Peter Sagan's Specialized S-Works Tarmac

A custom painted world champion's machine

Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) resumed is Classics campaign with second place to Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) at E3 Harelbeke. The world champion rode away with his rainbow jersey predecessor on the penultimate climb, staying away from the chasing group of favourites.

Sagan did it all on his Specialized S-Works Tarmac, which is custom painted in the colours of the world champion. As well as the black and rainbow paintjob, the names of all the world champions are listed in S-Works logo. His name and PS logo adorn the top tube, with the Slovakian flag on the bottom tube.

The Tarmac is Sagan’s bike of choice, using it in around 90 per cent of his races and at 6ft tall, or 182cm, Sagan rides a 56 frame.

Sagan also has a custom Prologo Scratch 2 saddle and Look blade pedals, which are both decorated in the same colours that his bike was decked with in 2015. The K-Force seatpost also has a little added colour, with Sagan’s PS logo and the rainbow stripes of the world champion.

Aside from the small custom elements, Sagan’s Tarmac is set up in the same way as the other riders. It is kitted out with FSA components, with the vision handlebars that measure 42 centimetres from centre to centre. It also uses a Shimano Dura Ace 11s groupset with a 53x39 set-up on the front chainring and 11x28 on the back.
