Specialized S-Works Tarmac Frameset, Chameleon
The Specialized S-Works Tarmac Frameset utilizes advanced aerospace composite optimization software to revolutionize the construction and layup of the new FACT 12r carbon. It's the most advanced material, and this has allowed us a 20% reduction in frame weight—the perfect recipe for your next hill climb PR.
Rider-First Engineered™ technology ensures that the new Tarmac is stiff and compliant in exactly the right places, with Performance Road Geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front-end and short wheelbase, which delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.
There's ample tire clearance up to 30mm, 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 it also takes a bit of the sting out of road imperfections.
Aero improvements include a new fork shape, dropped seatstays with aero tubes, and a D-shaped seatpost and seat tube. The result? A bike that's approximately 45 seconds faster over 40km compared to other lightweight bikes in the same category.
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 frame 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.
A legendary CeramicSpeed bottom bracket ensures that you're saving every last precious watt.
