Specialized Tarmac Men Sl6 Pro Disc Udi2 2019 54 – Black/Holographic Black
Whether you're racing friends on the weekend snagging a new KOM or PR or mixing it up in a local road race the Tarmac Disc Pro it the purpose-built to do it with.
In order cut some grams from the Tarmac but to also ensure that it's stiff and compliant in exactly the right places we took major steps to improving our Rider-First Engineered™ technology.
From different layup schedules and materials to visibly different forks we scrutinized every single aspect of the Tarmac to ensure you're getting the perfect ride.
With this revamp we also updated the geometry basing it on countless Retül data points and professional rider input.
This enabled us to develop a Performance Road Geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front-end and short wheelbase which delivers 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 we designed a seatpost that builds compliance into the upper 120mm where clamping doesn't happen dropped the seatstays and altered the seat tube shape.
We also added tyre clearance up to 30mm which translates to a 28mm Turbo Cotton on a Roval CL 50 Disc 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 it also takes a bit of the sting out of road imperfections.
You'll thank us on your next long ride.
But why disc brakes? The real question is 'why not?' They offer superior braking power and modulation work exceptionally well in wet weather and offer a very very minor weight addition.
All this means that you have more control and can go faster with more confidence.
We also know however that aerodynamic improvements are the most important thing we can do to make you faster.
Our Bora-Hansgrohe and Quick-Step Floors Pro Tour riders after all are demanding aero improvements on every bike.
With this the aero goal was to discover where we 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 we 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.
The spec on this Tarmac means business with Shimano Ultegra Di2 handling shifting duties powerful hydraulic disc brakes and lightweight and aerodynamic Roval CL 50 Disc carbon wheels.
Featuring our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac.
The FACT 10r frame is the perfect blend of value and performance.
Shimano's new Ultegra Di2 with hydraulic disc brakes not only offers exceptionally smooth and crisp shifts but it also provides incredible stopping power and modulation.
The Roval CL 50 Disc wheelset utilizes the same rim as its older sibling the CLX 50 Disc but pairs it with traditional bearings and round spokes to keep value at an all-time high.
Specifications subject to change without notice.
