Key Information

FEATURES

Smoother, faster, lighter, more control—we could go on and on when it comes to the all-new Roubaix Expert with Shimano Ultegra Di2. If we were to describe it in one word, though, it would be "revolutionary." 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, we spec'd it top of the line equipment, like Ultegra Di2 shifting, hydraulic disc brakes, and tough DT R460 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.
  • Shimano Ultegra Di2 shifting offers 11-speeds of electronic wonderment. Shifts are as precise as it gets, dropping chains becomes a rarity, and the trim adjust up front ensures that chain rub is a thing of the past—no matter how extreme your cross-chaining gets.
