A great all-rounder, the Specialized Tarmac SL6 Comp Disc Road Bike is light and stiff, one that will excel on the climbs but is just as capable on the flats and descents too. The FACT 9r carbon frameset utilises Rider-First Engineered™ philosophy in its design, ensuring the legendary handling and ride quality of the Tarmac is replicated across the whole range of sizes. Despite the rigidity, the bike also incorporates enough compliance to soak up the impacts of harsh roads through dropped seatstays and a carbon seatpost, so there's no compromise to comfort. Performance Road Geometry creates a responsive feel and optimises power transfer, it's aggressive yet still comfortable.
DT R470 Disc wheels and Specialized Turbo Pro tyres are a solid combination for faster, low resistance rolling, and the bike is built up with reliable Shimano Ultegra disc components, bringing trickle-down braking and shifting performance from flagship Dura-Ace at great value with only a very slight weight penalty.
