    Tarmac SL8 Pro - SRAM Force eTap AXS


    Tarmac SL8 Pro - SRAM Force eTap AXS

    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.

    Marvel Super Bike

    As I glide on the Tarmac SL8 Pro with the SRAM Force eTap AXS, I become one with a machine that's the epitome of cycling excellence. Every aspect of my ride is elevated to new heights, the responsiveness under my feet, the seamless gear shifts at my fingertips, and the sheer joy of speed that courses through my veins. Priced at a premium, this bike is an investment in my passion for cycling, a commitment to pursuing the very best. And while it's true that the only slow thing about this bike might be me, I know that with this incredible machine, I'm inspired to push my limits and become faster with every ride. It's not just a bike; it's a reflection of my dedication to the sport, a tool that challenges me to excel and a companion on my journey to greatness.



    Fun, get it before it is gone.

    Mine weighed 16 pounds 2 ounces on the scale without tubs or sealant. My Mtn Bikes are SRAM so I wanted to be able to swap batteries if needed. The power/cadence data sent to my Fenix 7 is why I finally upgraded and I am happy, this is very fast on the down. I will never be passed by a solo rider unless they have more gears but I live where there are steep mtns so I run out of power at about 42 mph on this gear ratio.
