Zdenek Stybar's Specialized S-Works Tarmac - Gallery

The Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2019 Men's Elite winning bike

Zdenek Stybar (Deceuninck-QuickStep) took his second victory in as many weeks at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, the traditional curtain-raiser for the cobbled Classics season.

Like his first victory in Volta ao Algarve, Stybar raced aboard a Specialized S-Works Tarmac equipped with disc brakes with the Belgian team fully committing to the brake technology for the 2019 season.

The bike runs a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 groupset with Stybar opting for satellite sprinting shifters on the handlebar drops. Shimano's sister brand Pro provides the handlebar and stems for the team.

K-Edge has risen to prominence in recent seasons as the go-to, out-front computer mount for the vast majority of the professional peloton. Stybar's Tarmac uses a mount from the American brand alongside a chain catcher and Di2 junction box mount, which is thin enough to be used underneath the stem without acting as a spacer, as well as removing the need for a thick rubber band around the stem.

Alongside the frameset, Specialized provide Deceuninck-QuickStep with saddles, tyres and wheels from Roval. CeramicSpeed upgrades offer extra efficiency in the bottom bracket and hubs of the team race bikes.
