Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 Dura-Ace Di2 Road Bike 2019
Continually looking to improve on what may, to many, appear to be near perfect, Specialized have released the S-Works Tarmac SL6 Dura-Ace Di2 Road Bike; developed to be even faster, in all conditions. FACT 12r carbon fibre is the most advanced material available, revolutionary in its construction and layup, and takes an outstanding almost 200 grams off the frame weight.
Rider-First Engineered™ technology has been improved for even more stiffness and compliance, exactly where it's needed. Weight is reduced, and, as before, these benefits are seen equally across every frame size. The geometry has had an update and is based on countless Retül data points as well as input from professional riders, so you get a Performance Road Geometry that is responsive and transfers power exceptionally efficiently.
Although this is not categorised as an aero road bike, aerodynamics have still been a serious consideration. Nothing has been taken from the Tarmac design; however, areas of the bike have been adapted to reduce drag, essentially providing 'aero for free'. A new fork shape, dropped seatstays with aero tubes and a D-shaped seatpost and seat tube all result in this bike being around 45 seconds quicker over 40km compared to other bikes in its category.
Just as important is the quality of the ride, and the seatpost has had compliance built into the top 120mm. In addition, the seatstays have been dropped and the seat tube shape altered. Tyre clearance up to 30mm adds comfort to your ride, and these adaptations mean this bike is truly race-ready, yet will still be enjoyable to ride, no matter the distance or terrain.
The Tarmac frameset has been specced to the highest level, and includes Shimano's flagship Dura-Ace Di2 groupset. Shifting is crisp, reliable and precise, at just the light touch of the lever. Direct mount brakes offer modulated and powerful braking, so you can take fast descents at speed, in full confidence. A lightweight S-Works Power Cranks power meter is fitted to provide accurate and reliable dual-sided measurement of your watts so that you can take your training up a notch.
Finished with a Roval CLX 50 carbon wheelset, engineered in Specialized's Win Tunnel, you can be sure of superior aerodynamics, strength and stiffness.
- Featuring Specialized's 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 their highest quality carbon frame, offering the ideal blend of overall light weight and targeted stiffness
- Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 group provides exceptionally crisp shifts and keeps the total weight of the Tarmac to an absolute minimum
- The Win Tunnel Engineered Roval CLX 50 carbon wheelset offers superior aerodynamics and plenty of durability to be both a perfect training and race wheelset
