Overview

Reviews
The Tarmac Elite is a pure and unbridled race machine. It climbs effortlessly, descends confidently, and sprints ferociously. Bottom line, you'll be faster on this bike. With a Shimano 105 drivetrain it's the perfect combination of performance and exceptional value.
  • Specialized Turbo Pro, 700x25c tires offer grip and fast rolling speed
  • The custom color—Rocket Red—is designed to naturally age over time. It will exhibit splashes of a dark rich color when exposed to prolonged direct sunlight. This finish is deliberate and therefore not covered under the traditional warranty policy.
  • FACT 9r carbon frame is ultra-stiff and lightweight for pure speed
  • Turn Zayante compact crankset delivers excellent power transfer and consistent shifting
  • Body Geometry Toupé Comp Gel saddle w/ hollow Cr-Mo rails for comfort without compromise
  • Shimano 105 brakes offer smooth and confident modulation
  • Shimano 105, 11-speed rear derailleur for crisp and dependable shifting
  • Fulcrum S5 wheelset is strong, reliable, and race-ready
