It requires years in the Win Tunnel, on the road, and in the lab perfecting aero and carbon combinations, and it's worth every drop of sweat to deliver you the perfect ride. When Specialized developed the Tarmac Disc, they didn't just want it to be fast. the engineers wanted it to be fast everywhere in every aspect. On the Long climbs, through those long exposed roads and windy flats, From Grand Tour stages to local fondos—they've built a race bike to be the most complete machine out there. How’d they do it? Starting with their 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 a whopping 20% lighter. Nothing is lighter, faster, and better handling. This S-Works Tarmac comes ready to race with Shimano's new Dura-Ace 9170 Di2 groupset with disc brakes and the lightweight, yet impressively aerodynamic, Roval CLX 50 Disc wheels with 26mm Turbo Cotton tires. For the construction of the S-Works Tarmac, we utilized advanced aerospace composite optimization software to revolutionize the construction and layup of our new FACT 12r carbon.Its the most advanced material weve ever made, this allowed the engineers to shed a further 200 grams, resulting in a 20% reduction in overall frame weight, still retaining maximum stifness throughout the frame and fork with the highest of quality of carbon fibre material. 500 pieces creating 7 different sizes with the same tuned ride–that’s Rider-First Engineered™. We 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, areas were discovered where we could add aero for free—a new fork shape and dropped seatstays with aero tubes. The result? A Tarmac that’s approximately 30 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. For additional compliance, the seatpost has flex built-into the upper 120mm where clamping doesn't happen. We also dropped the seatstays, altered the seat tube shape, and added tire clearance up to 30mm.
