Specialized 2014 Tarmac SL4 Comp Ultegra $3169

Tarmac SL4 Comp Ultegra


The Tarmac SL4 is a pure and unbridled race machine. It climbs effortlessly, descends confidently, and sprints ferociously. It’s the lightest, stiffest frame we make and it shows as soon as you push on the pedals. Bottom line, you’ll be faster on this bike. There’s a reason it’s the weapon of choice for the Saxo-Tinkoff, Astana and Omega Pharma-Quick-Step Pro Tour teams.
  • Specialized SL4 FACT 9r carbon frame with uniquely shaped, tapered headtube and OSBB: now even stiffer and lighter for pure, unbridled speed and power; paired with a tapered, full-monocoque FACT carbon fork for ultimate steering precision
  • Specialized Turbo Elite 23c tires roll like a racing tire, but offer incredible durability and puncture resistance through BlackBelt protection
  • FSA Gossamer Pro BB30 with race-compact gearing delivers excellent power transfer and consistent shifting
  • New Shimano Ultegra, 11-speed mechanical drivetrain delivers light-action, precise shifting in a lightweight system, forming one of the finer parts kits available
