Details of the Specialized TARMAC SL8 EXPERT

Aero everywhere

When it comes to aerodynamics, it’s the surfaces that really count, not where it looks best. This philosophy was followed during development. The newly designed head tube of the Tarmac SL8 maintains the air flow better, as the surface at the front is more tapered. With the Speed Sniffer, the slimmer cross-section of the head tube results in significantly less air resistance. In addition, the slimmest and most aerodynamic Specialized seatpost ever was developed for the Tarmac SL8 to comply with the new UCI regulations. The bike is designed to win.

Minimal weight

The Tarmac SL8 uses knowledge gained from the development of the Aethos and easily reaches the UCI weight limit, despite a full aero setup. The team has developed an incredible frame that weighs just 685 grams – 15% lighter than the Tarmac SL7. Thanks to the new technical possibilities, the weight of the down tube, seat tube and rear triangle has been optimized, as the new shape of the frame distributes the load so efficiently that additional carbon layers are no longer necessary for more stiffness.

Moves forward

By significantly improving the stiffness-to-weight ratio by 33%, the Tarmac SL8 reaches a new level in terms of legendary handling, aggressive response and geometry. The bike is stiffer at the bottom bracket, more precise at the handlebars and more comfortable in the saddle, setting new standards for road bike performance and comfort.
