Specialized's S-Works Roubaix has claimed victory at Paris-Roubaix SIX times, proving that a smooth ride is key for going fast, so fast that it consistently wins. Specialized has altered its design of the S-Works Roubaix to ensure that no performance compromises are made, featuring brand new Future Shock 2.0 that's both smoother and faster as well as providing you with even more control than ever before via a knob that's now been fitted to the top of the stem. This newly added knob is adjustable to allow for the compression to go from fully open to completely stiff, allowing you to alter accordingly to the terrain and maximise your performance. Overall, the new Future Shock 2.0 allows for a reduction in fatigue whilst allowing for an increase in speed. The new S-Works Roubaix features newly designed aerodynamics that makes it equally as aero as the Tarmac and allows for the frame to be lighter than ever, coming in at under 900 grams. Specialized's Rider-First Engineering™ ensures the Roubaix maintains its high-performance in any frame size, providing a comfortable geometrical fit for all riders. The new S-Works Roubaix has been fitted with a completely new S-Works Pavé Seatpost that's compliant, aerodynamic and comes at no additional weight cost. Taking the D-Shape design from the Tarmac, Specialized paired that with a new drop-clamp design within the frame that allows the new Roubaix to perfectly balance the front-end whilst maintaining an agile ride feel throughout your performance. The S-Works Roubaix has been fitted with a full Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 set-up to ensure you've got swift and reliable shifting at your fingertips. Finally, the Roubaix has also been equipped with World Tour Roval CLX 50 carbon fibre wheels and 28mm Turbo Cotton tyres to keep your performance at it's best.
Compliance without Compromise
Specialized's wealth of experience in aerodynamic road bikes has been used to benefit the new Roubaix. Thanks to a re-engineered tube shape design the frame has been proven to be as aerodynamically fast as the current Tarmac SL6. Specialized has ensured that each sized bike benefits from the same weight advantages and ride quality through their Rider-First Engineered™ frame that tips the scales below 900 grams (Size: 56cm - Black). Is it still comfortable? Sure, but don’t call it a comfort bike, because the performance was behind every engineering decision Specialized made. This is the new Roubaix.
Future Shock 2.0
The best cyclists in the world are always demanding a bike that delivers a smoother and more controlled ride, even on routes as challenging as the Paris-Roubaix. Specialized's updated Future Shock 2.0 suspension system has impressed even those racing in the spring classic. The control begins via a knob placed on top of the stem, using this knob you can adjust the amount of compression from fully open to completely firm. As a result, you can expect less road fatigue on both you and the bike and smoother overall riding experience.
Specialized's fantastic and brand-new Pavé seatpost has taken the D-shape design from the Tarmac and added more flexibility into the upper section where the saddle meets the seatpost. This means that you gain a smoother, more balanced and controlled feel no matter how challenging the surface is below you.
