Specialized Tarmac is the admiral ship of the American bicycle manufacturer’s road bike models. According to Specialized, its stiffness-to-weight ratio is increased by 19% over the previous Tour de France winning version (refers to Andy Schleck’s 2010 Tour de France win. The original winner was Alberto Contador, he was also riding a Specialized Tarmac, but he lost his victory to Schleck due to doping).

As always, there are plenty of build options for each Specialized Tarmac model in 2014.
