Integration for Speed

As fast and light as the new Tarmac SL7 frame is, Specialized couldn’t have achieved their goals without the fastest components in the world. From the slippery Aerofly II bar to the all-new Roval Rapide CLX wheels and even a new SL7 stem that hides cables and saves 45 grams, all while ensuring you can find your fastest fit.

Anything Lighter is Illegal

If you want a lighter bike, you better hand in your racing license. Because at under 6.8kg out of the box, the Tarmac SL7 is legal and ready to race. By limiting the frame’s surface area and strategically reducing wall thickness, Specialized’s painted FACT 12r frames are just 800 grams – all without giving up an ounce of aero, stiffness or ride quality.

The Winner’s Ride

No bike is more influenced by Specialized’s racers than the Tarmac. A two-decade long collaboration with the best riders in the world has pushed their engineering team farther than they ever thought possible, so far in fact, that the new Tarmac SL7 redefines the modern race bike. By making compromise a thing of the past, the Tarmac obliterates all competition.

Faster – by 45 Seconds

After two decades of Tarmac development, Specialized found a way to go 45 seconds faster over 40k than the Tarmac SL6, without adding a gram of weight. How? By targeting the tubes that truly impact aero – seat tube, seatstays, head tube, fork blades – with shapes from their FreeFoil Shape Library and mating them with hidden cables and Specialized’s fastest components.

Aero, Stiff, Light. Pick Three.

The New Tarmac SL7 handles and sprints just as well as it climbs. Now you’ll never need to compromise weight for aerodynamics. You can have it all.

Telepathic Handling

Tarmac handling is so responsive it’s as if it reads your mind – with unrivaled response at the bars, magic at the pedals, and the comfort to stay fresh over hundreds of kilometers. The new Tarmac SL7 raises the bar again, it’s the most balanced Tarmac ever and the greatest example of our Rider-First Engineered™ philosophy.

Tarmac SL6 Still Sets the Bar

Our apologies to all the other manufacturers that have been trying to reach the high bar the Tarmac SL6 set. To this day, nothing is faster, lighter, or better handling, except of course for the new Tarmac SL7. And now, you can still get all that performance with our Tarmac SL6 Comp, Sport, and Base models.
