Description

The Tarmac SL4 Sport boasts Specialized's Tour de France-winning pedigree with a FACT-carbon frame and fork, which let you fly down sweeping descents and float up climbs like the best of them. It will only take one ride for you to appreciate the incredible combination of feathery low weight and ripping power transfer that's evident whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. Component-wise, the Tarmac is adorned with a Shimano 105 22-speed drivetrain for conquering any ride, and easy-rolling Axis wheels for oodles of speed. Plus, the Tarmac comes with strong, dual-pivot brakes for maximum control and a fine helping of Specialized's quality components.

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.
