Primera Verdict 

 

 Specialized they need no introduction, The new SL6 Tarmac has taken the industry by storm and now they have added discs! With our team racing on this bike this year we have had feedback on and off the track from everyday training rides to fast and hard crit races through to multi-day stage events and the one resounding thing that has come back is it does everything phenomenally well! The best quote we have had is "It Feels like cheating!" 

 

If you want to go fast, like go fast everywhere, this is the bike. This is the bike that's made for everything from Grand Tours to your local fondo, and with a ground-up redesign, a heavy dose of aero wizardry, and of course, disc brakes, our "most complete race bike" is, well, even more complete.

Seven different sizes with the same tuned ride. The only way to do this is to obsess over every carbon ply and arrangement. It isn't the kind of glamorous work that lands you on the cover of magazines. Nope. It's scientists scrutinizing every thickness and shape, having heated arguments over stiffness targets and handling prowess like we have our own model UN, but you'd never notice that when you're riding a Tarmac. You'll just feel like you're riding the perfect bike.

A Bike In 500 Pieces

We added 200 more pieces to this carbon layup. Why? We asked ourselves that same question after our fifth cup of coffee one night, but the answer is easy. You. The last Tarmac's layup was the complex we'd ever created, but the added complexity found here has given us more opportunities to shave grams and tune the ride. You deserve the best ride in the world, after all, and it's our job to go to ridiculous lengths to give it to you. We literally examine every ply of carbon on every single frame size we make to ensure that all of our performance targets come through on the finished product. The process is absurdly detailed, because what works on a 49cm doesn't work on a 61cm. So, 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.

40KILOMETERS, 45 SECONDS FASTER

Aerodynamics is the most important thing we can do to make you faster, and we spent half a year adding it wherever we could. If we found that more aero meant less of that golden Tarmac feeling, we cut it. Now, you get the best of both worlds—the Tarmac we always wanted to build, that just so happens to be as aero as the first Venge. The aero development of the Tarmac took place over a six-month iterative process, but the knowledge of over six years, plus the data of countless aero projects, real world testing, and computation fluid dynamics, were all pulled for the Tarmac’s development. In the end, three areas were discovered where we could add aero for free—a new fork shape, dropped seatstays with aero tubes, and a D-shaped seatpost and seat tube. The result? A bike that’s approximately 45 seconds faster over 40 kilometres compared to other lightweight bikes in the same weight category.

Disc Brakes

Options—we want you to have them. That's why we've made a rim brake Tarmac and a disc version. No matter your preference, we have you covered. And better yet, the two versions are evenly matched on aero performance, speed, and handling, so your choice is really left to what you like and not what you're willing to sacrifice.
