The Specialized Tarmac SL4 Road Bike 2017 has all the features you need to take your performance to new heights. Its lightweight FACT 9r carbon frame and S-Works FACT carbon fork are lightweight, durable and strong, whilst the Shimano Ultegra 6800, 11-speed groupset provides a wider range of gearing for greater climbing efficiency. All-in-all, it’s a bike you want to be riding when you need an extra push in the peloton.
Specialized Tarmac SL4 Elite Road Bike 2017
Specialized Tarmac SL4 Road Bike 2017
Derived from the same geometry and race winning attitude that Peter Sagan rode to numerous stage wins with, the Specialized Tarmac SL4 Elite Road Bike 2017 is a true pedigree within the road racing circuit. A low weight, stiff and durable frame, alongside highly capable components, all at a more favourable price point make for the ideal entry level road bike for cycling enthusiasts.
The frame is constructed from Specialized’s FACT 9r carbon fibre which ensures you receive the legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you’d expect from a bike of this nature. Its more aggressive positioning is aimed towards riders who yearn for top speeds and conquer KOMs in their stride - it really is a race winning bike.
Specialized’s FACT full carbon fork follows the same suit as the frame, producing an exceptional level of 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.
To give more bang for the buck, a wide range of capable and durable components have been incorporated into the Tarmac SL4. A Shimano Ultegra 6800, 11-speed drivetrain produces split-second, smooth shifting for a more efficient ride, but its 11-28t cassette also gives you the versatility to take on harsher, steeper gradients.
Ultegra 6800 has also been recruited for the braking on the Tarmac SL4. As you’ll be racking up the miles, you need a pair of strong, powerful brakes to get you to the bottom of the descent safely, and that’s exactly what these brakes offer. Weighing only 333g (front and rear calipers), these brakes improve efficiency and control and provide greater braking power modulation over long, technical descents.
A set of durable Specialized Axis Elite wheels connect everything to the road, giving the Tarmac its famed power transfer efficiency. Combined with Specialized Espoir Elite 700x23mm tyres, your stability and grip will take a new turn, allowing you to corner at greater speeds and descend in confidence.
- The Specialized FACT 9r carbon frame combines lightweight performance and compliance to ensure that you receive the legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac
- Specialized's S-Works FACT full carbon fork with 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 Axis Elite wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package
