Specialized Tarmac SL7 S-Works Dura Ace Di2 2021 Carbon Road Bike Grey

3.1 out of 5 Customer Rating

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 S-Works model uses Specialized’s top tier FACT 12r carbon, bringing with it a frame weight as low as 800g, and an overall bike weight of just 6.7kg when built up with Shimano’s Dura Ace Di2. A threaded BB sees easy longevity and ease of maintenance as a focus, keeping you on the bike and out of the workshop.
 
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. 
 
One of the SL7’s most eye-catching features is the complete lack of cabling, with all cables and hoses being routed underneath an all-new Tarmac specific stem. Featuring an integrated computer mount and tipping the scales at 45g less than the model used on the Venge, this improves leading-edge aerodynamics and gives an aesthetic to match the frames high performance. This coupled with Roval’s new Rapide wheelset ensures total aero optimisation.
