Tarmac SL 8: our super bike

The Tarmac SL8 creates unprecedented speed with a combination of aerodynamics, lightweight and ride-quality previously thought impossible. After eight generations and more than twenty years of development, it is not only the fastest Tarmac ever; it is the world's fastest road bike. 

Aerodynamics or light weight alone don't win races; it's speed that counts. To deliver that speed requires an uncompromising combination of aerodynamics, light weight, stiffness and flexibility. Through complex simulations with real-world data, the Specialized Ride Science team knows that the Tarmac SL8 is the fastest road bike ever made.
Lorena Wiebes "As a pro, you have to have complete confidence in your equipment. I am impressed with the S-Works Tarmac SL8. It's a super agile bike that cuts corners well. As a sprinter, you have an advantage if your bike is light AND stiff. The Tarmac SL8 has it all."

Lotte Kopecky: When I first rode an S-Works, I experienced a "wow" feeling. It's nice to have complete confidence in your equipment and it's an honor to have such support behind our Team SD Worx."

Our time trial bike: Shiv TT Disc

Specialized has developed a bike that is even more aerodynamic than the original Shiv, the fastest time trial bike ever developed. It is also 500 grams lighter and feels like the Venge. The Shiv is regarded as the new standard for speed. No compromises here either. The Shiv continues to focus on aerodynamics, fuel and fit, but does so in a whole new way. There is only one bike that is perfect for reaching the top of the time trial podium this season: the S-Works Shiv Disc. And of course it is ridden by the best women's team in the world. A promising combination..
