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. Shimano Tiagra components and our new DT-Axis 2.0 offer high performance and low cost.
  • FACT IS 8r carbon frame with tapered head tube and elliptical seatstays is race-ready stiff and fast without sacrificing compliance
  • The FACT carbon fork is light, stiff, and compliant with a tapered steerer
  • Significantly lighter than comparable-level wheelsets, these tough new DT-Axis 2.0 hoops roll smooth and fast
  • New Specialized Tarmac Comp alloy handlebar is stiff, tough, and light for serious performance
  • New 10-speed Shimano Tiagra STI shifters provide great value and high-performance
  • Specialized BG Romin Comp features a shaped profile for max power and hollow Cr-Mo rails for durability
