Specialized Roubaix Comp
When you're rolling smoother, you're rolling faster. And
regardless of if you're on the cobbles of Northern France or the
chip and seal of your hometown, you'll benefit immensely from the
all-new Roubaix Comp. The frame is the lightest that we've ever
made, and it's been constructed from our FACT 10r 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. 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. Lastly,
we spec'd it with awesome components, like Ultegra/105 11-speed
shifting, hydraulic disc brakes, and ultra-tough DT R460 Disc
- 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 FACT 10r frameset is
exceptional in every way, offering the ideal blend of light overall
weight and targeted stiffness. Meanwhile, the all-new Future Shock
"suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree
of comfort and control.
- A Roubaix Disc fork is built from our top-end FACT 11r carbon
fibre for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a
thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
- This Praxis Zayante 50/34T crankset is perfect for tackling
steep grades and rough roads.
- Comes equipped with a 40lbs spring (color: yellow, weight:
firm) installed, and also includes both 13lbs (color: blue, weight:
soft) and 25lbs (color: black, weight: medium) springs that can be
installed to match the terrain you're riding.
