2022 Tarmac SL7 Expert

The new Tarmac is designed to go fast, there’s no if’s, and’s, or but’s about that—but it represents so much more than just aerodynamic prowess. With a light-weight, Rider-First Engineered™ frame, it delivers the best-possible ride characteristics, no matter the size. So no matter what you have planned for your new Tarmac, its ready to help you achieve your goals—PRs, KOMs, or podium top-steps. One bike to rule them all.

With a full Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic groupset to keep shifts crisp and fast, and S-Works Turbo 700x26mm tires to keep you rolling fast, this new Tarmac delivers performance at a more palatable price point.

This is an awesome bike!

This is an awesome bike! Super responsive, fast and the gears shift very smoothly. I haven't had it very long but I love and can't wait for the warmer months to get here. It's not as confortable as my Roubaix but i like the fit. I ordered my bike through Specialized and they are great to work with. They kept me informed from when they received my order, and shipped the bike out as to when it was going to arrive. I would order again from them.

I have been a tarmac

I have been a tarmac owner for 10 years since buying my first Sl3 way back in 2013 at my local bike shop and upgraded it to the teeth. However the time came to make the jump to the new model and wow. The first thing I noticed was how little noise the bike makes and on climbs feels incredible swinging side to side with 0 flex (as you would imagine), changing gears absolutely seamlessly. The bike came even more alive with a longer stem, slamming a few cm and swapping for tubeless tyres. Being able to run 60psi on the grippy British roads makes this machine an absolute dream. Also the rusty red colour looks great with pretty much any kit. I would highly recommend this despite the price tag as it really is the full package and you just unpack and enjoy it without having to chase down levers, cranks etc My only improvement would be for power meter to come with the bike as it’s quite hard to get hood of these right now and old ultegra meters (I’m told) are not compatible.

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Fantastic Bike!

The only thing I would change on this bike are the handlebars. Rapide handlebars would be a great choice for this bike. The wheels are fine, but if you want to upgrade them to the CLX, that's your choice. Overall, I highly recommend this bike. Great for racing, group rides or riding solo.

Wow

Do yourself a favour and buy this bike, it is truely amazing and fast. I did upgrade to Roval CLX wheels and went carbon bars, I just have this thing if you spend 10k on a bike it needs carbon handle bars! The new Shimano 12 speed is so sharp and crisp it's the perfect partner for this weapon. My fitness just needs to match this bike now, but we'll achieve this together. Any slight descent and this thing just takes off. I did miss my old SL5 when I sold it, but this thing is another league. I didn't think I'd notice much difference but it was incredible. I can only imaging what the S Works SL7 would be like to ride! I've just turned 50 and this feels like I'm dating a 25 year old. Buy it and you can thank me later!
