Description

Specialized's Tarmac platform has Tour de France and Giro d' Italia wins to its credit. One ride on its lightweight FACT-carbon frame and monocoque tapered fork and you'll know why! The Tarmac SL4 Elite boasts an awesome combo of feathery weight and maximum stiffness for road-scorching power transfer that you'll appreciate whenever the road tilts skyward or you pick up the pace to put the hurt on your friends. It's equipped with a 22-speed Shimano Ultegra component group with a Praxis Works crankset and quick, smooth-rolling Axis wheels. Plus, you'll love the Specialized carbon and aluminum components throughout this fine road machine, while the super comfy Body Geometry saddle feels great from mile one to 100.

FACT IS Contruction

This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
