Chances are, you’re not going to be competing in a Grand Tour this year, but when it comes to your training rides and local races, it’s hard to top the Tarmac Expert Disc. Like the S-Works Tarmac iterations, it features a Rider-First EngineeredÜ¢ design that that applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of size, performs just as we intended. You’ll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 10r carbon fibre construction that’s mere steps away from what you’ll find under the likes of Peter Sagan and Alberto Contador. For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, stiff, reliable DT Swiss R460 Disc Pro wheels, Shimano Ultegra 6800, a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximise performance by providing the utmost in comfort, and powerful Shimano disc brakes that’ll stop on a dime no matter the conditions. It’s everything you need to take your racing to the next level, and more than enough to bag some PRs on the weekend.
- The FACT 10r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of our top-end carbon production methods with our Rider-First EngineeredÜ¢ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you’d expect from a Tarmac. Even better, it’s specifically designed for disc brakes, so you’ll never have to compromise performance for stopping power.
- S-Works FACT full carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents. It’s also designed for disc brakes, so you won’t experience any lurch or degradation in performance.
- Shimano BR-785 hydraulic disc brakes deliver smooth modulation and lever feel, and more importantly, incredible stopping power in any condition.
