The Roubaix provides you with the tools you need to explore the road less traveled, while also keeping room in your wallet for a mid-ride brew.
The light weight frame has been constructed from FACT 9r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry.
Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." Specialized calls it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. They developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. They found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that they could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that has been tested with Rolling Efficiency Model, the Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
Lastly, the Roubaix comes equipped with hassle-free mechanical disc brakes that'll see you spending more time riding and zero time bleeding your brakes, a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, and Axis Sport Disc wheels that'll keep you rolling without trouble, mile after mile.
Features a Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The FACT 9r frameset holds its own with the highest-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes take the hassles out of set up and maintenance, while still offering plenty of stopping power.
With Shimano Tiagra taking the reins on shifting, you'll experience crisp shifts for many miles to come.
