Specialized Tarmac Expert 2019 Carbon Road Bike

Are you ready to annihilate the competition on your training rides and local races, then this new Tarmac Expert is pretty damn hard to beat. Specialized's classic carbon road bike with a aero shape to help you maximize your speed and an even lighter weight frame and Roval CL 50 carbon rims makes for easier hill climbs.

Key Features

  • Rider-First Engineered™, FACT 10r carbon frame - the most advanced to date
  • The shape, schedule, and material of the frame has been optimised to allow Specialized to shed nearly 20% of the frame weight
  • Full Shimano Ultegra groupset including cranks, brakes, cassette and chain
  • 11-speed Shimano Ultegra 8000 shifting is extremely reliable, lightweight, and precise
  • Roval CL 50 wheelset, Win Tunnel Engineered, carbon rims are light, aero and stiff

Here's How Specialized Describe the Tarmac SL6 Expert

  • Our S-Works Tarmac Expert might be the perfect bike for winning a Grand Tour, but chances are, you're not going to be competing in Southern France this season. But when you need a bike that's ready to annihilate the competition on your training rides and local races, the new Tarmac Expert is pretty damn hard to beat.

  • We know that aerodynamics are the most important thing we can do to make you faster. Both our Bora-Hansgrohe and Quick-Step Floors Pro Tour riders, after all, are demanding aero improvements on every bike. With this, the aero goal was to discover where we 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 we could do this—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.

  • This Tarmac comes ready to race out of the box, featuring a crisp Shimano Ultegra 8000 groupset, resplendent Roval CL 50 carbon wheelset, and a sublime Toupé Expert Gel saddle.
