The Tarmac Sport combines all of the complete performance that the Tarmac is known the world over for, with the reliable shifting of Shimano’s Tiagra. Consider it the perfect bike to grow along with you as you explore the open roads ahead. And along the way, you'll also find a Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 9r carbon fibre construction.
For the spec, we selected components that deliver surefooted performance, like durable DT R460 wheels, crisp Shimano 105 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 our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac. The difference being, in comparison to our highest carbon offering, are some added grams—a small price to pay at this value.
- FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
- A stiff, lightweight alloy Praxis Alba 2D crankset is there to punch well above its weight class, minimizing energy loss while you're hammering away on the pedals.
