Description of Specialized Men's TARMAC EXPERT Ultegra Roadbike - 2018 - flo red/metallic white silver/tarmac black

Phenomenal Performance!

If you're obsessed with marginal gains and have the wallet to back it up, Specialized made S-Works. But if you're obsessed with phenomenal performance but have a racer's budget—they know the feeling—look no further than the new Tarmac Expert with Shimano Ultegra.

To get the weight around 950 grams, Specialized utilized advanced aerospace composite optimization software to revolutionize the construction and layup of their new FACT 10r carbon. It's the most advanced material and schedule they've ever made—the shape, schedule, and material optimization allowed us to shed nearly 200 grams. That's right, a 20% reduction in frame weight—the perfect recipe for your next hill climb PR.

Specialized then further improved their Rider-First Engineered™ technology to ensure that the new Tarmac is stiff and compliant in exactly the right places. With this revamp, they also updated the geometry—basing it on countless Retül data points and professional rider input. This enabled them to develop a performance road geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front end and short wheelbase, delivering instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.

And while stiffness aids in the aforementioned, compliance must also be utilized for an optimal ride quality. That's why Specialized designed a seatpost that builds compliance into the upper 120 mm where clamping doesn't happen, dropped the seatstays, and altered the seat tube shape. Specialized also added tire clearance up to 30 mm, which translates to a 28 mm Turbo Cotton on a Roval CL 50 wheel. This allows lower pressures for decreased rolling resistance, increased traction, and more comfort. Altogether, these additions still have the Tarmac riding like a true race-machine, but just takes a bit of the sting out of those road imperfections. You'll thanks us on your next long ride.

And while this is all great, Specialized know that aerodynamics are the most important thing they can do to make you faster. Both their Bora-Hansgrohe and Team Quick Step Floors Pro Tour riders, after all, are demanding aero improvements on every bike. With this, the aero goal was to discover where they could essentially "add aero for free," by not taking anything away from the hallmarks of the Tarmac design. During the six-month iterative process, three areas were discovered where Specialized could do this—a new fork shape, dropped seatstays with aero tubes, and a d-shaped seatpost and seat tube. The result? A bike that's approximately 45 seconds faster over 40km compared to other lightweight bikes in the same category. A speed savings that you'll feel when you're attacking off the front of the peloton.
