The Specialized Tarmac SL7 puts an end to compromise, and racing will never be the same.
Riders can now climb on the lightest bike the rules allow, sprint on the fastest – all with legendary Tarmac handling. It’s like we combined Julian Alaphilippe’s attacking, climbing style, and Peter Sagan’s aggressive power in a single rider with no weaknesses. The only choice you need to make is when to attack.
How much does the Tarmac SL7 weigh?
The S-Works Tarmac SL7 uses Specialized’s most premium FACT 12r material and layup to achieve a painted weight of 800g in the lightest colorways. The complete out of the box weight of the S-Works Di2 model is 6.7kg in the Carbon/Color Run Silver Green colorway.
The Tarmac SL7 Pro and Expert models use Specialized’s FACT 10r carbon material and layup and have a frame weight of 920g. The complete Tarmac SL7 Pro UDi2 model weighs 7.3kg, and the Tarmac SL7 Expert UDi2 model weighs 7.65kg.
What’s the difference between FACT 12r and 10r framesets?
The main differences between these two frame levels is the carbon layup and the materials used. Both frames share the same design and there is no difference to the handling or ride quality between them.
When it comes to aerodynamics, how much faster is the new Tarmac SL7 compared to the Tarmac SL6?
The new Tarmac SL7 truly offers no compromises and a big part of the development was all about speed. Aerodynamically, the new Tarmac SL7 saves a rider an average of 45 seconds over a 40km course compared to the Tarmac SL6. These aero gains are the result of improvements to the frameset, integrated cockpit (Aerofly and Tarmac Stem), and Roval Rapide wheels.
Do the professional race teams use a special version of the Tarmac?
The Tarmac has been developed with input from our professional riders over many generations. The S-Works Tarmac SL7 that you can purchase is identical to the bikes raced by pros like Sagan, Alaphilippe, and van der Breggen.
What is the geometry of the Tarmac SL7?
The Tarmac SL7 features identical fit and handling geometry as the outgoing Tarmac SL6 and Venge. Detailed measurements can be found in the geometry chart.
How is stack and reach measured on the Tarmac?
Stack and reach are measured to the center of the top of the headtube as is customary. Although these numbers are different than the Tarmac SL6, the fit geometry is identical between Tarmac SL6, Tarmac SL7, and the Venge. Once you compensate for the height of the necessary headset cover on each bike, your stem’s lowest position ends up at the same point in space on any of them.
What sizes do the new Tarmac stem come in?
The new Tarmac stem has two angles, -6 and -12 degrees. The -6 degree stem comes in 70/80/90/100/110/120/130mm lengths and is spec’d on bikes as well as available aftermarket. The -12 degree stem is available in 110/120/130/140mm lengths and is available aftermarket.
What handlebar is the Tarmac stem compatible with?
The Tarmac stem has the cleanest cable routing when paired with the S-Works Aerofly II handlebar. It was designed with a traditional 31.8mm clamp to work with most other handlebars on the market as well.
What offset will the new Tarmac seat post come in?
The S-Works Tarmac SL7 seatpost is available in both 20mm and 0mm offsets and in 300mm and 380mm lengths. Complete bikes and framesets will be spec’d with the 20mm offset model.
What build configuration is the Tarmac SL7 compatible with?
The Tarmac SL7 is only compatible with hydraulic disc brakes. All models can be built with electronic or mechanical drivetrains. Three headset covers are included with all Tarmac SL7 models. These headset caps allow for three different builds, that can be visibly determined by the routing holes:
– Integrated Tarmac Stem with electronic shifting
– Integrated Tarmac Stem with mechanical shifting
– Universal cap for a standard stem and round spacers with either electronic or mechanical shifting.
What is the biggest tire size you can install on the Tarmac SL7?
Every Tarmac SL7 comes spec’d with 700x26mm tires, however, the frame was designed with much larger clearance in mind. You can fit tires up to 32c on 21mm rims with 4mm of clearance all around. Of course, this is all still dependent on the exact tire and rim combination as there is quite a bit of variation among tires especially. We suggest that you check fitment of the tire before you take it out for a ride.
What are the other tech specs of the Tarmac SL7?
All Tarmac SL7 models have a 68mm BSA threaded bottom bracket. The Tarmac SL7 has 142×12 and 100×12 thru axles and follows the Shimano flat mount disc brake standard.
