Just in Time for Le Tour de France/Introducing Specialized's Newest Addition to the Tarmac Family: The SL4

STE-ANNE-DE-BELLEVUE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 29, 2011) -

Today, Specialized is proud to offer a sneak peak at a bike that will be ridden by some of the biggest names in cycling on the grandest stage. Come July 2nd select riders from Teams HTC High-Road, Astana, and Saxo Bank-SunGard will race the Tour de France on the next generation of Tarmac: the SL4. This pure race bike is the culmination of everything we've learned to date about working hand-in-hand with pros: taking their insight and putting it to use designing the fastest bikes in the pro peloton, without sacrificing the ride quality we all demand. And if you ask the pro riders who have racked up thousands of miles and hundreds of wins on Tarmacs over the years, they would agree.
