The S-Works Tarmac SL4 is a pure and unbridled race machine. It climbs effortlessly, descends confidently, and sprints ferociously. It's the lightest, stiffest frame we make and it shows as soon as you push on the pedals. Bottom line, you'll be faster on this bike. There's a reason it's the weapon of choice for the Saxo-Tinkoff, Astana and Omega Pharma-Quick-Step Pro Tour teams.
The Venge is fast. Plain and simple. Behind it sits a myriad of science, testing, aerodynamic tweaking and design. What does all this mean for you? A bike that's faster in the flats, faster over rollers, and faster in sprints. The Venge will save you 22 watts over 40kp/hr compared to a Tarmac. Couple that with FACT carbon that's nearly as light as it is stiff and the only excuse you have for going slower are those things you're standing on.
For women who live to race—whether it's a pro-level crit or a city-line sprint with the local club—the Amira Pro SL4 features an all-new, incredibly light and stiff FACT 10r carbon frame with women's-tuned geometry; plus FACT carbon crank, SRAM Force components, and Roval Rapide CL40 wheels.
With an S-Works level frame, Smartweld technology and SL Hydroforming, full Shimano Dura Ace drivetrain, Roval CLX wheelset, and full monocoque Tarmac carbon fork, the S-Works Allez is ready for any road race or crit along. It'll also make your toughest weekend rides your fastest weekend rides.
Smoother is faster. The more comfortable and less fatigued you are at the end of a 4 hour ride, the stronger you'll be. Like shocks on a race car, the Zertz vibration damping inserts on the Roubaix SL4 help absorb road impact and keep power planted firmly on the road - couple that with a FACT carbon 8r frame and it's still plenty stiff to thrash around in a sprint. Just ask four time Paris-Roubaix champion Tom Boonen
The S-Works Ruby is a quick and efficient, FACT carbon bike, with OSBB and Zertz vibration dampers in the frame and fork, designed to cover long distances with maximum control, efficiency, and comfort. Top-of-the-line Dura-Ace compact drivetrain and Shimano Tubeless Carbon wheels are ready for a gran fondo or local race.
Ruby Elite Rival HRR is a quick and efficient, FACT carbon bike, with Zertz vibration dampers in the frame and fork, designed to cover long distances in maximum control and comfort. SRAM S Series hydraulic rim brakes and Rival drivetrain keep stopping power high and weight low.
