The Tarmac has picked up multiple Grand Tour victories and two World Championships since its debut, proving its illustrious pedigree. The tapered S-Works-specific FACT full carbon fork provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response. Its Rider-First Engineered design ensures the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac, and now, the Tarmac Expert is available with SRAM's much anticipated eTap groupset—the world's first wireless shifting system. The 11-speed shifters offer a glimpse into the future of shifting. The system communicates wirelessly with the front and rear derailleurs for a ground-breaking level of performance, while offering new, intuitive shift capabilities. If you're looking for the world's most versatile and technologically advanced performance road bike, look no further than the S-Works Tarmac eTap.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
