Whether it's winning the Tour de France or a city-limit sprint, Tarmac is made for racing, with its powerful acceleration and razor-sharp handling. SRAM Apex components and our new DT-Axis 2.0 offer high performance and low cost.

  • The FACT carbon fork is light, stiff, and compliant with a tapered steerer
  • New Specialized Tarmac Comp alloy handlebar is stiff, tough, and light for serious performance
  • SRAM Apex 10-speed DoubleTap shifters offer simple intuitive shifting and reach adjustment for perfect fit
  • Specialized BG Romin Comp features a shaped profile for max power and hollow Cr-Mo rails for durability
  • Specialized Sport alloy seatpost keeps the weight down and durability up
