The Tarmac Expert with Shimano Dura-Ace finds the optimal blend of value and performance and ups the ante.

Like the S-Works Tarmac iterations, it features a Rider-First Engineered™ design that applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of its size, performs just as we intended. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry to past Tarmacs, plus a high-end FACT 10r carbon fibre construction.

To top off this legendary frame, the Expert features a full Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 groupset, Roval SLX 24 rims laced to DT Swiss hubs, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximise performance by providing the utmost in comfort. It's everything you need to take your racing to the next level, and more than enough to bag some PRs along the way.

The FACT 10r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of our top-end carbon production methods with our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac.
S-Works full FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
The 11-speed Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 shifting offers the smoothest, crispest shifts, while keeping overall bike weights extremely low.
