Almost 3000 years ago, the pinnacle of sport was celebrated with fire. Today, our Torch Collection honors the Gods of Sport by bringing the flame back to competition. The Tarmac Comp Torch Edition is a celebration of the greatest sporting event on earth, with colors signifying the flame of competition. Aside from its head turning aesthetic, this Tarmac was born to perform. 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 nearly mirrors what you'll find under the likes of Peter Sagan and Alberto Contador. For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, stiff, reliable DT Swiss R460 wheels, a mix of Shimano Ultegra 6800 and 105, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort.
  • 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. The difference being, in comparison to our highest carbon offering, are some added grams—a small price to pay at this value.
  • S-Works FACT full carbon fork with tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
  • Shimano Ultegra 6800 shifting provides 11 speeds of crisp, precise, and reliable shifting that's right on par in the performance department with its Dura-Ace cousin, only with a few added grams to the recipe.
