Specialized Tarmac Expert Disc 2019 Womens Road Bike Blue

The Specialized Tarmac Expert Disc is a fast, race-ready, carbon road bike designed specifically for Women. It is both lightand ready for it all with its disc brakes. If you plan on racing a Grand Tour this summer, sure, go rock that S-Works. But if you’re on the hunt for a glorious ride that can smash both a local crit and your friends on the weekends, you’ll feel right at home on the Women’s TarmacExpert Disc. In order to cut some grams from the Tarmac, but to also ensure that it’s stiff and compliant in exactly the right places, Specialized took major steps to improve their Rider-First Engineered technology. From different layup schedules and materials to visibly different forks, they scrutinized every single aspect of the Tarmac to ensure you’re getting the perfect ride. With this revamp, they also updated the geometry, basing it on countlessRetüldata points and professional rider input. This enabled them to develop a Performance Road Geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front-end and short wheelbase, which delivers instantaneous response and optimal power transfer. And while stiffness aids in the aforementioned, compliance must also be utilised for an optimal ride quality. Specialized designed a seatpost that builds compliance into the upper 120mm where clamping doesn’t happen, dropped the seatstays, and altered the seat tube shape. They also added tyre clearance up to 30mm, which translates to a 28mm Turbo Cotton on a Roval C38 Disc wheel. This allows lower pressures for decreased rolling resistance, increased traction, and more comfort. Altogether, these additions still have the Tarmac riding like a true race-machine, but it also takes a bit of the sting out of road imperfections. But why disc brakes? The real question is why not? They offer superior braking power and modulation, work exceptionally well in wet weather, and offer a very, very minor weight addition. All this means that you have more control and can go faster with more confidence. The build spec on this Womens Tarmac Disc is value-packed, featuring Shimano Ultegra mechanical shifting, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, a Roval C38 Disc carbon fibre wheelset, and a host of womens-specific pieces at every touchpoint on the bike, like a superlative Women’s Power Saddle with Mimic technology.
