Tarmac SL4 Expert
Overview

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.
  • New Shimano Ultegra, 11-speed mechanical drivetrain delivers light-action, precise shifting in a light weight system, forming one of the finer parts kits available
  • Specialized SL4 FACT 10r carbon frame with uniquely shaped, tapered headtube and OSBB is now even stiffer and lighter for pure, unbridled speed and power, paired with a tapered, full-monocoque FACT carbon fork for ultimate steering precision
  • FSA SL-K Light carbon BB30 crank is stiff and light for excellent power transfer
  • Specialized Turbo Pro 23c tires deliver an incredible package of light weight, low rolling resistance, and superior traction, all with BlackBelt protection
