The 2015 Specialized Tarmac represents a revolution in bicycle design that begins
and ends with the rider. Dubbed Rider-First Engineered ™ the new approach was
inspired by Specialized partner McLaren, the leaders in Formula 1 development.
The result is a significant advancement in every aspect of road riding: acceleration,
cornering, and sprinting in every frame size, from 49 to 56 to 61 and everything in
“Previous Tarmacs had been ridden to victory at The Tour De France as well as
countless other wins, but when we started development of its replacement we knew
that the existing developmental approach would deliver only incremental performance
gains” said Chris D’Aluisio, Advanced R&D at Specialized.  “We needed a new
approach that didn’t simply make bikes lighter and stiffer, but truly made them better.”
Learning from McLaren’s advanced testing approach, Specialized developed industry-
first simulation models and dynamic testing protocols that gave engineers an
unprecedented ability to understand exactly how various sized bicycles respond to
rider input. This data allowed Specialized to engineer frames that don’t just simply
perform well in the test lab, but that take into account the most important element on
a bike — the rider.
