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.
