SPECIALIZED S-Works Tarmac Frame 2018
The previous Tarmac had an exceptional palmarisâa win in every Grand Tour, plus two World Championshipsâso you might ask yourself, "why a new Tarmac?" Well, we've never been one to rest on our laurels, which is why we're constantly hunting for even the smallest of improvements. In other words, we innovate or die. And for this exact reason, the new S-Works Tarmac breaks all the traditions of race bike design to create the fastest bike for all conditions.
To get the weight below 800 grams, we utilized advanced aerospace composite optimization software to revolutionize the construction and layup of our new FACT 12r carbon. It's the most advanced material and schedule we've ever madeâthe shape, schedule, and material optimization allowed us to shed nearly 200 grams. That's right, a 20% reduction in frame weightâthe perfect recipe for your next hill climb PR.
We then further improved our Rider-First Engineeredâ¢ technology to ensure that the new Tarmac is stiff and compliant in exactly the right places. With this revamp, we also updated the geometryâbasing it on countless RetÃ¼l 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, delivering instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.
And while stiffness aids in the aforementioned, compliance must also be utilized for an optimal ride quality. That's why we designed a seatpost that builds compliance into the upper 120mm where clamping doesnât happen, dropped the seatstays, and altered the seat
