Few bikes invoke podium dreams and longing like our Tarmac, and with the Tarmac Elite, you get your slice of the Tarmac performance lineage at a price that's more than favourable. You'll also find a Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 9r carbon fibre construction.
For the spec, we selected components that deliver reliable performance, like durable DT R460 wheels, a mix of Shimano Ultegra 8000 and Praxis, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort.
- The FACT 9r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of our top-end carbon production methods with our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac. The difference being, in comparison to our highest carbon offering, are some added grams—a small price to pay at this value.
- FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
- Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class, these tough DT R460 wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.
