The S-Works Tarmac SL8 LTD: Red Bull – BORA – hansgrohe Edition is the ultimate race bike, blending unparalleled aerodynamics, lightweight design, and superior ride quality. As the world’s fastest race bike, it’s no surprise that when Formula One’s top team sought cycling supremacy, they partnered with Specialized, the leader in sport innovation. Now, you can experience the same high-performance machine that the new team will race at the 2024 Tour de France.

This limited edition bike boasts Roval’s Rapide CLX II Team wheels, a new SRAM RED AXS group, and an S-Works Power Saddle with Mirror. Only 500 individually numbered bikes will be available, ensuring exclusivity. The Tarmac SL8’s aerodynamics have been maximized by optimizing the leading edge with a new “Speed Sniffer” nose cone, making it more aero than the Venge. The narrowest, most aerodynamic seat post made by Specialized ensures clean airflow, while the bike’s frame weighs a mere 685 grams, 15% lighter than its predecessor, the SL7.

Built with insights from Specialized’s Aethos, the Tarmac SL8’s shape efficiently carries the load, reducing the need for extra carbon stiffness layers. This results in a bike that’s stiffer at the pedals, more precise at the bars, and offers a compliant ride in the saddle, setting new standards for race bike comfort. The Tarmac SL8 also features 32mm tire clearance for versatility in any racing condition.

Equipped with the world’s lightest electronic group, SRAM RED AXS, and a Roval Rapide CLX II Team tubeless-ready wheelset, this bike is designed for champions. Available for preorder at $16,500, with deliveries anticipated in mid-July, the S-Works Tarmac SL8 LTD is your ticket to unparalleled performance and exclusivity.
