What's your reason for riding a road bike? For those that have ridden the 2013 Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL4 Di2 would probably say that the bike ALONE is their reason for riding. S-Works bikes from Specialized feature their lightest and stiffest frames, and use only the highest tech components for a ride that was born to race.

What's so great about the SL4? Here's an idea:

  • SL4 FACT IS 11r carbon frame with a tapered headtube
  • Oversized bottom bracket
  • Internal cable routing
  • FACT carbon front fork and seat post
  • Shimano Dura-Ace STI components
  • S-Works Turbo Blackbelt tires with Turbo Ultralight inner tubes

From this short list, you can tell that Specialized spares no cost when it comes to their highest model S-Works bikes. Examining only the Shimano drivetrain, you find that their Shimano Total Integration system juxtaposes the brake levers and shifting setup to offer the easiest braking and shifting available without requiring you to move your hands from the handlebars.

Further down the line in the drivetrain you find the electronically controlled Dura-Ace front and rear derailleurs. The gearing boasts 11 speeds for confidence on any type of terrain.
