FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents. Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class these tough DT R460 wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.Featuring 2017 shared geometries:Specialized have created a shared geometry that expands the fit range of the Tarmac platform and accommodates a greater percentage of competitive road fits. Their research into this model began in 2014 by analyzing the Retül database of over 40,000 professionally performed fits. By removing gender information and plotting a single chart, they're able to create frame sizes that can accommodate all rider's individual needs on the bike. Based on the research they concluded there was no statistical difference for stack/reach and grip position correlating to gender. There was need to accommodate handlebar width, crank length & saddle preference which has lead to women's builds. Max tire clearance has increased to a measured 30mm - Stiffer more reliable derailleur hanger: offers increased shifting precision because hanger stays precisely in place when a wheel is installed/removed and is less prone to bending. - Universal cable routing removes external housing bullets and allows any frame to be a visually clean bike with electronic groups, and also allows mechanical shifting to easily be used. Direct mount brakes have improved tire clearance and an improved, crisp feel at the brake lever. Integrated BB30 bottom bracket standard with CNC alloy cups. This offers the best combination of precision, compatibility, and low weight of all BB standards.

Specialized Road Bikes
Specialized was born in California in 1974, by Mike Sinyard, initially as an Italian Component import business, and shortly afterwards manufacturing their own product ranges. Their first bikes were created in 1981, the Sequoia tourer and the still popular Allez road and Stumpjumper mountain bikes. In 1989 they were the second ever company to create a carbon fibre mountain bike, in the form of the Epic. To this day they offer a huge variety of bicycles, from children's to road bikes to mountain bike, which vary in cost from a few hundred to several thousand pounds. Nowadays Specialized are renowned for not only their bike ranges, but also their components, helmets, shoes and clothing lines, which have a reputation for being well designed yet affordable, and as such are a popular choice amongst UK riders of all levels.
