Technical Specifications
After three consecutive victories in the Tour of Flanders, the Tarmac went on to win the 2010 Tour de France. Like the team bikes of Mark Cavendish and Team HTC-Highroad, this SL3 is complemented by Shimano Dura-Ace.
  • The notorious Pro Tour-dominating SL3 FACT IS 11r carbon frame has phenomenal stiffness to weight ratio, with tapered head tube and OSBB carbon shell
  • Full carbon monocoque fork with tapered steerer provides for the ultimate in precision handling and acceleration
  • Specialized S-Works FACT carbon crankset with oversized BB, removable carbon spider, and ceramic bearings has the highest strength to weight ratio for unparalleled efficiency and power transfer
  • Body Geometry Romin carbon-reinforced saddle with Ti tails, and contoured profile for optimal power position
  • S-Works FACT carbon seatpost and cradle is super light and stiff for optimal power transfer, fully adjustable, and accommodates carbon-rails
  • Ultralight Roval Rapide SL 45 wheelset with carbon/alloy hybrid rims for low aerodynamic drag with the durability of an alloy brake track
