For 2015 Specialized has reworked the geometry on the Tarmac line and is calling it Rider-First Engineered. Some explanations are found below:
Dedicated seatstays for each size frame tunes rear-end stiffness for optimized power transfer and handling. Lower bearing size varies by frame size to achieve steering response targets established by Rider-First Engineered™ process. Disc Brakes – Every model Tarmac is available with disc brakes for unparalleled control and modulation – no matter the conditions. FACT Monocoque Chainstay/BB – Seamless design to optimize stiffness and handling across all seven frame sizes. Exclusive ROVAL SCS hub enables short chainstays required for optimal handling and ideal chainline for flawless shifting.
So what does Rider-First Engineered™ mean? It’s a completely new approach to frame design that begins and ends with the rider. Real-time data was collected which was then used to set optimal performance targets for each size frame. Specialized engineers then hit those targets, delivering unprecedented complete performance in acceleration, handling, and compliance all in a weight-optimized package.
