When absolute performance is a must, the best riders in the world choose the S-
Works Tarmac. With its Rider-First Engineered™ design, every frame is engineered
to provide the same complete performance across the entire frame size run. This
means instantaneous accelerations when climbing and the legendary descent-
shredding prowess that you'd expect from a Tarmac. With the S-Works Tarmac
Frameset, you can start building up your dreambike exactly how you've always
Featuring Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures the same hill-destroying, descent-shredding complete performance across every frame size. The S-Works Frameset is composed of our highest quality FACT 11r carbon, and it's the go-to choice for riders like Alberto Contador, Vincenzo Nibali, and Michał Kwiatkowski.
S-Works-specific FACT full carbon fork with tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
In order to navigate the most harrowing descents, yet still be responsive enough to throw around in a sprint or up a climb, you need a bike that handles predictably and confidently. Our Competitive Road Geometry takes classic road bike geometry, and combines it with optimized head and seat tube angles and fork offsets that produce rock solid handling, regardless of the terrain. Not only does this create a bike that handles a broad range of road events, but overall fit is also improved with the added benefit of ensuring comfort and performance.
Learning from McLaren’s advanced testing approach, we developed industry-first simulation models and dynamic testing protocols that gave our engineers an unprecedented ability to understand exactly how various sized bicycles respond to different stresses. This data allowed us to engineer frames that take into account the most important element on a bike—the rider. As a result, we're able to identify specific performance targets for each of the seven frame sizes and then independently engineer each one in order to achieve the discrete performance targets. This means consistent performance for every bike, regardless of size.
FACT CARBON FRAME
Our FACT carbon frames are the result of years of carbon engineering and manufacturing experience. And with FACT carbon fiber technology, they possess the ideal balance of weight, stiffness, and vibration damping for complete performance.
HAND-CRAFTED ROVAL WHEELS
Roval wheels are the result of extensive testing in the wind tunnel and real-world development under Pro Tour UCI riders. Featuring wide internal and external rim profiles that optimize the tire profile for precise handling, stiffness, and aerodynamics, Roval hand crafted wheels are the perfect balance of performance and speed.
Hydraulic and mechanical disc brakes provide more efficient stopping power, regardless of the weather or terrain. Additionally, they provide more modulation while requiring less hand input. This results in keeping you safe, confident, and fresher at the end of the day.
