Specialized just released a new Tarmac SL6, and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) rode an iridescent S-Works model to victory on stage 3 of the Tour de France.

Specialized is claiming the new S-Works Tarmac frame weighs 733g in a size 56cm. Specialized will be selling a few models, with the top build weighing a claimed 6.2kg/13.7lb when built up with Roval CLX32 wheels, ee brakes and a special paint job that only adds 10g.

Sagan can't race a bike that light, of course, per UCI rules. His mechanics keep his bike at regulation 6.8kg/14.99lb with Roval CLX50 wheels and a standard Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 with direct-mount calipers. His 4iiii power meter only adds a few grams.

Sagan uses Specialized's Aerofly bar with bare tops — the way the aero engineers like to see it — and a Zipp SL Sprint stem with its logos covered with electrical tape.

Along with the special iridescent paint job and matching saddle from Specialized, Sagan gets another personalised touch with a custom Garmin mount from K-Edge.
