Product Description

A purebred race bike - fast uphill, assured on the descents with superb acceleration. The Specialized Tarmac SL4 Comp will make you ride faster.

Developed in partnership with McLaren the Specialized FACT 9r Carbon frameset has been optimized to provide peak performance for each and every rider. Unlike most bikes, each of the seven frame sizes has been individually designed to cope with the specific requirements of different riders. Compared with the Tarmac SL4 of previous years larger riders will notice a marked improvement in steering performance while smaller riders benefit from a lighter frame.

Lightweight Fulcrum S4 wheels provide stable, confident handling on the descents while still allowing you to fly up the climbs.

The Shimano Ultegra 11 speed groupset offers quick, precise shifting for lightning fast gear changes. New for 2015 is the very light and stiff Praxis Works, TURN Zayante, crankset ensuring that every ounce of power is transferred efficiently to the road.

If you want to ride fast then the Specialized Tarmac Comp is the bike for you.

Tarmac comp
by mark c on 23/02/2016

I have just come back to pick up my Tarmac comp from England to return back to palma Mallorca. The bike was all I wished for and more. Gears are amazingly smooth and effortless to use. A very good buy

Bargain bike
by Anthony H on 16/02/2016

As a die hard mountain biker for over twenty years I never thought I'd be writing a review of a road bike. Commuting the 40 or so miles each day to work and back on an old 9 speed alu road bike was just a cheap way to travel and train at the same time, it has never been about fun. So I treated myself to the Tarmac and now I actually enjoy riding to work; the bike is super smooth, quiet, fast, light, the gears work perfectly and the brakes work really well (even in the wet). Well worth the money.

Specialized Tarmac Comp 2015
by Ademola A on 27/01/2016

At £2000, this was an amazing bike, but at £1300 on sale, it's the very best bike.! The faster you ride, the more you appreciate this bike. Aggressive, smooth, stiff, light weight and very fast.

Excellent sale price
by Patrick M on 27/01/2016

Not the right time to give it a spin so unfair to mark down performance but build and value for money are 2ND to none, can't wait to get out on it. I have an allez sport so know specialized and as well as looking great it comes with the fantastic ultegra kit and is really light compared to what I'm used to. Customer service, on email and phone they couldn't be more helpful. That was brilliant and a well packed delivery with only a couple of things to adjust from the box I'm delighted!

Brilliant
by Mathew S on 19/01/2016

So so happy with this bike, absolute bargain for only 1299 from 2000. Simply cannot go wrong. Superb carbon frame from specialized and the ultegra groupset is such an upgrade from my old sora.

Specialised SL4 Tarmac comp 2015
by Garry S on 08/10/2014

My first proper road bike. I set a limit of £2000 and after checking the market this bike has everything. Superb build full carbon ultegra gearing and brakes. Fulcrum wheels effortless to ride and comfortable. The service from Tredz was excellent next day delivery and the bikes ready to go.

Tarmac Comp 2015
by Stephen C on 04/09/2014

Superb service from Tredz from initial order to delivery.The bike is exactly what you would expect. A top quality frame and components for a reasonable price. The colour scheme is lovely but obviously this is down to personal preference.The ultegra group set is faultless and unless you are a top end rider I really cant see the justification for dura ace. The wheel set fits nicely with the bike but is definitely the weak link if there is one for this price.Definitively recommend the bike and Tredz.
