5/5 BikeRadar “The Roubaix’s comfort, control and handling qualities are among the very best”

Fast and efficient on every road surface. The Specialized Roubaix Elite is an endurance road bike that offers an incredibly smooth ride, with predictable handling characteristics, making it ideal for sportives and rides over less than perfect road surfaces.

Smoother is faster. The new Roubaix features revolutionary compliance technology developed in partnership with McLaren. The Future Shock is a piston in the head tube offering 20mm of travel to reduce fatigue over rough terrain allowing you to ride faster. Positioned above the head tube, the Future Shock offers vertical compliance while the wheels are still rigidly held together by the frame. This means, that unlike traditional suspension systems, or forks that offer fore/aft deflection, the wheelbase remains constant, so you get extremely predictable handling combined with a smooth ride. In addition to this the seatpost offers 20mmof rearward arc compliance for comfort in the saddle, that still maintains frame stiffness and geometry. 

The Fact 10r carbon fibre composite frame is the lightest that Specialized have ever made and is combined with the top of the line Roubaix FACT 11r carbon disc fork, with 12m thru-axle, for supreme stiffness. Endurance geometry offers a slightly more upright riding position that is ideal for long rides over challenging terrain, while Ride-First Engineering ensures that you get the same great ride experience in every frame size. 

The Shimano 105 2×11 speed groupset is combined with a Praxis Alba compact chainset and wide range cassette for reliable shifting over a wide range of gears. Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes offer confident all-weather stopping power while the 26c puncture protection tyres offer a little extra grip.

Speed, comfort and a supremely smooth ride, you get them all on the Specialized Roubaix Elite.
