While there's a certain degree of truth in applying terms like "upgrade" or "value" to our Tarmac Comp, we prefer to refrain from doing so. Why? Because the Tarmac Comp stands on its own two wheels as a bike that's born to perform and able to take your riding and racing to the next level.
Like the S-Works Tarmac iterations, it features a Rider-First Engineered™ design that that applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of its size, performs just as we intended. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry to past Tarmacs, plus a high-end FACT 10r carbon fibre construction.
For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, like stiff, reliable DT Swiss R460 wheels, a mix of Shimano Ultegra 8000 and 105, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort.
- The FACT 10r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance 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.
- FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
- The Roval SLX 24 rims, laced to DT Swiss hubs, are lightweight and durable alloy wheels that work well for both training and racing.
