Specialized Tarmac SL4 Sagan Superstar Road Bike 2018
Fast, comfortable and efficient; characteristics every seasoned cyclist craves. The Specialized Tarmac SL4 Sagan Superstar Road Bike ticks all three boxes with the added bonus of its eye-catching, Sagan inspired paintwork, making it a great choice for cyclists of all levels looking for a top performing, aesthetically pleasing new ride.
The frame is constructed from Specialized's tried and tested FACT 9r carbon, as found on their Grand Tour winning race machines, guaranteeing you a fast and responsive ride every time. The FACT carbon, monocoque fork pairs perfectly, providing the quick, predictable steering required during a fast-paced race environment, whilst weight is further shifted through Specialized's comp carbon seatpost.
Shifting is taken care of by Shimano's 105 11-speed groupset; a highly regarded offering, renowned for its smooth, crisp shifting, whilst the Axis calipers ensure controlled and stable stopping power. Furthermore, the 50/34T Praxis Works chainset and 11-28t cassette combination offer a wide range of gears, capable of excelling up alpine climbs and on flat, fast sprints alike.
The bike is finished with DT Swiss wheels and Specialized's popular Body Geometry components, for a perfect blend of value, comfort, and performance. The wheelset takes advantage of sealed cartridge bearings, providing high levels of durability, for fast-paced riding all year round. This four-season focussed design is further enhanced by the Espoir Elite tyres, with their Kevlar® bead increasing puncture resilience without compromising speed, grip or comfort, perfect for winter commuting and Sunday tear ups alike.
In summary, the Tarmac SL4 Sagan Superstar is a great choice for anyone looking to simply get out and ride. Its design utilises high-level processes and equipment in the areas that affect its performance most, whilst using tough, reliable products elsewhere to keep the cost reasonable and durability high, while the Sagan inspired paintwork will ensure you are the centre of attention on your next group ride.
