Nothing is faster than the Tarmac SL8 thanks to a combination of aerodynamics,
lightweight, and ride quality previously thought impossible. After eight generations and
over two decades of development, it’s more than the fastest Tarmac ever - it’s the world’s
fastest race bike. Your legs up for it?

• AERO IN EVERYTHING: We’re putting aero where it matters - the leading edge - not
just where it looks good. In the process we’ve created our most aerodynamic road
bike ever. Yes, it’s more aero than the Venge. Clean air is optimized for maximum
advantage with the Tarmac’s new nose cone - the Speed Sniffer. By moving the steer
tube back - the tube that determines head tube width - the leading edge of the head
tube can be much sharper, delivering a much lower drag shape. Utilizing new UCI
rules, the Tarmac SL8 has the narrowest, most aero seat post we’ve ever made
ensuring fast moving, dirty air around the legs can flow back more cleanly. Doesn’t
victory smell sweet?
• MINIMUM WEIGHT, MAXIMUM AERO: Tarmac SL8 took learnings from Aethos to
be easily built at the UCI minimum with a full aero set up. The team delivered a mind
bending, scale tickling 685 gram frame - 15% lighter than the Tarmac SL7 and lighter
than anything on else on the World Tour*. With the ability to make lightweight a top
priority in the down tube, seat tube, and rear of the bike lessons from Aethos were
applied. The frame’s shape carries load so efficiently that extra carbon stiffness layers
become redundant. *Unless of course you count the time Kasper Asgreen raced our
585 gram Aethos frame during a Tour stage.
• GOES LIKE HELL, RIDES LIKE HEAVEN: With massive gains in stiffness-to-weight
- an improvement of 33% over the SL7 - the Tarmac SL8 takes legendary handling,
aggressive responsiveness and World Championship proven geometry to the next
level. The bike is stiffer at the pedals, more precise at the bars, and combines it with a
compliant ride in the saddle that sets a new benchmark for race bike comfort. Thanks
to our Rider-First Engineering, every rider, regardless of size, gets the same
unprecedented ride quality and handling. In the saddle the Tarmac SL8 delivers 6%
more compliance, floating over rough road with a supple feel unique in the high strung
world of race bikes. Tarmac’s proven geometry and 32mm tire clearance are identical
to the SL7, ensuring easy adaptation and the versatility to run higher volume tires
when needed.
• BEYOND GENDER: There can be more difference between two male cyclists than
between a male and female. Gender alone doesn’t provide nearly enough data to
specialize and that means creating male or female bikes is arbitrary and outdated.
Every rider can get the next level advantage of Tarmac SL8. It’s time to go Beyond
Gender.
• The Tarmac SL8 Expert delivers exceptional performance with a full SRAM Rival
eTap AXS groupset with power meter, C38 carbon tubeless ready wheelset, and an
SL7 stem with Specialized Expert Shallow Drop alloy handlebars makes for an
accessible performance-packed bike.
