Leading our pros to victory at races like Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Tour of Flanders, and countless others, the Tarmac® proves itself to be the best handling, most high-performance bike on the road. Thanks to the integration of critical components, an extremely rigid FACT carbon frame, and proprietary Body Geometry extras, we can proudly say that nothing is lighter and stiffer.
  • FACT full carbon monocoque fork is stiff and lightweight with a 1.5" lower headset bearing
  • Lightweight, ergonomic alloy handlebars fit naturally for power and agility in the cockpit
  • Adjustable 4-position, 3D-forged alloy stem with 31.8mm bar clamp for strength and versatile positioning
  • New FACT Comp Carbon Pave 27.2mm seatpost with extended Zertz inserts helps minimize road vibrations for a comfortable ride
  • Body Geometry Toupe saddle features a carbon reinforced shell and hollow Cr-Mo rails for balanced stiffness and compliance on longer rides
  • Lightweight, efficient and stiff, the Tarmac FACT 8r carbon triple monocoque frame is engineered with one goal--to get to the podium fastest
