With cutting edge technology in mind, Specialized have brought the 2016 Tarmac Expert Disc Race to the forefront of intelligent design with the Rider-First Engineered geometry where all sizes respond in the same responsive and iconic way.

By building the frame around the new technology of hydraulic disc brakes, speed and performance is enhanced meaning later braking and a stiffer ride. The FACT 10r carbon frame and FACT full carbon fibre fork, combined with a Shimano Ultegra 11 speed groupset and a Roval Rapide CL 40 Disc wheelset makes the Specialized 2016 Tarmac Expert Disc Race the perfect machine for training rides and racing.

Learning from McLaren's advanced testing approach, we developed industry-first simulation models and dynamic testing protocols that gave our engineers an unprecedented ability to understand exactly how various sized bicycles respond to different stresses. This data allowed us to engineer frames that take into account the most important element on a bike: the rider. As a result, we're able to identify specific performance targets for each of the seven frame sizes and then independently engineer each one in order to achieve the discrete performance targets. This means consistent performance for every bike, regardless of size.
Hydraulic and mechanical disc brakes provide more efficient stopping power, regardless of the weather or terrain. Additionally, they provide more modulation while requiring less hand input. This results in keeping you safe, confident, and fresher at the end of the day.
Our FACT carbon frames are the result of years of carbon engineering and manufacturing experience. And with FACT carbon fibre technology, they possess the ideal balance of weight, stiffness, and vibration damping for complete performance.
