The Details

Specialized has designed the new Tarmac to have the perfect blend of aerodynamics, light weight, and ride quality to deliver the ride of your life. From using their FreeFoil Shape Library to find the best tube shapes, to developing the next generation of Rider-First Engineered™ design, the new Tarmac is the culmination of our ever-longing pursuit of speed. It’s a pure-bred race machine with no compromises. One bike to rule them all.

The all-new Tarmac Pro delivers the perfect blend of performance and value. A full SRAM Force eTap AXS 2x groupset aides in aero performance, will delivering a gear range that provides plenty of range for most rides—a 46t chainring with a 10-36 cassette. Add in Roval’s new Rapide CL, with their exceptional stability and aerodynamic prowess, and the Tarmac Pro with SRAM eTap is perfect for crit racing, smashing the group ride, or piloting you to that next PR.

  • Aero is everything—Specialized has been preaching it for years and it’s still the driving force for the new Tarmac. In their quest for tube shapes that deliver the fastest frame that the UCI rules allow, they've taken a page out of the Venge development book and utilized FreeFoil Shape Library. Armed with a library of optimized shapes, Specialized turned to the Win Tunnel to plug these shapes into a modular test bike, for more testing and validation. The result? A new Tarmac that’s the fastest ever tested—45 seconds faster over 40km than the Tarmac SL6. No compromises, just pure speed.
  • While aerodynamics were paramount to the Tarmac’s development, and to the development of all of race bikes, weight was the co-pilot on this optimal race bike journey. Previously "aero bikes" always compromised in the weight department—the more drag you reduced, the more weight you gained. With the new Tarmac, the design philosophy was to keep it at, or below, the UCI weight limit out of the box, with no sacrifices to aerodynamics. And with the help of the FreeFoil Shape Library, tools like isotopic FEA analysis, and some engineering wizardry by the best engineers in the industry, Specialized delivered a frame that weighs a mere 920 grams, without giving up a gram of aero, stiffness or ride quality.
  • Continuing the quest to develop the perfect race bike, they've used a Rider-First Engineered™ philosophy to ensure that the new Tarmac is the most balanced, best handling Tarmac yet—no matter the size. With an army of the world’s best test riders from three World Tour Teams — Boels-Dolmans, Deceuninck-Quick-Step, and Bora-hansgrohe — changes were made to the Tarmac based on their thousands of kilometers on the road. Balancing the ride quality between the front and rear end, so even the longest days in the saddle continue to be comfortable—all without giving up anything to the Tarmac’s legendary handling and race-winning snappiness.
  • Building on the learnings from the Venge, the new Tarmac utilizes simple integration to create a clean, fast cockpit that’s easy to live with. With improved routing for any configuration — mechanical shifting, traditional stems, round bars, etc. — all while keeping its aerodynamic attributes. These same traits also make the new Tarmac easy to work on and easy to travel with. It’s a win-win.

Our Verdict

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