Specialized Tarmac Expert Road Bike 2016
Built to race and built for speed, the Specialized Tarmac Expert Road Bike 2016 is ready for the start line and a place on the podium. Equipped with the expert performance of the Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain for super-smooth and reliable shifting, the Tarmac Expert is capable of conquering any gradient.
A FACT 10r carbon frame with Specialized's Rider-First Engineered™ design ensures uniform performance metrics across the entire size run, making this expertly-equipped race machine ready to be put through the paces.
With its Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every size frame has the same responsiveness and descending prowess that you'd expect from a Tarmac, the FACT 10r carbon frame is a high quality carbon option with a precise blend of light weight and stiffness.
The FACT full carbon fibre fork is specifically designed to each frame size, providing incredible front end stiffness and steering input for rapid accelerations and speedy descents.
The incredibly smooth and fast Fulcrum Racing S-19 Light wheels will help transfer your power to the road. They're built with butted alloy spokes to be tough enough to handle even the roughest roads and still come back for more.
