Check. It. Out.
For 2017 Specialized unveiled the Tarmac SL6, a new take on an already iconic frame with a lot of cycling-heritage. Nearly 200 grams lighter than the SL5 (that translates to almost 20%), clearance for 30mm tires and direct-mount brakes, the new SL6's performance is as good as its aesthetics. More aero and compliant than the prior generation, us here at RIDE feel these changes particularly in hard efforts and short sprints.
One of the only shops in the country to receive one - the Sagan SL6 Superstar Edition - our RIDE Cyclery Downtown Mechanic/Manager, Jose Leyva, took the opportunity to build-up a bike worthy of the World Champion!
S-Works carbon bars, Zipp stem, the latest from Cane Creek/ee cycleworks in direct-mount brakes, coupled with a full SRAM Red E-Tap groupo & Zipp 303 NSW's brought this build in just around 13.10lbs!
This complete build will set you back a cool $12500, the frame retailing for $4250.
Until then, it'll be on display at Ride Cyclery - Downtown
