Specialized Tarmac Sl6 Sport Disc 2019 49 – Satin Cast Battleship/Hyper/Clean


The Tarmac Disc Sport is the perfect entry-level high-performance road bike.

With a full carbon fibre frame a list of reliable components and many of the features found in way more expensive models it's sure to get you out on the road riding with an ear-to-ear smile.

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 dropped the seatstays and altered the seat tube shape.

We also added tyre clearance up to 30mm.

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 and dropped seatstays with aero tubes.

This Tarmac comes with a reliable spec that includes Shimano 105 mechanical shifting quick-stopping hydraulic disc brakes durable DT R470 Disc 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 9r frame is the perfect blend of value and performance.

The 11-speed Shimano 105 shifting is extremely reliable and precise while the hydraulic disc brakes offer exceptional modulation and stopping power..

DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable sealed cartridge hubs and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
