Specialized has proved that a smooth ride is key to speed with their S-Works Roubaix winning Paris-Roubaix on six occasions. With a newly altered design, the S-Works Roubaix makes no compromises when it comes to the ultimate performance, designed with Specialized's own and brand new Future Shock 2.0 to make for an agile and fast ride thanks to the newly added knob, featured atop the stem. This knob allows you full control with complete adjustability so you can switch between rigid and stiff to completely open in order to work perfectly with the terrain you're racing on for the best performance possible. This new feature allows the S-Works Roubaix's speed to be increased while the fatigue you experience is reduced, keeping you going faster for longer. Specialized has also changed the aerodynamics of the Roubaix, making it now equally as aerodynamic as their renowned Tarmac. This alteration has also reduced the weight of the frame, bringing it down to less than 900 grams in a size 56cm. With Specialized's Rider-First Engineering™, your comfort is maximised no matter your frame size, taking into account the geometry needs of each build to ensure the quality of performance is maintained throughout each one. An all-new Pavé Seatpost is featured on the S-Works Roubaix, bringing a high level of compliance to this bike as well as being aerodynamic with no extra weight gain. Specialized has fitted this S-Works Roubaix with a SRAM Red eTAP AXS 12-speed groupset that provides smooth and durable shifting that is maintained throughout your performance. Finally, this Roubaix also comes with a World tour level pair of wheels, the Roval CLX 32 Carbon fibre wheels to keep your performance optimised.
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.
