Guess they don't speak french...

I don't think so. Consider this:
Specialized is said to quote 966 gram for a frameset including 360 gram fork, and the McLaren version is said to be 9-11% lighter, depending on size, so translated from a 606 gram frame means INSANELY LIGHT!! I wonder if it's true...http://www.bicycling.com/bikes-gear/new-bike-gear-previews/first-ride-2015-specialized-tarmac?page=0,1 wrote:The new bike will be available in three versions, setup for either hydraulic discs or rim brakes: The Pro and Expert options use the same frame, but come with different components; the S-Works uses higher-grade carbon that weighs 100 to 120 grams less. Specialized has not yet released prices or production weights, but the company claims that a painted S-Works frame weighs 966 grams and the fork comes in at 360 grams.

I asked Craig, the guy from EE, and he was as surprised to see Bontrager copied EE's design, without permission. Only the McLaren uses the original, in this case the new EE brakes, which are up for release in August.
It's crazy money for something like that though, if you are going to spend that much, why not something from Crumpton/Parlee etc?

No dude, they're quoting 966 for the frame plus 360 for the fork. Decently light, but not superlight.
