Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 Di2 was £8500, now £6,800
Read more: Specialized Tarmac Sl6 Di2 review
Evans Cycles is discounting the exceptional S-Works Tarmac Sl6 by a whopping £1700. If you’re after the best bike on the market, now is the time to upgrade.
What we love about the Specialized S-Works Tarmac is that is merges a surprisingly compliant ride with pure performance. The frame is stiff despite its diminutive size and the whole bike works in perfect unity – there’s no weak part on this bike.
Specialized Tarmac Sl6 Expert was £3500, now £2800
A little bit further down the Tarmac tree sits the Tarmac Sl6 Expert that’s now discounted by £700.
It has the same frame design as the S-Works model and it still uses the same proven Rider-First Engineering but it has slightly different components. It has Roval SLX 24 wheels and uses a Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset.
Specialized Roubaix Elite 2018 was £2,600, now £2,079
Read more: Specialized Roubaix Expert review
It’s jammed full of technology, including Specialized’s Future Shock suspension that adds 20mm of travel underneath the stem. The Elite model featured here comes with a Shimano 105 groupset with Praxis chain rings and DT Swiss wheels.
Specialized Roubaix Comp 2018 was £3100, now £2480
A FACT Carbon 10R frame and Rider-First Engineering makes this a lightweight performance bike. It comes equipped with a Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset and DT Swiss wheels.
Specialized Tarmac SL4 Sport was £1749, now £1294.99
This 26% discount could make this the perfect upgrade bike to take your riding to the next level. It has a Shimano 105 groupset with Praxis chain rings and Axis brakes. The important thing is that the frame is quality, even if it doesn’t have the dropped stays of its more senior Tarmac siblings.
