I think they made a mistake with the title which should read "The sue first revolution". :lol:

Been running for 15 minutes - the webcast was a bit shakey at times (streaming) and just finishing up.

They are introducing the #NewTarmac and thair "rider first' means, in short, changing the characteristics / handing of the !!! Spammer !!! on rider size - forces exerted are not consistent. So rather than have different sized bikes throughout the range with the frame scaled up or down (different sizes - size specific) - the concept means that a smaller frame will be built differently -likely frame layout (compositing) and tube shape to manage compliance, stiffness, etc.

The primary example was cornering which the specialized presenter were saying they were having problems with. Quite amusing were the presenter claiming that riders have problems staying on the bike and balancing. This example didn't transfer well it intended to refer to nuances.

Cornering was promoted at the major advantage while the presenters also commented that they are increasing power transfer and compliance in each sized bike.

New Tarmac will also come with rim and disc brakes
