Nothing is faster than the Tarmac SL8, thanks to a combination of aerodynamics, low weight, and a ride quality previously considered impossible. After eight generations and over two decades of development, it's more than just the fastest Tarmac ever—it's the fastest road bike in the world. Are your legs ready for it?

AERODYNAMICS IN EVERYTHING
We put aerodynamics where it matters—at the forefront—not just where it looks good. In doing so, we have developed our most aerodynamic road bike ever. Yes, it's even more aerodynamic than the Venge. The clean air is optimally utilized by the new nose of the Tarmac—the Speed Sniffer. By moving the head tube backward—the tube that determines the head tube's width—the leading edge of the head tube can be much sharper, resulting in significantly less drag. Taking into account the new UCI rules, the Tarmac SL8 features the narrowest, most aerodynamic seatpost we have ever made, allowing fast-moving, dirty air around the legs to flow away more cleanly. Doesn't victory smell sweet?

MINIMUM WEIGHT, MAXIMUM AERO
The Tarmac SL8 was built based on Aethos' findings to achieve the UCI minimum with a complete aero setup. The team delivered a stunning frame weighing just 685 grams—15% lighter than the Tarmac SL7 and lighter than anything else on the World Tour*. With the capability to prioritize weight in the down tube, seat tube, and rear of the bike, the lessons from Aethos have been applied. The frame's shape efficiently carries the load such that additional carbon stiffness layers are unnecessary. *Unless you count the time Kasper Asgreen rode our 585-gram Aethos frame during a Tour stage.

RIDES LIKE HELL, FEELS LIKE HEAVEN
With massive increases in stiffness-to-weight ratio—a 33% improvement over the SL7—the Tarmac SL8 takes the legendary handling, aggressive responsiveness, and world-championship-proven geometry to the next level. The bike is stiffer on the pedals, more precise on the handlebars, and combines this with a compliant ride in the saddle that sets new standards for road bike comfort. Thanks to our Rider-First Engineering, every rider, no matter their size, receives the same unprecedented ride quality and handling. In the saddle, the Tarmac SL8 offers 6% more compliance and glides over rough roads with a smoothness unique in the high-stress world of road racing. The proven geometry of the Tarmac and the 32-mm tire clearance are identical to the SL7, ensuring easy adjustment and the versatility to ride larger volume tires if needed.

BEYOND GENDER
There can be greater differences between two male cyclists than between a man and a woman. Gender alone does not provide nearly enough data to specialize, and that means the development of men's or women's bikes is arbitrary and outdated. With the Tarmac SL8, any rider can benefit from the next level of performance. It's time to go beyond gender.

The S-Works Tarmac SL8 is only equipped with the finest components. A complete SRAM RED AXS groupset with power meter—the lightest electronic group ever—and a Roval Rapide CLX II wheelset for tubeless tires are the perfect complements to the world's fastest frame. All S-Works Tarmac SL8 models come with a Roval Rapide cockpit to save weight and ensure the fastest possible lead.
