    S-Works Tarmac SL8 Frameset

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    Nothing is faster than the Tarmac SL8 thanks to a combination of aerodynamics, lightweight, and ride quality previously thought impossible. After eight generations and over two decades of development, it’s more than the fastest Tarmac ever - it’s the world’s fastest race bike. Your legs up for it?

    Aerodynamics or lightweight alone don’t win races - speed is what matters. Delivering that speed requires creating an uncompromising combination of aerodynamics, lightweight, stiffness, and compliance. Through race simulations using real world data our Ride Science team knows the Tarmac SL8 is the fastest race bike ever made on the routes that matter - 16.6 seconds faster over 40km, 128 seconds faster over Milan San Remo, 20 seconds faster over the legendary Tourmalet climb.

    SL8 is off the hook!!

    I recently purchased the Specialized SL8 and I'm beyond happy with my decision. I'm an avid cyclist, and have been looking for a bike that is lightweight, comfortable, and offers superior performance. The SL8 is all of those things and more. The lightweight frame along with Sram Force axis groupset make the bike so fast and responsive, and the geometry is comfortable for long rides. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. I would highly recommend this bike to anyone looking for a high-performance bike. The SL8 one of the best bike I've ever owned, and I'm sure it will serve me well for many years to come.

    Worth the dollars.

    I recently upgraded from an SL7 pro to the SL8 Sworks. A noticeable leap in performance for the price. Overall weight saving from complete bike sram force to sram red, CLX wheels to CLX II and Roval cockpit from SL7 two piece unit almost 3lbs. More responsive on climbs, easier to maintain and achieve higher average speeds. SWorks SL7 to SWorks SL8 difference might be minor, but SL7 Pro to SL8 SWorks makes you smile more even during New England rain storms. (Ride 54 frame, 5,11ft).
