Specialized's Tarmac Compact boasts a Tour de France-winning FACT-carbon frame and fork. It will only take one ride for you to appreciate the supreme combination of low weight and ripping power transfer that's evident whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. Component-wise, the Tarmac is adorned with a compact Shimano 20-speed drivetrain for conquering any ride, and wind-cheating DT Swiss wheels for oodles of speed over any terrain. Plus, the Tarmac comes with grippy dual-pivot brakes for maximum control and a fine helping of Specialized's quality aluminum components.
Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.
This frame’s head tube is 1 1/2 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 and not adding much weight.
