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 Specialized's 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 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.
