2014 Tour de France winner Vincenzo Nibali’s Specialized S-Works Tarmac
“More blue, more shark,” that was what Nibali requested following his 2013 special edition Tarmac.
So that’s just what Specialized set out to create, and thanks to the latest Tarmac’s large head tube and junctions, there was plenty of ‘canvas’ on which to go sharkishly crazy.
We love the Trident on the rear stays, and if you’re wondering about the pink, that’s a subtle nod to Nibali’s Giro win in 2013.
The team liaison informed us that Astana are one of the few teams for which SRM has made a 135BCD spider, meaning they can use standard Campagnolo chainrings.
Nibali’s preference for a Fizik Antares saddle means the team has to resort to electrical tape to cover up the logos.
