How good is the Specialized S-Works Tarmac Dura-Ace? In its first season, it won two Grand Tours and a World Championship—not too shabby. The incredibly light, stiff FACT carbon frame features a one-piece bottom bracket and seatstay construction for phenomenal power transfer and pedaling efficiency, transforming your efforts into blinding speed. The frame is paired with a tapered full monocoque fork for precise, dialed steering. By coupling its Rider-First Engineered design that ensures peak performance across every size frame with the legendary performance of the Dura-Ace 11-speed build kit, it's no wonder that it's the bike of choice for riders like Vincenzo Nibali, Alberto Contador, and Peter Sagan.
Proven many times over in the Pro Tour, Shimano's 11-speed Dura-Ace drivetrain is matched with an S-Works FACT carbon crankset for fast, precision shifting no matter the conditions. Shimano's Dura-Ace brakes showcase high modulation and stopping power. Specialized's Roval Rapide CLX 40 carbon wheels are the perfect pairing for the S-Works Tarmac; the buttery smooth 40mm-deep carbon rims offer unbeatably low rotating weight and blinding acceleration. With a set of Specialized's supple, 24mm-wide Turbo Cotton tires, you're ready to start carving up your favorite descent. Only top-tier components are good enough for an S-Works frame, so Specialized equipped this thoroughbred with Aerofly bars and a FACT carbon seatpost to damp road vibration, as well as a Body Geometry S-Works Toupe Pro saddle dressed up with carbon rails. If you're looking for the ultimate in complete road bike performance, look no further.
