Red Bull S-Works Tarmac SL8 • Video

The Tour has started; not only is this the time that the best cyclist in the world goes head to head for 3 weeks, but many brands release new products, and teams release custom bikes and kits. Early in the week, the official presentation of the Red Bull BORA Hansgrohe Team was made and the new design of the Red Bull S-Works Tarmac SL8 was released. This is a VERY similar bike to what Specialized is offering to the general public for a whopping $16,5000 (USD).

In the video below, one of the team mechanics assembles Australian Jai Hindley’s bike from scratch from the iconic Hangar 7 at the Red Bull headquarters in Salzburg, where airplanes, Formula 1 cars, and other iconic brand vehicles are stored.
