The base Tarmac brings performance to the masses, with many of the same technologies that you'll find in our higher-end models, but with a price tag that's a bit more palatable. To go along with this Grand-Tour winning FACT 9r carbon frame and performance geometry, we've spec'd it with the reliable shifting of Shimano's Tiagra. It's the perfect introduction to start exploring the roads ahead.
As for the spec, we've made sure to select components that keep you rolling without worry like durable DT R460 wheels, Shimano Tiagra shifting, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort.
- The FACT 9r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of our top-end carbon production methods with a Grand-Tour-winning geometry that begs for you to go faster.
- FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
- The alloy Praxis Alba M30 crankset is plenty stiff, provides crisp shifts, and keeps your drivetrain running smooth, quiet, and efficient.
