Specialized Roubaix Sport Road Bike 2019 – Gloss Tarmac Black/Oil
Roubaix Sport was designed to thrive on long rides through rough country.
Hitting a sweet spot between performance and value the Roubaix Sport was designed to thrive on long rides through rough country.
The light weight frame has been constructed from our FACT 9r carbon fibre.
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.
Through some sophisticated engineering however we've managed to keep the same fit feel and position that we've all come to love from the SL4 and kept it consistent throughout the size-range with our Rider-First Engineered™ construction.
Of course you're probably thinking 'get on to the suspension thing up front.' We call it Future Shock and essentially it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel.
We 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.
Without giving a physics lecture we found that focusing on vertical compliance instead of fork splay meant that we could improve smoothness speed and comfort in one fell swoop.
And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model the Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
Lastly we spec'd the Roubaix Sport with 105 11-speed mechanical shifting hassle-free Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes and DT R470 Disc wheels that have been cased in our Turbo Pro 28mm tyres.
Features our 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 our 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.
Shimano's 105 shifting and hydraulic disc brakes ensure reliable shifting and stopping power in a variety of conditions.
DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable sealed cartridge hubs and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
