Just arrived - Ultralite in 52cm weighs 792.5g with hanger.
The Ultralight comes with the gloss black logo and silver stencil option? I thought that was just a regular S-Works.
I concur, I believe the bike in the photo is the regular S-Works. Ultralight has greyish logo. I am seeing this directly at the product spec.

I can confirm this is 100% a UL frame, it has UL printed on the box, it's a very raw finish and the fact it comes in at under 800 grams confirms it's a UL.

I'll post photos of it once it's built ;)

The Ultralight Disc frameset has the following Part No. 74918-0044. It is always listed on the frameset. I hope the UL is not identical to the regular S-Works frameset, but has a different S-Works logo finish just as depicted on the Specialized website. You are paying more money mind you.

Looking forward to seeing your final build. Waiting for my LBS to tell me that my 61 cm UL frameset has arrived. Will be sure to take pics (including Part No.) and share some weights and data.

Cheers,

Dan

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?
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.

Retail pricing isn't showing on Specialized's site yet. Anyone knows the MSRP in USD for a full bike?

I mean, the 56cm UL is supposed to be 733g and the 56cm non-UL is supposed to be 800g, so a 52cm UL ate a few too many crackers if it weighs nearly 800g.

All the reviews are saying $11k. The rim brake with DA Di2 is what, $9500? And the new bikes are getting disc brakes and a power meter, so that's an easy $1500 price hike.

Looking forward to the Etap disc model being $13k or something stupid like that.

I really like this one and, about a year ago, when I had essentially decided that the S-Works Tarmac Disc would be my next bike, this is exactly how I had envisioned it.

However, the long delay before the disc model's release, and the reality of the crazy retail prices for high-end bikes (especially in Canada) thave caught up with me. I ended up ordering a Canyon Aeroad CF SLX Disc with Ultegra Di2 instead. What's crazy about it is: I still consider that to be a high-end bike, but even with the addition of a P2M power meter, it comes down to less than HALF (!!!) of what this S-Works Tarmac disc would have cost me. And that's where my budget topped out.

I think it's still a nice consolation price (especially for less than half the price of the Tarmac), but looking at that bike, I can't help but think I would have liked it a lot. I love my SL4...

Its new- all want it- price will be high. So they work less and earn same money. Smart

Why they will be cheaper and sell more (work more, has more failures....)

:D
