Practice that victory salute because Specialized's Tarmac SL4 Expert is ready to win races! Whether the race is serious or just for bragging rights, its 10r FACT carbon frame and fork dance up the climbs, rail descents, and power across the flats with ease thanks to their fantastically low weight and road-scorching stiffness. What's more, the Expert comes with smooth Fulcrum S4 wheels propelled by a precision-shifting Shimano Ultegra 22-speed drivetrain with the ideal blend of reliability and smoothness. Plus, a whole host of Specialized's carbon and aluminum components that beg to be ridden hard are ready to go.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
This frame’s head tube and fork are 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems without adding weight.
