The S-Works Tarmac SL6 needs no introduction - we've been
seriously impressed by this updated race machine from Specialized.
And in the last couple of years they've really been knocking it out
of the park with some refreshingly bold paint schemes.
The Chameleon Green, as seen here, may not be the loudest that
they offer, but it's properly gorgeous, especially when that
flip/reflective paint catches the light. This one is looking
particularly crisp in a nicely co-ordinated build.
It's not just a pretty face though, this is a true race-ready
bike. Built with a mechanical Ultegra groupset and the fast-rolling
Roval CLX32 carbon wheelset there's a theme of reliability, proven
tech and pure, simple speed running through the build.
Specialized offer some good value "complete" builds of the
Tarmac, in both rim and disc brake form. But if you really want to
make it your own, we can also build up a frameset with your choice
of components. Whichever you opt for, we'll ensure the perfect
