When you’re riding to win, you need a range of components to keep up with your speed. The Specialized Tarmac Expert eTap Road Bike 2017 is ready for this, with a super lightweight FACT 10r carbon frame and S-Works FACT carbon fork for an efficient ride. The SRAM Red eTap, 11-speed groupset takes shifting speeds to the next level. SRAM Force brakes also inspire confidence in the descents and perform as well in the wet weather as they do in the dry.
Specialized Tarmac Expert ETap Road Bike 2017
Specialized Tarmac Expert eTap Road Bike 2017
With a frame constructed from incredibly high-quality carbon fibre and featuring top of the line components specifically selected to increase your performance, the Specialized Tarmac Expert eTap Road Bike 2017 is ready for anything and everything you can imagine. Take on the harshest of gradients, the most technical of descents and do it all in style and speed with this bike.
The FACT 10r carbon frame incorporates Specialized’s top-end carbon production methods, alongside a Rider-First Engineered design that ensures every frame size gets the optimal levels of stiffness and rigidity needed for a more efficient ride. No matter if you’re riding a 49cm or a 61cm, everyone will get the same performance benefits.
Specialized’s S-Works, FACT full carbon fork follows the same suit as the frame, producing exceptional stiffness and steering response without adding any weight. It’s ideal for sprinters, climbers and wind-defiers as it transfers instantaneous acceleration into lightning fast speed when out the saddle and produces beautifully snappy control when on high-speed, technical descents.
A frame and fork combination of this nature deserves a component fitting that compliments its state-of-the-art nature, so Specialized have instilled their confidence into the renowned SRAM Red eTap groupset. Shifting fast, the Red eTap drivetrain allows for lightning quick gear changes that rapidly enhance work rate by cutting down on any concentration lapses when out on the road, or mechanicals that could potentially end your ride.
With one of the most intuitive shifting systems ever created, each lever either shifts up or down, not both. The right lever shifts up and the left, down, while pressing both levers at the same time, shifts the front derailleur. This system makes accidental shifting a thing of the past. This, alongside SRAM's redesigned Ergofit levers seamlessly connect you to the bike and the ReachAdjust hoods fit any hand size or shape. Carbon ErgoBlade levers provide ergonomic and tactile shifting, so your hand doesn't slip or get caught.
SRAM Force brakes are used to command the braking prowess of the Tarmac Expert, providing new levels of confidence when taking on technical descents. The actuated brake calipers sport a slimline design that cuts aerodynamic drag for a more efficient ride, too.
Finished with a DT R460 Pro wheelset and Specialized S-Works Turbo 700x24mm tyre combination, you’ll be able to corner at higher speeds due to the incredible levels of grip on offer. The wheels are also perfect for all-around use, staying strong when sprinting out the saddle and efficiently connecting the bike to the road for a more in-tuned ride feel.
- The FACT 10r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of Specialized’s top-end carbon production methods with their Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac
