Specialized Tarmac 2015

Tarmac is the top-of-the-line model of Specialized’s road bike series. It is developed in a partnership with the British Formula One constructor McLaren.

Most recently, team Saxo Tinkoff’s Spanish rider Alberto Contador won the Vuelta a España 2014 using a Specialized S-Works Tarmac bike.

The motto of the Specialized Tarmac is “Rider-First Engineered™”. Specialized explains that “it is a totally new way to approach bicycle development that grew out of our partnership with the leaders in Formula 1 development, McLaren. Rider-First Engineered™ begins and ends with the Rider; each of the seven frame sizes was developed independently, based exclusively on the real-world stresses introduced by the corresponding rider.”

According to Specialized, when compared to the previous Tarmac SL4, all seven sizes of the new Tarmac see improvements in handling, pedaling response (BB stiffness), ride compliance and aerodynamics. On top of that, smaller riders (49, 52, and 54) get a lighter and more balanced bike with improved in-corner handling. Large riders (61 and 64) see marked improvements in steering response.
