The Details

Aero, stiff, light. When it comes to choosing a road bike, you’ve always had to compromise - until now. The brand-new Tarmac SL7 is truly the one bike to rule them all.

With the SL7 Specialized aimed to create the fastest lightweight race bike available, and they have delivered. Using their Free Foil library Specialized have built a frameset that perfectly blends aerodynamic tube shapes with the staple race bike features of low weight and sharp handling. The result, a lightweight race bike that is a whole 45 seconds faster over 40km than the Tarmac SL6.
 
The goal was to merge the best traits of their flagship Tarmac race bike with the aero prowess of the Venge. Two of the best bikes available combined into one, ensuring Specialized athletes no longer needed to compromise on race day. This Expert model uses Specialized’s FACT 10r carbon, bringing with it a frame weight as low as 920g. A threaded BB sees easy longevity and ease of maintenance as a focus, keeping you on the bike and out of the workshop.
 
The SL7 features a clean, fast cockpit, with an all-new Tarmac specific stem that tips the scales at 45g less than the model used on the Venge. Using a Rider-First Engineered™ frameset allows the SL7 to be perfectly balanced in stiffness and weight across all sizes, ensuring all riders receive the same ride quality.
