Chances are, you're not going to be competing in a Grand Tour this year, but when it comes to your training rides and local races, it's hard to top the Tarmac Expert. Like the S-Works Tarmac iterations, it features a Rider-First Engineered™ design that that applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of size, performs just as we intended. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 10r carbon fiber construction that's mere steps away from what you'll find under the likes of Peter Sagan. For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, stiff, reliable DT Swiss R460 Pro wheels, Shimano Ultegra 6800, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort. It's everything you need to take your racing to the next level, and more than enough to bag some PRs on the weekend.
- The FACT 10r 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.
- S-Works FACT full carbon fork with tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
- The DT Swiss R460 Pro wheelset can be considered a "jack of all trades." It features an ample width for interfacing nicely with wider tires, while its alloy construction is both sturdy and stiff, making it ideal for climbing, railing corners, and taking a hit when those pesky potholes sneak up on you.
