Specialized S-works Roubaix Dura-ace Di2 Road Bike 2018 – Tarmac Black/Chameleon Edge Fade
Right at home at a local fondo a Saturday group ride or a cobbled road race.
For years you had to choose between stiff and snappy or compliant and comfortable for a race-bike—that is until the new Roubaix.
Featuring a completely Rider-First Engineered™ frame our Future Shock technology and a top-level build kit the S-Works Roubaix with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 is right at home at a local fondo a Saturday group ride or a cobbled road race.The frame is one of the lightest that we've ever made and it's been constructed from our top-tier FACT 11r 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 engineering sorcery 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 due to 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 new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.We spec'd our cobble-crushing S-Works frame with the legendary performance of the Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 Di2 electronic build kit and 9170 hydraulic disc brakes a full assortment of S-Works bits and hand-built Roval CLX 32s with the legendary CeramicSpeed bearings and custom hubs.
Add it all up and you get a race bike at heart with the technology to float over the roughest roads.
Featuring 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 S-Works FACT 11r frameset is our highest quality carbon frame offering 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.
An S-Works FACT Disc fork is built from our FACT carbon fibre for supreme stiffness strength and reactivity while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
The Roval CLX 32 wheelset is the perfect balance of light weight durability and aerodynamics.
It's stiff enough for sprinting strong enough for abuse and its CeramicSpeed bearings keep things silky-smooth making CLX 32 wheels the ultimate all-rounders.FRAMES-Works FACT 11r carbon Endurance Geometry Rider-First Engineered™ 12x142mm thru-axle Future Shock suspension 20mm of travel flat disc mountsFORKS-Works FACT carbon 12x100mm thru-axleFRONT WHEELRoval CLX 32 Disc Win Tunnel Engineered carbon rim 32mm depth Roval AFD Hub CeramicSpeed bearings 21hREAR WHEELRoval CLX 32 Disc Win Tunnel Engineered carbon rim 32mm depth Roval AFD Hub CeramicSpeed bearings 24hINNER TUBESStandard Presta valveFRONT TYRETurbo Cotton 700x28mmREAR TYRETurbo Cotton 700x28mmCRANKSETS-Works FACT CarbonCHAINRINGSCarbon fiber spider 50/34TBOTTOM BRACKETOSBB CeramicSpeed bearingsSHIFT LEVERSShimano Dura-Ace Di2 Disc 9170FRONT DERAILLEURShimano Dura-Ace Di2 9150 braze-onREAR DERAILLEURShimano Dura-Ace Di2 9150 11-speedCASSETTEShimano Dura-Ace 9100 11-speed 11-30tCHAINShimano Dura-Ace11-speedFRONT BRAKEShimano Dura-Ace Di2 9170 hydraulic discREAR BRAKEShimano Dura-Ace Di2 9170 hydraulic discHANDLEBARSS-Works Carbon Hover Drop 125x75mmTAPES-Wrap w/ Sticky gelSTEMS-Works SL alloy titanium bolts 6-degree riseSADDLES-Works Phenom GT 143mm carbon rails EVA foam carbon baseSEATPOSTSpecialized CG-R FACT carbon single-bolt 27.2mmPEDALSNylon 105x78x28mm loose balls w/ reflectors
