Any news on the new S-Works Tarmac disc?

Expected release in December, not much details in terms of weight/etc. I would think that if they are spacing the launch out that far it either is somehow lighter than the rim frame, or they haven't finished development and are trying to match it.


Or making sure they can meet the demand. I suspect these are going to move.

that's how it's supposed to be on that type of frame - the EE 'rear' brake is for mounting under the chainstay/bottom bracket

Had thought that may be the case. Thanks.

I'm in a dilemma. I can still put my hands on a Tarmac Comp Disc 2017 but I'm doubting because of the brakes and QR. Some sources say that the 2018 version will be the SL5 frame (does this mean no changes at all, no changes to flat mounts and thru axles?) while others think they will update the frame to flat mount and thru axles. Any thoughts on this?

I hope it's the latter because otherwise we will have to wait another year (at least) for them to release these principles on a 'low-end' Tarmac Comp Disc.

All bike manufacturers are moving from QR to thru-axle. Specialized will certainly do the same for its Tarmac Disc 2018. Also flat mount disc brakes.

I would wait if I were you (my LBS told me that he will get the info in August as he will attend their event).

And if you buy the 2017 do get a BIG discount!

I can only get a 15% discount. I was hoping to get 30% like my Specialized Epic last year but 15% is all I got. I think I'll follow your advice and wait for the info on the 2018 models. My LBS told me he is attending their event in September (Belgium) but maybe it's sooner in other countries. Let's hope it's august!

I live in Canada and the Specialized event for the dealers is in August. I will post here anyway as I may buy a Tarmac disc 2018.
After the announcement of the Tarmac Disc 2018 the 2017 will get bigger discount!

Different sites already posted pics of what should be the 2018 disc model. If the production model is 95% like this and the weight on par with the regular rim braked sl6, , I think it's worth the wait :P

from Bikeradar f.ex:

Yeah, but according to Bikerumor the Tarmac Comp Disc 2018 is a 'carry over' of the old frame.

The SL5 frameset continues for 2018 with the Tarmac Expert Disc, Tarmac Comp, Elite, Sport, and base Tarmac.


I interpretated this as the new 2018 model being the previous SL5 frame but with updated parts.

Do it.

It seems like the pro peloton has grown apathetic to the issue now that more of the big names have elected to ride disc brake bikes at the biggest races. Still no representation in mountain stages, but that's the next "landmark." A lot more national level racing orgs are relaxing their stance as a result.

Giant hasn't even shown off an updated rim brake Propel, electing to change the paint on the existing frame for 2018. All of the major lightweight bikes have disc versions on the way: Teammachine, Emonda, Tarmac, SuperSix Evo, Ultimate CF SLX, Addict, Dogma F10, etc. Now we're just waiting on the refreshes of more aero frames. My prediction is by grand tour season 2019, the majority of the peloton will be using disc brake bikes, perhaps a greater percentage than the amateur level because of slower upgrade cycles and no pressure to switch from sponsors.
