The current ITU World Champion Flora Duffy will start the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Bermuda aboard a very beautiful custom painted Specialized Tarmac Disc and we managed to take a closer look.
"It's so cool to have a custom bike inspired by Bermuda. It is hand painted by the greatest of bike designers Ron Jones (@notenoughswedes on IG). The mother of pearl detailing is just crazy. Anyone who has been to Bermuda knows the pastels reflect the colourful Bermuda houses. A special project that I’m excited to debut here in Bermuda," said Duffy on social media.
This stunning Bermuda themed Specialized Tarmac is a tiny size 49cm and according to Wikipedia Flora Duffy measures 5'5" tall.
The first name here will certainly do. Everyone knows who Flora is.
The Shimano Dura-Ace disc brakes will allow Flora Duffy to race that course in Bermuda aggressively, and when you look closer at the chain stays and seat stays you will notice even more detailed art.
Duffy runs a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 drive train on this Specialized Tarmac. The Shimano cassette for the course in Bermuda is 11-25.
This is the very beautiful mother of pearl detail Flora Duffy mentioned on social media. The Roval CLX 50 Disc Tubular wheels have Specialized S-Works Turbo Tubular 26mm tires on them. The bottle cages are matte black Specialized S-Works Carbon cages.
Short Shimano Pro extensions allow Flor Duffy to get aero and down to business when needed.

Flora Duffy rides 165mm Shimano Dura-Ace cranks with a 53-39 chainring combo and Shimano pedals.
Truly stunning from every angle.
