S-Works Tarmac SL6 Mens Road Frameset - Black/White - Shop Soiled 56cm Information

Season : 2018

Brand : Specialized

Code : 77018-0056 SS

The S-Works Tarmac breaks all the traditions of race bike design to create the fastest bike for all conditions.

The previous Tarmac had an exceptional palmarès - a win in every Grand Tour, plus two World Championships - but Specialized have never rested on their laurels, which is why they're constantly hunting for even the smallest of improvements. In other words, innovate or die and for this exact reason, they created the new S-Works Tarmac which breaks all the traditions of race bike design to create the fastest bike for all conditions.

To get the weight below 800 grams, advanced aerospace composite optimisation software was used to revolutionise the construction and layup of the new FACT 12r carbon. It's the most advanced material and schedule which shed nearly 200 grams. That's right, a 20% reduction in frame weight - the perfect recipe for your next hill climb PR.

The Rider-First Engineered™ technology was further improved to ensure that the new Tarmac is stiff and compliant in exactly the right places. The geometry was also updated basing it on countless Retül data points and professional rider input. This enabled Specialized to develop a performance road geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front end and short wheelbase, delivering instantaneous response and optimal power transfer. For an optimal ride quality, Specialized designed a seatpost that builds compliance into the upper 120mm where clamping doesn't happen, dropped the seatstays, and altered the seat tube shape. Tyre clearance up to 30mm was added, which translates to a 28mm Turbo Cotton on a Roval CLX 50 wheel. This allows lower pressures for decreased rolling resistance, increased traction, and more comfort. Altogether, these additions still have the Tarmac riding like a true race-machine, but just takes a bit of the sting out of those road imperfections.

Aerodynamic improvements are the most important thing to make you faster, and even the Bora-Hansgrohe and Team Quick Step Floors Pro Tour riders are demanding these on every bike. With this, the aero goal was to discover where they could essentially "add aero for free," by not taking anything away from the hallmarks of the Tarmac design. During the six-month iterative process, three areas were discovered where this could be done - a new fork shape, dropped seatstays with aero tubes, and a d-shaped seatpost and seat tube. The result is a bike that's approximately 45 seconds faster over 40km compared to other lightweight bikes in the same category. A speed savings that you'll feel when you're attacking off the front of the peloton.

  • Featuring a 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 S-Works FACT 12r frameset is the highest quality carbon frame, offering the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness. S-Works full FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
  • With its high-modulus construction, the S-Works FACT carbon Tarmac seatpost provides impeccable power transfer, while still allowing for ample compliance for long days in the saddle.
