Key Information

FEATURES

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 all-new Roubaix Elite, you'll be taming wild asphalt without any extra effort. This is how road bikes were always meant to be. The frame is the lightest that Specialized have ever made, and it's been constructed from 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. Also featuring the Future Shock, essentially a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. This technology was 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. By focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, means improved smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. Lastly, it's spec'd with awesome components, like Shimano 105 11-speed shifting, hydraulic disc brakes, and ultra-tough Axis Elite Disc wheels.

  • Featuring the 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 top-end FACT 11r carbon fiber for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
  • The Praxis Alba 2D crankset is perfect for tackling steep grades and rough roads, and it also features supreme ramping for precise shifts between rings.
