Product Details

2013 Specialized Tarmac Mid Compact

Specialized's Tarmac Mid Compact boasts a Tour de France-developed 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 wide-ranging Shimano 18-speed drivetrain for conquering the hilliest of rides, and easy-rolling 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.
