Specialized S-works Roubaix Sram Etap Road Bike 2018 56 – CARBON / ROCKET RED / KOOL SILVER
Smoother is faster.
But with the all-new S-Works Roubaix with SRAM eTap this philosophy is taken to new remarkable heights.The frame is one of the lightest ever made and it's been constructed from 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 Specialized 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.' Specialized call it Future Shock and essentially it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel.
Specialized 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 Specialized 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 they have tested with their Rolling Efficiency Model the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.Lastly Specialized spec'd it with top of the line equipment like the futuristic SRAM eTap wireless shifting and featherweight Roval CLX 32 carbon wheels.> Featuring Specializeds 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.
