Before I get into the nerdy stuff about Evenepoel’s bike let’s zoom out and appreciate his amazing 2022 season so far.
The 2022 season is the first full season Remco is racing as an Elite professional cyclist due to the dramatic crash he had on La Lombardia 2020. He has been in recovery for 26 weeks thereafter.
Remco Evenepoel is only 22 years old and he has already been two times Road bike world champion.
Once as an elite pro in 2022, and the previous time was as a junior in 2018, winning both the road and Individual Time-Trial world titles.
He is already a great champion and getting known to the general public after this year’s wins of La Vuelta a Espana, Liege-Bastogne-Liege, and the World Championship. He has 15 races and stage wins this year 2022 alone.
Remco is bringing the Grand Tour victories experience for the first time to the team Soudal – QuickStep, and we can dream of a fantastic Tour de France 2023.
But for now let’s dig into Remco Evenepoel’s 2022 Bike size, and specifications.

Evenepoel Rides 52cm Frame Size
Remco Evenepoel is 1m71 tall and weighs 63kg at his peak form. Remco is a top Time-Trialist type of rider who happens to climb very well too. He is not a skinny rider like most typical pure climbers.
Remco Evenepoel rides the Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 size 52cm.
Specialized recommends the Tarmac SL7 size 52cm to riders from 1m63 to 1m70 tall.
The young Belgian rider being just over the fence of the size 54cm, he and the Retul fitter have decided to go one size down and race with the size 52cm.
It is the same frame size as two years ago when I analyzed Remco’s bike. However few details changed regarding his bike fitting.

Bike Fitting Evolution
The stem is now a 110mm Specialized S-Works and the handlebars are the PRO Vibe Aero Carbon 380mm width.
A longer stem and narrower handlebar, helped Evenepoel to optimize his aerodynamic position.
The seat post is now the 0mm setback Specialized S-Works Tarmac Carbon, and the saddle is the shorter Specialized S-Works Mirror Power.
The saddle’s position is more forward than his previous position to accommodate his optimized position toward the front.
Evenepoel’s saddle is set at 710mm height, measured from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle.
The tip of the saddle to the handlebar’s reach axle is 545mm. A slightly more stretched position than 2 years ago.
The crank arm’s length hasn’t changed, Remco is using the 170mm Shimano Dura-Ace crank arms.
The chainrings are the 54/40 teeth that are the new Shimano 12-speeds standard replacing the 53/39T.
One great feature of the Tarmac SL7 in my opinion is the low BB center which allows riders to have a lower center of gravity. Therefore an advantage in aerodynamic position compared to the rest of the bikes among the pro peloton.
The Tarmac SL7 in size 52cm has a 74mm BB drop.
Simple and Efficient Bike Setup
The bike is now equipped with the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 12-speeds, disc brakes type.
The groupset is almost stock except for the CeramicSpeed ceramic bearings bottom bracket.
Remco has his brake/shifter lever tilted inward allowing him to rest his wrist while in an aero position.
The wheels on Remco Evenepoel on most of the races he wins are the Roval Alpinist CLX II disc clinchers. These wheels of 33mm rim height are spinning on DT Swiss SINK ceramic bearings and are Tubeless ready.
The tires are the Tubeless Specialized S-Works Turbo RapidAir, 26mm of section.
Remco Evenepoel wears a Specialized S-work Prevail helmet, Oakley Custom Sutro Lite sunglasses, Castelli team jersey and bib-shorts, and Specialized S-Works Ares Road cycling shoes in red color on the World championships.
The shoes are connected to the Shimano Dura-Ace 9200 pedals via the red color Shimano SPD-SL cleats which have 5 degrees of float.
Like most great pro riders nowadays, Remco doesn’t wear cycling gloves.
