Product’s Desciption
2018 Specialized Roubaix Elite

The idea of a perfect road is a myth, as there's always a chip, a crack, a rough patch—you name it. But with the Roubaix Elite, you'll be taming wild asphalt without any extra effort. This is how road bikes were always meant to be.

The super-light frame has been constructed from Specialized's FACT 10r carbon fiber. 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, they've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that riders have come to love from the SL4, and kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to a 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. This technology has been developed 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 Specialized has tested with their Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
