Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 - Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 2022 Road Bike

5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

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.


With the SL7, Specialized aimed to create the fastest lightweight race bike available, and they have delivered. Using their FreeFoil shape library Specialized has 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 (with Aerofly II bars).

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 SL7 model uses Specialized’s top tier FACT 12r carbon, bringing with it a frame weight of just 800g.

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.

Specialized has built on all they learned from the Tarmac and Venge models, as well as input from some of the world’s greatest riders on the Specialized sponsored World Tour teams.

This race bike is equipped with only the best components including the new Shimano Dura-Ace DI2 12-speed groupset with hydraulic disc brakes and built-in crankset power meter, plus Roval Rapide CLX wheels. This is race-ready straight out of the box.

  • FACT 12r Carbon Frameset
  • Aero yet super lightweight
  • Rider-First Engineered
  • Includes S-Works Tarmac Carbon Seatpost and Tarmac stem
  • Shimano Dura-Ace R9200 Di2 12-speed groupset
  • Roval Rapide CLX 51/60mm deep carbon wheels
  • Power meter integrated into crankset

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.

Industry Reviews

As a technical exercise this is one hell of a bike. It really does deliver the whole package. It's great to ride, super-fast with sweet handling, and thanks to that low weight and the excellent wheels all it makes you want to do is smash it everywhere.

How do I measure my height?

With your shoes off, stand upright against a wall, with your shoulders back and legs together. Use a pencil to make a small mark on the wall above your head – make sure you hold the pencil parallel to the floor. Then measure from the floor to your mark, in centimetres or feet and inches.

 

How do I measure my inside leg length?

With your shoes off, stand upright with your back against a wall. Place a book/ruler between your legs, level with your crotch. Then measure from the floor to the top of the book/ruler, in centimetres or feet and inches (it’s easier if a friend helps).
