FIRST LOOK: Specialized Tarmac 2007


The Tarmac for 2007

A few weeks ago Spesh launched their latest stuff for 2007. We loved the 2006 version of this race bike and the latest one gets a whole host of innovative stuff, including SRAM gear components and some rather odd looking Roval wheels. No chance to ride it yet but here’s the details from the press release:

S-Works Tarmac 2007 Advancements from 06:

The lightest frame/fork/crank available!
Tarmac SL AZ-1 full carbon frame
S-Works 300g full carbon fork
Adjustable Barmac handlebar
S-Works carbon crankset
S-Works Pave SL Carbon post

The ‘new’ main features are:

Systems approach to Bike Design – Project Tarmac
Oversize Bottom Bracket / Crank combination – Stiffest/lightest available
Handlebar – integration of stem and handlebar creates stiffest combination
Wheels – models chosen for performance
Tyres – Mondo – Fast, light, great traction in corners
Saddles – Lightest available while maintaining good bloodflow
Gearing – more appropriate for competition and high speeds
