Product description

Take your riding to the next level with the Specialized Tarmac Comp. this winning road race bike offers an aggressive riding position, efficient power transfer and precise steering control.

Frame & Fork

The FACT 9r carbon composite frame is very strong and stiff, rolled up into a lightweight package. Carbon composite material absorbs road vibrations far better than an aluminium frame giving you a more comfortable ride.

A full carbon fork also helps to improve steering precision in a lightweight package that, just like the frame, also helps to soak up road buzz.

Oversized bottom bracket and chainstays are molded together as one unit. This results in a super stiff unit that resists deflection under load. Your acceleration improves as more of your power is being transferred directly to the drivetrain.

Rider-First Engineered

Each frame size is specifically engineered for the needs of the individual rider. No matter your size the ride experience will be the same as all other riders. Smaller riders benefit from a lighter, more balanced bike with improved handling in the corners. Larger riders benefit from a marked increase in steering response.

Testing and development of Rider-First engineering is carried out in partnership with McLaren F1.

Components

Equipped is a Shimano Ultegra 11 speed groupset, a performance setup, designed for racing. Praxis Works TURN Zayante chainset with hollow forged cranks arms and, of course, Praxis Works chainrings are light, stiff and very reliable. The semi compact chainset offers higher gear options compared to the 2015 Tarmac Comp, which has compact cranks.

Fulcrum Racing S4 wheels are good performers and durable for long-lasting use. The carbon seatpost further helps to reduce road vibrations for a more comfortable ride, especially over longer distances.

  • FACT 9r carbon composite frame is stiff and lightweight

Surpisingly Comfy

I have a BMC Granfondo but was looking for an additional bike that was a bit different. I was recommended this by Tredz as an alternative to a Giant that was out of stock. My only concern was the aggressive riding style, mainly due to my bad back that i didnt think would be compatible with this type of bike. But as looking for something different and the great spec for the price on offer i decided to bite the bullet. Its early days yet but this bike much to my surprise is far more comfortable than the BMC, i find i can cycle quicker and further without having to pull up every so often to stretch my back. Very happy with the bike and it seems to suit my posture to a tee, only negative would be that a wee upgrade to the wheels will probably be needed sooner rather than later especially if you are out most days for a run.

Specialized Tarmac Comp

The order process and communication was great. I received emails with tracking numbers and even one with the frame serial number for added security. The bike was well packaged and easy to assemble. I was riding it within 10 minutes of opening the box. I love the bike it was well set up by tredz with everything working smoothly as it should.
