They also have the framesets displayed as well with the different colors for non-ultralight disc Tarmac. Don't care much for the colors.

From Cycling Tips SL6 Disc Review:
I didn’t tear this bike down for an actual frame weight, but the grand total is bang-on with Specialized’s claims — actual weight for my 52cm test sample is 6.58kg without pedals, or an insignificant 10g heavier than official figures. Equipped with a set of Shimano Dura-Ace pedals, a Wahoo ELEMNT Bolt computer and aluminum Bar Fly mount, and a pair of Specialized Rib Cage II bottle cages, the total weight is a still-impressive 7.15kg (15.76lb), with room to move downward.

**note**
The SL6 disc still appears to be an S-works only option. My sources tell me that will remain the case until next model year at least.

This is so exciting!!! We’ve been waiting for this bike for so long.

Does anybody asked the LBS if specialized is going to make available the Sagan Superstar Disc frameset?

Came across this thread when doing some bike searching and it look's like it's officially here. Specialized just announced the new s-works tarmac disc on their website. I'm going to be booking an appointment to check it out at Bike Depot. They have the new Tarmac Disc up on their website and I live in Toronto :) Hope it rides as nice as it looks! https://bikedepot.com/news/s-works-tarm ... -launched/

I'm not too sure. I seen that the US has two colorways out but it doesn't look like it's coming to Canada, not sure? I'll be asking the guys at the store. Hopefully they have more info.

Doesn't look like it. There's already several limited edition frames including the QSF team, Bora-Hansgrohe team, Boels-Dolmans team, reddish-blue chameleon, teal geometric pattern, purplish-blue geometric pattern chameleon.

It just doesn’t look as good as the rim brake version in my view, something a little off about the balence on the disc version. Pretty personal but I don’t think a slim frame/fork combo suits discs.

The Ultralight comes with the gloss black logo and silver stencil option? I thought that was just a regular S-Works.
