Specialized Tarmac SL8 Expert Carbon Road Bike 2024 56cm – Gloss Metallic Dark Navy/Astral Blue + 25% Pearl


Nothing is faster than the Tarmac SL8 thanks to a combination of aerodynamics lightweight and ride quality previously thought impossible. After eight generations andover two decades of development it’s more than the fastest Tarmac ever – it’s the world’sfastest race bike. Your legs up for it? AERO IN EVERYTHING: We’re putting aero where it matters – the leading edge – notjust where it looks good. In the process we’ve created our most aerodynamic roadbike ever. Yes it’s more aero than the Venge. Clean air is optimized for maximumadvantage with the Tarmac’s new nose cone – the Speed Sniffer. By moving the steertube back – the tube that determines head tube width – the leading edge of the headtube can be much sharper delivering a much lower drag shape. Utilizing new UCIrules the Tarmac SL8 has the narrowest most aero seat post we’ve ever madeensuring fast moving dirty air around the legs can flow back more cleanly. Doesn’tvictory smell sweet? MINIMUM WEIGHT MAXIMUM AERO: Tarmac SL8 took learnings from Aethos tobe easily built at the UCI minimum with a full aero set up. The team delivered a mindbending scale tickling 685 gram frame – 15% lighter than the Tarmac SL7 and lighterthan anything on else on the World Tour*. With the ability to make lightweight a toppriority in the down tube seat tube and rear of the bike lessons from Aethos wereapplied. The frame’s shape carries load so efficiently that extra carbon stiffness layersbecome redundant. *Unless of course you count the time Kasper Asgreen raced our585 gram Aethos frame during a Tour stage. GOES LIKE HELL RIDES LIKE HEAVEN: With massive gains in stiffness-to-weight- an improvement of 33% over the SL7 – the Tarmac SL8 takes legendary handling aggressive responsiveness and World Championship proven geometry to the nextlevel. The bike is stiffer at the pedals more precise at the bars and combines it with acompliant ride in the saddle that sets a new benchmark for race bike comfort. Thanksto our Rider-First Engineering every rider regardless of size gets the sameunprecedented ride quality and handling. In the saddle the Tarmac SL8 delivers 6%more compliance floating over rough road with a supple feel unique in the high strungworld of race bikes. Tarmac’s proven geometry and 32mm tire clearance are identicalto the SL7 ensuring easy adaptation and the versatility to run higher volume tireswhen needed. BEYOND GENDER: There can be more difference between two male cyclists thanbetween a male and female. Gender alone doesn’t provide nearly enough data tospecialize and that means creating male or female bikes is arbitrary and outdated.Every rider can get the next level advantage of Tarmac SL8.
