Tarmac SL4 Elite 105
Overview
Technical Specifications
Reviews
The Tarmac SL4 is a pure and unbridled race machine. It climbs effortlessly, descends confidently, and sprints ferociously. It's the lightest, stiffest frame we make and it shows as soon as you push on the pedals. Bottom line, you'll be faster on this bike. There's a reason it's the weapon of choice for the Saxo-Tinkoff, Astana and Omega Pharma-Quick-Step Pro Tour teams.
  • Smooth, precise Shimano 105 STI shifters are renowned for their race-ready performance and exceptional value
  • Specialized SL4 FACT 9r carbon frame with uniquely shaped, tapered headtube and OSBB is now even stiffer and lighter for pure, unbridled speed and power, paired with tapered, full-monocoque FACT carbon fork for ultimate steering precision
  • FSA Gossamer Pro BB30 with race-compact gearing delivers excellent power transfer and consistent shifting
  • Specialized Turbo Elite 23c tires roll like a racing tire, but offer incredible durability and puncture resistance through BlackBelt protection
