HOME > BIKES > ROAD > MEN'S TARMAC DISC EXPERT

If you plan on racing a Grand Tour this summer sure go rock that S-Works. But if you're on the hunt for a glorious ride that can smash both a local crit and your friends on the weekends you'll feel right at home on the Tarmac Disc Expert.

In order cut some grams from the Tarmac but to also ensure that it's stiff and compliant in exactly the right places we took major steps to improving our Rider-First Engineered™ technology. From different layup schedules and materials to visibly different forks we scrutinized every single aspect of the Tarmac to ensure you're getting the perfect ride. With this revamp we also updated the geometry basing it on countless Retül data points and professional rider input. This enabled us to develop a Performance Road Geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front-end and short wheelbase which delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.

And while stiffness aids in the aforementioned compliance must also be utilized for an optimal ride quality. That's why we designed a seatpost that builds compliance into the upper 120mm where clamping doesn't happen dropped the seatstays and altered the seat tube shape. We also added tyre clearance up to 30mm which translates to a 28mm Turbo Cotton on a Roval C 38 Disc wheel. This allows lower pressures for decreased rolling resistance increased traction and more comfort. Altogether these additions still have the Tarmac riding like a true race-machine but it also takes a bit of the sting out of road imperfections. You'll thank us on your next long ride.

But why disc brakes? The real question is "why not?" They offer superior braking power and modulation work exceptionally well in wet weather and offer a very very minor weight addition. All this means that you have more control and can go faster with more confidence.

We also know however that aerodynamic improvements are the most important thing we can do to make you faster. Our Bora-Hansgrohe and Quick-Step Floors Pro Tour riders after all are demanding aero improvements on every bike. With this the aero goal was to discover where we could essentially "add aero for free" by not taking anything away from the hallmarks of the Tarmac design. During the six-month iterative process three areas were discovered where we could do this—a new fork shape dropped seatstays with aero tubes and a D-shaped seatpost and seat tube. The result? A bike that's approximately 45 seconds faster over 40km compared to other lightweight bikes in the same category.

The build spec on this Tarmac Disc is value-packed featuring Shimano Ultegra mechanical shifting Shimano hydraulic disc brakes a Roval C 38 Disc carbon fibre wheelset.

  • A FACT 10r carbon fibre frame hits the right balance of value and performance, while our Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ technology guarantees precision performance across the whole size range.
  • You can’t go wrong with Shimano Ultegra shifting, or their hydraulic disc brakes. Time to hammer those descents and glide up the climbs.
  • Carbon wheels on a bike at this price point used to be unheard of. Now, we think it’s the new normal. The Roval C38 Disc wheels on this model are light, tough and hyper-versatile.

Please note that this bike does not come with pedals.

    This bike is amazing. I purchased this bike back in August It is my first carbon bike and I can not believe how quick it is. The r8000 Ultegra is mint, very smooth to change and very reliable. The Roval c38 Carbon wheels are a great addition and they are quick and absorb the road effortlessly. I was a bit worried about spending the money on this but it has been worth every penny so far! The guys in the Specialized concept store in Birmingham have been great and their service has been exemplary.
