While there's a certain degree of truth in applying terms like "upgrade" or "value" to our Tarmac Comp, we prefer to refrain doing so. Why? Because the Tarmac Comp stands on its own two wheels as a bike that's born to perform and able to take your riding and racing to the next level. Like the S-Works Tarmac iterations, it features a Rider-First Engineered™ design that that applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of size, performs just as we intended. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 10r carbon fiber construction that's nearly mirrors what you'll find under the likes of Peter Sagan and Alberto Contador. For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, stiff, reliable DT Swiss R460 wheels, a mix of Shimano Ultegra 6800 and 105, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort. The FACT 10r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of our top-end carbon production methods with our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac. S-Works FACT full carbon fork with tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents. A Shimano Ultegra 6800 compact crankset is stiff and durable, while its 50/34T chainrings leave you with tons of spin when the roads start to get steep.
