Saddle up on Specialized's Tarmac Apex Mid-Compact and go to the front of the pack. Its FACT-carbon frame and fork boast a supreme combination of feathery weight and ripping power transfer that you'll appreciate whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. You also have a quick-shifting SRAM Apex 20-speed drivetrain for conquering any ride, and wind-cheating DT Swiss wheels for oodles of speed over any terrain. Plus, the Elite comes with grippy dual-pivot brakes for maximum control and a fine helping of Specialized's quality aluminum components.
Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.
This frame’s head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
