Why should riders be forced to choose between aerodynamics and weight, between ride quality and speed? Climb on the lightest bike the UCI will allow, then descend on the fastest. That’s the new Tarmac. Legendary handling that’s as fast as Sagan’s Venge and as light as Alaphilippe’s Tarmac, in a single platform. The days of choosing between bikes, of making sacrifices, are over. We don’t compromise on innovation, so our riders don’t have to compromise on race day.
“No matter how fast the Venge was, no matter how well the SL6 handled in the mountains, we knew choosing between the two meant our riders had to make compromises on race day. We just weren’t okay with that. That’s where the new SL7 came from, we were simply unwilling to allow those compromises anymore.”
