Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7


The first of many Dura Ace 9270 builds to be featured over the next few weeks on our Build Gallery - and what better way to start than with what is fast becoming a modern classic in the S-Works SL7.

The first impressions from the Shimano Dura Ace groupset are excellent - we always like to speak to mechanics about how any new components / bikes go togethere as they get instant experiance with build quality and ease of use. Our mechanic's feedback is front and rear shifting is incredibly smooth and fast, brakes have lot of modulation and are totally silent and setup / installation could not be easier.

This build features the Dusty Blue S-Works Tarmac frameset (that looks radically different to the stock photos) and is rounded out by Zipp 404 Firecrest wheelset. It's no secret Zipp had a difficult few years of production, but their latest wheelsets seem to have got them back on track as one of the best wheel brands on the market.
