Is that a depth change in the rear wheel ?
Looking at the Roval graphics on both front and rear wheels the rear definitely looks deeper! Not sure about the weird growth at the top of the seat post..... shame they didn't get a shot of the drive side.. would of liked a closer look at the groupset

Need new Tarmac but RIM BRAKE PLEASEEEE
So the thing about the SL7 is integrated cabling...which clearly can't be done without proprietary/shitty brake systems. Just get an SL6.
I would :) but they are out of stock :)

The new Rapides are 51mm front, unknown depth on the rear. Probably somewhere between 60-62mm.

The growth on the seatpost is a receptacle for the Di2 junction box. Hopefully they offer a regular seatpost for eTap builds.

Looks very likely that the S-Works level frameset is electronic only.

Rapides look WIDEEEEEE. If they are 23 internal or wider im a happy boy. +1 that seatpost is disgusting and hoping for an etap seatpost. I would stuff the junction in the downtube and charge with a second junction if I could avoid that seatpost.

If they have a different/cleaner etap seat post I could be interested.. but at the moment more drawn to the new Emonda... can't wait to see the weight and aero differences.. however could be tempted to commit high treason and put Rovals on a Trek 😳

+1, The DI2 seat post port on my venge is a pain. Can't really use a saddle bag and it gets covered in dirt off the wheel. They do supply the mount for the handlebar but would need rewiring. Would be so much better on the downtube.

Is that saddle a weird iteration of the Power?

Thats everything I want the new Tarmac to be. Looks like the dead of Venge is confirmed then. Probably selling along the line of : “the fastest bike on any gradient”.

This looks like what the SL6 would be if it was optimized for disc only. Bummer for rim brake fans like myself but i guess this is progress
