We all have to start somewhere, but when that starting "somewhere" is the Tarmac SL4, you're already leaps and bounds ahead of the field. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 9r carbon fiber construction that's nearly mirrors what you'll find under the likes of Peter Sagan and Alberto Contador. For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, durable Axis Elite wheels, a mix of workhorse components via Shimano Tiagra and Praxis, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort. We think that it's time to step your game up, and the Tarmac Sport is just the right tool to do it with.
- The FACT 9r carbon frame combines lightweight performance and compliance to ensure that you receive the legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac.
- S-Works FACT full carbon fork with tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
- Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class, these tough Axis Elite wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.
